A great escape.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Unconsoled (Paperback)
It's a tremendously comforting and rewarding read. In the same way people feel enlightened looking at a painting by Dali, Ishiguro opens doors invitingly. He makes us smile, although sometimes we may not be quite sure why. The protagonist, who is travelling (body and mind) is the only real constant in the book, everything else changes constantly. Ishiguro reflects a really bleak modern world where people, although interacting in society and physical environment constantly, are very self-orientated, introspective and discovering that they are 'free' to think but alone with their thoughts. The conscious mind bleeds into unconciousness seamlessly in this book. It's beautifully done.
