Book Review

(by- Linda )

This is one of those books that you either love or hate. I loved it. It reminded me of "Never Let Me Go" by this author. It's been a while since I read "Never Let Me Go," so I don't remember every detail - only that it was haunting, and I loved the way it made me think about life. This new book is similar.

I couldn't stop thinking about recent events while reading "Klara and the Sun." The story digs deep into what it means to be human. Klara is an AF; her sole purpose is to serve a young girl, Josie. This story is a beautiful exploration of love and the ugly flip side of love; the human capacity to be mean and insensitive.

Kazuo Ishiguro also has a very straightforward writing style, allowing the reader room to ponder the events and nuances of the book. This is a great book. If you like dystopian stories, science fiction, or books about human connections, love, and loss- I highly recommend this one.
