Is this worth picking up? Saw it at a second hand shop for 2 dollars and was wondering if it is worth the time
>>
Yeah, it's good.
>>
sure, ishiguro in general is great, you should check out everything he wrote imo
>>
Yeah, pretty great read. I prefer Remains tho
>>
he's one of the greatest living writers, i can't believe how underrated he is on /lit/, maybe he isn't american enough.
>>
Op here, sounds good ill pick it up
>>

I have never seen anything bad said about him people love Remains here especially.

>>7628234
not post modern enough, not stylistic enough, pretty traditional writer with p. trad. themes
>>

true
not exactly meme fodder

That's cause no one here read his best book, The Unconsoled

the most uninteresting book i've read in such a long time. genre fiction on par with cormac's The Road, great author doing a really shitty book-club tier work. The prose, dialogue and characters are nothing unique. Starts like any other dystopian novel where things seem pretty normal at first but words are used a little strangely like "the gallery" in this novel, eventually the dystopian shit gets revealed, there's a big reveal at the end like every dystopian novel always has and then that's it. the only good part was the sparseness and that gets ruined with a huge resolve.

shit-tier book that undergrad freshman think is enlightening

the buried giant is a much better attempt at bridging literary fiction and genre fiction (assuming it needs to be bridged, which is a diff conversation) in a sensible way

This book made me extremely sad, 7/10 would recommend
