"An extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day. "You've long set your heart against it, Axl, I know. But it's time now to think on it anew. There's a journey we must go on, and no more delay. . ." The Buried Giant begins as a couple set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen in years.

I’m very interested in the divisiveness around The Buried Giant. To each their own, but I can’t imagine not being profoundly moved by this novel.

Ishiguro constructs his world with such care, a very big and wild world, but always hemmed in by mist, by the perceptions and fears and knowledge of the characters. The five main characters: the old Briton husband and wife, the Saxon traveling warrior and the troubled Saxon boy, and the ancient Arthurian Knight, are all gradually written so well and fully, and what isn’t written out is suggested.

Yes the story inches along rather than galloped, and everyone speaks in a slow and formal way, and there is a lot of lingering and repetition and discussion. But, like... in a good way. This is a book about old couples, and old knights, and old dragons, and old quarrels, and old memories. And other things, too, but mostly old things. I can see being disappointed if you were looking forward to great battles and fast-paced adventures. But mostly the story just moves slowly and steadily on, like Axl and Beatrice, sometimes diverting or wandering, but coming always back towards its inevitable final question.

My one quibble was I wish Ishiguro hadn’t mentioned the titular buried giant again near the end of the book, seemingly to clarify the symbolism in case you didn’t catch it. He left so much subtle and for the reader to interpret on their own, so even though it wasn’t really handhold-y, in contrast it still made it feel like he didn’t trust us with that one.

But overall, a phenomenal book. This was my second read of it, and I’m sure I’ll read it again and again. ( )

I read this after The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go.
It wasn't the same. I gave it three stars originally, but then I had the opportunity to read it again with a bit more context and intention when I took my first college class, Old English Re-Imagined, which centered on Anglo-Saxon life & literature. ( )

This story would probably be quite impactful as a film, but it didn't really resonate with me in book form. That said, the visual imagery was rich throughout much of the book. Overall this is not a novel I would rank among Ishiguro's best, but maybe I don't know enough Arthurian lore to fully appreciate it ( )

What a challenge it's proving to rate this book. Did I enjoy this read? I'm not quite sure. Would I recommend it? I can't say that I would. Do I think this is a "good" book? Yes, strangely, I think that I do.

I guess what this adds up to is that it's been a long time since a book has confounded me this much with understanding my own feelings about it, and that if part of literature's aim is to make you think about what you've read, Ishiguro hit the mark here.

I felt a whole lot of nothing while reading this. I didn't care about the characters or the story, which isn't necessary for me if the writing itself is interesting, but it wasn't. So on a story level and a technical level, I was leaning towards DNFing, which I don't often do. I felt held at arm's reach from engaging with the book in any meaningful way.

And then I somehow found myself at the end. It's not as if the ending is revelatory; it's fairly obvious what the story is building to, but the way that the last chapter unfolded, including the change in voice and tone, really brought everything together and turned a rather blasé tale into something complex and nuanced. How much of the inaccessibility of this tale is a result of deliberate planning? Are we readers kept at a distance from the narrative by the same mist that plagues the land?

I don't know if it was an intentional choice or a happy accident for our author. I don't know if it matters. I do know that I will be thinking about this book for a long time to come.

Only managed to focus on beginning and end....just found no interest or understanding in it ....must be far " above" me....giving an extra point for something more than one reviewer took a point off for...the way the old man called his wife Princess....rather sweet.
Even the lovely David Suchet's reading hardly helped .... ( )

Fantasy and historical fiction and myth here run together with the Matter of Britain, in a novel that’s easy to admire, to respect and to enjoy, but difficult to love. Still, “The Buried Giant” does what important books do: It remains in the mind long after it has been read, refusing to leave, forcing one to turn it over and over. On a second reading, and on a third, its characters and events and motives are easier to understand, but even so, it guards its secrets and its world close.

There are authors who write in tidy, classifiable, immediately recognizable genres — Jane Austen, Alexandre Dumas, William Faulkner, Gabriel García Márquez, to name a few — and then there are those who adamantly do not. These others can surprise us with story lines and settings that are guises to be worn and shucked after the telling. Masters of reinvention, they slip from era to era, land to land, changing idioms, adapting styles, heedless of labels. They are creatures of a nonsectarian world, comfortable in many skins, channelers of languages. What interests them above all in their invented universes is the abiding human heart.

Kazuo Ishiguro is such a writer.
