  1. I fully admit that I purchased this book only after reading that it had won the Nobel Prize for Literature I love books and I was curious, I suppose, of how such a book might read Did it could it live up to the hype It easily surpassed it It is a magnificent story deserving of every literary award there might be It is, as is my personal standard for a five star rating, a truly transformative read It s worthy of six stars, truth be told.It is a story of the generational change and socio economic [...]


  2. Beautifully restrained book If you re looking for an author who holds your hold and forcefully tugs you through every emotion, every thought, and every conclusion, this isn t the book for you But if you appreciate a stunningly subtle and yet laser precise portrayal of a man who has spent his days in the pursuit of dignity another word for being emotionless and who realizes too late that he gave his life to an employer who didn t deserve it and withheld his love from a woman who did, then pick th [...]


  3. An engrossing 1st person narrative from the prototypical pre WW2 British butler, about serving the upper class, wasted lives, lack of emotional connectedness, and the fine line between humanitarian ideals and being duped by an evil Nazi regime All the incredible due to the Japanese ethnicity of the author, despite his upbringing in England His 1st novel not set in Japan, but England, very deservedly earned him a Nobel prize in Literature this year One of the best books you ve never read.


  4. I didn t quite like the book initially and found it rather dull and slow paced However, after I picked it up again after almost three months , I started to like it and The beauty of the classical English language The natural presentation of the narrator and his life make this book a great and enjoyable read, particularly and toward the end of it Perhaps I will enjoy it even as I get older This is a book that calms down one s soul and let one reconciles with one s past when the day is turning to [...]


  5. Don t be put off by readers who give the story or plot low points They would be better off buying a John Grisham or Lee Child action thriller.The author writes in an understated somewhat stern way, but you will feel the abyss of the human condition between the lines An outlandish mix of Jane Austen and Franz Kafka The author was only 30 at the time of writing this book, amazing Ishiguro has published only six books so far, but those six books has given him a deserved Nobel prize.


  6. A beautifully written novel This story of a repressed butler in pre war Britain who placed loyalty to his employer and profession over his own happiness, in a setting very similar to Downton Abbey, is a moving mediation on the perils of letting one s life go by without fully paying attention, and subsuming one s passions for duty work.


  7. This remains one of my favourite books The way that Ishiguro draws the reader into the butler s world is truly masterful Stevens is the epitome of a high class butler discreet, dedicated and loyal In a journey to visit an ex housekeeper, he shares, through a series of flashbacks, seemingly small incidents that occurred while he was serving in the great house of Lord Darlington Through Stevens perspective both what he says and doesn t say a sense of loss, regret and misplaced loyalty is conveyed [...]


  8. I think Ishiguro should have the Nobel Prize In all his books and I have read most of them he shifts into new grounds This is wonderful Most writers pick a bene and write the same book over and over sometimes with the same characters Not Kazoo Isiguro Each book arises from a different ethical or moral question each involves the subtle reworking of memory the fragile, terrifying aspect of looking back at one s life and each is magnificent.This is surely one of the best 100 books of all timephy bu [...]


  9. I read The Remains of the Day because I was inspired by an interview with the author following him receiving the Nobel Prize in Literature Ishiguro sounded like such a thoughtful, collected character In short, I liked him as a person and wanted to find out about him as a writer.In The Remains of the Day, Stevens takes respite from his butler s duty to undertake a short excursion into West Country to visit Miss Kenton, a woman who once worked with him as Lord Darlington s housekeeper On his trave [...]


  10. I bought this book after listening to a podcast and becoming intrigued It s about an English butler s experiences relayed as if to inform, inspire other butlers He reveals his dedication to service, his high standards, his loyalty to his employers and his personal sacrifices A very clever book which slowly reveals other interpretations and misunderstandings which have led to missed chances of personal happiness, all told within a period of historical turmoil and political upheaval As a reader yo [...]
