'This is a novel for fans of Never Let Me Go . . . tender, touching and true.' The Times


'The Sun always has ways to reach us.'

From her place in the store, Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.


In Klara and the Sun, his first novel since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly-changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

Touching

Simple, insightfully written and touching. This book continues to hover about in the back of my mind.
I will remember Klara long after I’ve forgotten her ‘humans’

Becohh ,

Klara feels like sunshine

Such a beautifully crafted character. She is full of innocence and curiosity. The novel was quite thought provoking and I definitely recommend.
