Description

England, 1930s: Christopher Banks has become the country's most celebrated detective, his cases the talk of London society. Yet one unsolved crime has always haunted him: the mysterious disappearance of his parents, in old Shanghai, when he was a small boy. 

Moving between London and Shanghai of the interwar years, When We Were Orphans is a remarkable story of memory, intrigue and the need to return.

Nostalgic and alluring!

If you could sum up When We Were Orphans in three words, what would they be?

Nostalgic, journey, contentment.

What did you like best about this story?

The depth in the Narrator. The narrative, shows that he is merely, human. confused, most and sometimes wrong.

What does Michael Maloney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His use of accents and dialects develops the other characters but mostly his voice as Christopher shows a vulnerability and arrogance, which helps in developing his character.

If you could take any character from When We Were Orphans out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Jenny, the other orphan, who plays a minor yet vital role.

Any additional comments?

This book is a must read or listen. It is exquisitely written. Kazou Ishiguro is becoming one of my favourite authors.
