by Kazuo Ishiguro
Kazuo Ishiguro is better known for his book, The Remains of the Day which was made into a Hollywood movie. Instead of starting out with that book, I decided to start off reading his works with A Pale View of Hills because it centers on a Japanese woman. She is living in England and is struggling after the suicide of her daughter. It takes place right aftter World War II.
I hope to get to this book soon. Maybe as soon as this month. The whole book sounds very haunting and while it may not be his most popular book, I’m hoping his writing style will still prove to be excellent.
