The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

If this blogwas just about finishing 52 books then I really should read more fiction. I borrowed this book from someone at work and returned it the next day. It took just two hours to read. That’s no indication of the quality though. I was a really good book but then as a winner of the Booker prize that’s hardly a shock. Previously I’d only seen a few clips of the film so expected a rather stuffy period piece. Instead it was very moving in a gently compelling way. Not overly dramatic or loud – just quiet, understated, and impactful.
