'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?

Unusual

Mixing a very personal writing style with a satle dystopian background and dialogue which often seems out of more ordinary worlds is nothing but unique.
Often this story looks like an art book where colours and backgrounds are tuned for maximum effect. And when the dialogue takes a pause as in Part Five the poetry of the unusual takes control with great effect. A book to discover which surprises when least expected.

Intriguing and spell-binding

This novel takes you on a journey into the techno future. It captures some of the moral and ethical implications which we may face in our lives.

Kirstymc1903 ,

Troubling but compelling

A page-turner from the outset as you slowly get to grips with this dystopian but very tangible world.
