    Meditation on Knowledge

    Really enjoyed The Buried Giant. It seems that most interpret the 'Buried Giant' to be the history that has been forgotten, but I prefer to think of it as 'The Truth' generally, as everyone is more or less deceitful to everyone else continually. If you don't really know what is going on, what difference would remembering what you think of 'history' be? I really enjoyed the devotion between Axl and Beatrice.

    Perplexed

    While beautifully written, I did not connect with the story and felt a sad emptiness at the end. A missed potential

    A Moving Fantasy

    In the mode of Tolkein, Ishiguro gives a fantasy set in ancient England. Complete with knights, warriors, monsters, ogres and a dragon the story weaves around 2 elderly Britons who set off on a strange journey. Beautifully written about a strange and eerie place, this book has explores themes relevant to today’s world. Memory and it’s role in perpetuating hatred between groups and individuals runs through the story. Brilliant.

    What a long time to get to it

    It wasnt until 50 % through that i started to get some interest. And it wasnt until the lat paragraphs that i felt anything.

    Interesting read

    I liked the pacing of this story. I liked how i started out knowing next to nothing but slowly found where and when I was in the landscape of legend and history. It would not surprize me if the author had a small kendo background or experience or perhaps some other martial art of the sword; the fighting was described in a way I am unaccustomed to reading and thinking about fighting.
