Product description

Review

One of the most affecting and profound novels Ishiguro has written….I'll go for broke and call Klara and the Sun a masterpiece that will make you think about life, mortality, the saving grace of love: in short, the all of it.”
Maureen Corrigan, NPR
 
“A delicate, haunting story, steeped in sorrow and hope.”
Ron Charles, The Washington Post
 
“It aspires to enchantment, or to put it another way, reenchantment, the restoration of magic to a disenchanted world. Ishiguro drapes realism like a thin cloth over a primordial cosmos. Every so often, the cloth slips, revealing the old gods, the terrible beasts, the warring forces of light and darkness.”
Judith Shulevitz, The Atlantic
 
“Ishiguro’s prose is soft and quiet. It feels like the perfect book to curl up with on a Sunday afternoon. He allows the story to unfold slowly and organically, revealing enough on every page to continue piquing the reader’s curiosity. The novel is an intriguing take on how artificial intelligence might play a role in our futures...a poignant meditation on love and loneliness”
Maggie Sprayregen, The Associated Press

“For four decades now, Ishiguro has written eloquently about the balancing act of remembering without succumbing irrevocably to the past. Memory and the accounting of memory, its burdens and its reconciliation, have been his subjects… Klara and the Sun complements [Ishiguro’s] brilliant vision…There’s no narrative instinct more essential, or more human.”
The New York Times Book Review

 “A prayer is a postcard asking for a favor, sent upward. Whether our postcards are read by anyone has become the searching doubt of Ishiguro’s recent novels, in which this master, so utterly unlike his peers, goes about creating his ordinary, strange, godless allegories.”
James Wood, The New Yorker
 
“One of the joys of Ishiguro's novels is the way they recall and reframe each other, almost like the same stories told in different formats...Again and again, Ishiguro asks: What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to have a self? And how much of that self can and should we give to others?”
NPR


“Moving and beautiful… an unequivocal return to form, a meditation in the subtlest shades on the subject of whether our species will be able to live with everything it has created… [A] feverish read, [a] one-sitter…  Few writers who’ve ever lived have been able to create moods of transience, loss and existential self-doubt as Ishiguro has — not art about the feelings, but the feelings themselves.”
The Los Angeles Times

“As with Ishiguro’s other works, the rich inner reflections of his protagonists offer big takeaways, and Klara’s quiet but astute observations of human nature land with profound gravity . . . This dazzling genre-bending work is a delight.”
Publishers Weekly [starred review]

“A haunting fable of a lonely, moribund world that is entirely too plausible.”
Kirkus Reviews [starred review]

Praise from the UK:

“There is something so steady and beautiful about the way Klara is always approaching connection, like a Zeno’s arrow of the heart. People will absolutely love this book, in part because it enacts the way we learn how to love. Klara and the Sun is wise like a child who decides, just for a little while, to love their doll. “What can children know about genuine love?” Klara asks. The answer, of course, is everything.”
—Anne Enright, The Guardian
 
“Flawless . . . This is a novel for fans of Never Let Me Go, with which it shares a DNA of emotional openness, the quality of letting us see ourselves from the outside, and a vision of humanity which — while not exactly optimistic — is tender, touching and true.”
—John Self, The Times
 
“With its hushed intensity of emotion, this fable about robot love and loneliness confirms Ishiguro as a master prose stylist.”
—Ian Thomson, The Evening Standard
 
“It is innocence that forms Ishiguro’s major subject, explored in novels at once familiar and strange, which only gradually display their true and devastating significance.”
—Jon Day, The Financial Times
 
“The novel is a masterpiece of great beauty, meticulous control and, as ever, clear, simple prose.”
—Bryan Appleyard, The Sunday Times

“A deft dystopian fable about the innocence of a robot that asks big questions about existence”
--The Financial Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Becoming Person in Love
By Singh, R. on 14 March 2021
When I read ‘The Buried Giant’, for a long time, and even today, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. The couple, their quest, the giant; everything still remains alive in my mind. A similar feeling dawned on me when I finished reading ‘Klara and the Sun’. There was something supremely beautiful and intelligent about this book that has tugged itself to me. Here is Klara, an artificial friend (AF) to Josie who is suffering from something only her AF could save her from. With her belief rising in the Sun, Klara is determined to be the best friend Josie could ever have. But Klara, with her qualities of observation like that of a raconteur, has feelings toward those around her. Her observations of others throughout the novel runs both with, feelings and a distance from them. She discovers a totem to which she ties herself and places all her hopes on. She finds someone to give herself to. She lives a life which settles into memory collapsing into each other like the various things she discovers of being a person. Ishiguro writes about Klara and her Sun with simplicity, one that’s elegant and yet so complex. The language with which he captures details is magnificent. I couldn’t put the book down despite deadlines weighing on my mind. I wanted to sit, walk, lie down but not stop reading the novel. I don’t think I wish to write anymore on this. Sometimes some books deserve lesser words and more time to be with you, sink into your mind and remain like a memory from one’s own life; such is ‘Klara and the Sun’. I think this easily qualifies for my second best Ishiguro after TBG.
