From the bestselling and Booker Prize winning author of Never Let me Go and The Remains of the Day, a stunning new novel - his first since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature - that asks, what does it mean to love? A thrilling feat of world-building, a novel of exquisite tenderness and impeccable restraint, Klara and the Sun is a magnificent achievement, and an international literary event.
This was a thought-provoking read that made me think of where our society is leading towards in terms of technological advancement, and the repercussions of it. It brings up a lot of relevant issues pertaining to our reliant on technology and the power Big Tech currently has over us. Definitely a great read, but also an emotionally heavy (and exhausting) one.
As expected, a profound and beautiful work from one of my favourite authors.I don't think you can read anything of his without feeling changed even in some small way. I can't really do it justice with a long and rambling review and I generally think it's best to go into novels like this without a detailed plot outline. Discover it for yourself, you'll be glad you did.
First of all, I am pretty bad in literature but I enjoyed this book very much. Its basically a story about getting a pet with AI capability. Its a fresh perspective on the argument of AI, it doesnt really touch too much on mainstream debate of AI taking over human world. Rather, its focusing on soul searching aspect.
Klara and the Sun
Clara and the Sun" by Kazuo Ishiguro is delicately written only from the point of view and sensitivity of the first person "I" of the AF (Artificial Fried), the girl Clara. There are no objective expressions or explanations, so the reader has to use their own imagination to digest and visualize the world view. As in "Never Let Me Go". It's a great novel!
