    Description

    The sun always has ways to reach us.

    From her place in the store, Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.

    In Klara and the Sun, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

    Good, but lacks punch.

    Excellent, clear narrator who captured the AI personality perfectly. The book was engaging but lacked punch throughout, always promising a twist but never delivering a satisfying one.

    Don't miss listening to this book!

    Perfection. If you love books about robots and AI, this is next level. Masterfully written, deep, rich characters and insightful literary depth.

    Heartwarming tale of artificial intelligence

    Surprising story of friendship, loyalty and love. It makes you think of honesty in relationships and whether it’s better to have human hypocrisy or artificial commitment. It is great reading for young adults as it is about the development of personality throughout the teenage years. Would have like to know more about the society’s setup that was on the background and not described in detail but had some interesting twists in it.

    A really good read

    I can really recommend this book. A beautiful and sometimes sad story with many details and humanly warm wisdom.

    Much to consider

    As the risk of sounding cynical, I found the 'what it is to love' theme of only secondary interest here. I much preferred the AI implications, especially the known unknowns of how an AI 'reasons'. Even Klara's novel perspective of parceling stimuli into overlapping boxes was a useful reminder of how humans default to the human experience of awareness as the universal gold standard (spare a thought for the animal kingdom). Not wild about the narrator though - a more neutral accent would have suited me better... Juliet Stevenson I'm thinking would have been spot on.

    A magnificent novel

    A wonderful work of imagination, close observation, and lovely writing. There’s an underlying sadness to the work, delicate and haunting. Kazuo Ishiguro at the top of his powers — my favourite living writer.

    The performance is worthy of the novel.

    Interesting but undeveloped.

    The narrator was incapable of reading with an English accent, which was required for two of the characters. Otherwise she did a good job. The story was underdeveloped, in my opinion. Many critics disagree with me and one even found it a “masterpiece”. I did recommend it to my friend because it raises interesting issues rather than delve into them.

    Underwhelming

    Interesting ideas and thoughts, but nothing was ever done with them. The story continued on its merry way and no one had to really make any sort of difficult decisions.
