The Buried Giant - Kazuo Ishiguro

Title: The Buried Giant
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Pages: 304
Published: 2015
Genre: Fantasy
Edition: E-book
Source: Library

Description: Begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards—some strange and other-worldly—but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another. (via Goodreads)

Thoughts: Quite honestly, this one just flew over my head and by the time that I had gotten through about a third of the book and just had to focus on the book without focusing too much on what I had missed.

Unlike his Booker-prize winning book, The Remains of the Day, I felt kinda meh about the book and there was nothing that really wowed me while reading the book, even though I was intrigued with the book itself.

Bottom line: Like I said earlier, I thought that the book was okay and didn't have the power that Remains of the Day had.  Probably would recommend the book to those that enjoy retellings of familiar myths and stories.  Recommended.

Rating: 3.25/5
