Waterstones Says

Told in subtle, devastating prose, Nobel Laureate Kazuo Ishiguro’s seventh novel follows a mysterious voyage through mythical, post-Arthurian England plagued by war, dragons and strange, perpetual mist. With enduring questions about memory, love, revenge and forgiveness at its core, The Buried Giant is, above all, a journey into the human heart.

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.

“Unlike any other book I've ever read”

I can understand why some reviewers didn't like this, and yet . . .

The Buried Giant is essentially a multiple genre mixture, the genres being sword and sorcery, fable and quest. It's true that there are... More

“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
