What buyers say about Kazuo Ishiguro's The Unconsoled
I have read five of Ishiguro's books, but "The Unconsoled" is at least three times the size of all of them.
The absurdity and shock make it hilarious, and I think some of the scenes with the most emotional impact may strike a nerve because they are told like a dream.
I am surprised by the negative reviews but I think it is still my favorite of his. Its a book that has a dreamlike quality that few people are commenting on.
The book was in a good condition when it arrived.
No one is redeemed except perhaps a young pianist on whom Ryder heaps encouraging praise, which is probably the one constructive thing he manages to achieve, during his sojourn.
