The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day.

The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. The Buried Giant 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.

Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.

Recipient of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature, British author Kazuo Ishiguro’s writing career began with 1982’s acclaimed novel A Pale View of Hills. His third book, 1989’s The Remains of the Day, firmly secured his reputation, winning the Booker Prize. His other acclaimed books include: When We Were OrphansAn Artist of the Floating WorldNever Let Me Go and The Buried Giant

“Good writing, average plot”

The characters are interesting and the descriptive writing in places is powerful.

The plot and story let the book down, it ambles slowly along without much of a conclusion

“Left me underwhelmed”

There's no denying Ishiguro is a very talented writer and this book has some beautifully written sections. The story is lacking though. It never felt like it delivered on the world it created. Tales of... More
