Klara and the Sun
June 9, 2021

By Kazuo Ishiguro

From amazon:

"Klara and the Sun, the first novel by Kazuo Ishiguro since he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, tells the story of Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, who, from her place in the store, watches carefully the behavior of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass on the street outside. She remains hopeful that a customer will soon choose her.

Klara and the Sun is a thrilling book that offers a look at our changing world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator, and one that explores the fundamental question: what does it mean to love?"


An intriguing, somewhat unsettling book. Beautifully written. Ishiguro has a distinct, spare, but descriptive writing style. Klara is a fascinating character. She has a unique perspective and voice. (Quite literally, as I had to listen to the audiobook)

The novel raises the question of what it means to be human. I found the ending deeply affecting.
