Not what it seems

For once I actually agree with a Kakutani review. Her comments on Isiguro’s new novel mirror my own, she’s just able to articulate them. Many have seemed to object to the ‘sci-fi’ aspect of the book, but I barely thought of it as traditional sci-fi. And other’s complain about the big ‘reveal’, but I thought he kept parcelling the clues throughout the book. You know from the first chapter something isn’t normal. It’s really a lovely, wonderful book.
