Publisher's Summary

The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at last 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 otherworldly--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.

So disappointing

I found this tedious, repetitive and obscure. A case of the emperor's new clothes - no-one else could get this book published. What a pity.

This book is just wonderful. One needs to pretend you are being read a fairytale and let it seep into your soul. Let go of any expectations and allowed the words wash over you. Brilliant narration.
