The first half was intriguing, the second half did not deliver. I was expected a story like that of the movie Ich bin dein Mensch, which is also about a social robot like Klara. I should have loved this book, as it is science fiction, slightly distopian and about robotics.
We get very little information about Josie and her mother, and the society they live in. Normally that's the best part of distopian fiction for me, but Ishiguro only vaguely alludes to the outside world in the novel. Judging from the reviews, other readers find this mysterious and intriguing, but I find it frustrating.
Just like Never Let Me Go (the other Ishiguro novel I've read) this book never really grasped me. Now that I've finished this book, I find that it made me feel the same things as Never let me go, which is not surprising given that it has the same themes: sadness, longing for something that is not within reach, being an outsider, resignation, ignorance/naivety/not (fully) understanding the world around you, sacrificing your own happiness in caring for someone else, and not being the decision-maker in your own life. I can see why people find it a beautiful book, but to me this story is a bit like a desert landscape: sure, it's beautiful, but it's also desolate and alien. I wonder if it's due to Ishiguro's Japanese background, because it reminded me of the books by Haruki Murakami. ( )

Clear simple prose which is nevertheless unsettling because you don't quite know what the full context is - yes its an Ishiguro novel. I love how he writes but I'm always left a bit confused and wondering what I missed. This tale of an Artificial Friend (Klara) and its relationship with the girl it belongs to is quite moving. We know its a robot but yet believe in its emotional connection to its owner. We sometimes understand more than the robot and find Klara's naivety amusing, but othertimes are confused as to exactly how things are organised in this recognisable but futuristic world. ( )

As expected, Ishiguro has produced yet another magical masterpiece. Without giving too much away,
he examines the importance and meaning of love, mostly from the perspective of an AI android. It is all at once chilling, heartwarming, exciting, and most importantly, highly thought provoking. He is becoming one of my very favorite contemporary authors. A must read to say the least.

Fascinating narrator, an Artificial Friend (AF) named Klara who distinguishes herself with the AF store Manager by her powers of observation and insight. She is chosen by fourteen-year-old Josie to live in their remote house outside the city and serve as a companion but more than that. She is part chaperone for Josie and her next-door neighbor, Rick, who are lifelong friends with a plan to stay together forever. But beneath this vaguely imminent future, A.I. has "substituted" (i.e., replaced and displaced) elite workers. References to clothing or property as being "high rank" suggests a caste system, as does the notion of privileged children being "lifted" through some sort of genetic tinkering to maximize their potential to succeed. We get a glimpse of the anger many people have about A.I., subjecting Klara to an outburst from a stranger, as they are simply standing outside a theater. The woman says: “First they take the jobs. Now they take the seats at the theater?” An echo of complaints about immigrants from some quarters. Without giving away the plot, the story itself was as fascinating as its narrator. ( )

In de licht dystopische roman voert Ishiguro een balanseer act uit op de rand van kitch. Hij slaagt er echter op een uitzonderlijke wijze in om in evenwicht te blijven. Klara en de zon is een zeer geslaagde, enigszins verontrustende en gelaagde nieuwe roman van de meesterverteller en Nobelprijswinnaar…lees verder>
 
Most of Ishiguro’s novels are slender books that are more complicated than they at first seem; Klara and the Sun is by contrast more simple than it seems, less novel than parable. Though much is familiar here—the restrained language, the under-stated first-person narration—the new book is much more overt than its predecessors about its concerns.... Ishiguro is unsentimental—indeed, one of the prevailing criticisms of him is that he’s too cold, his novels overly designed, his language detached. (Some of the worst writing on Ishiguro ascribes this to his being Japanese, overlooking that he’s lived in England since he was a small child.) In most hands, this business of the mother-figure who sacrifices all for a child would be mawkish. Here it barely seems like metaphor. Every parent has at times felt like an automaton. Every parent has pleaded with some deity for the safety of their child. Every parent is aware of their own, inevitable obsolescence. And no child can offer more than Josie’s glib goodbye, though perhaps Ishiguro wants to; the book is dedicated to his mother.

It explores many of the subjects that fill our news feeds, from artificial intelligence to meritocracy. Yet its real political power lies not in these topical references but in its quietly eviscerating treatment of love. Through Klara, Josie, and Chrissie, Ishiguro shows how care is often intertwined with exploitation, how love is often grounded in selfishness ... this book focuses on those we exploit primarily for emotional labor and care work—a timely commentary during a pandemic in which the essential workers who care for us are too often treated as disposable ... If Never Let Me Go demonstrates how easily we can exploit those we never have to see, Klara and the Sun shows how easily we can exploit even those we claim to love ... a story as much about our own world as about any imagined future, and it reminds us that violence and dehumanization can also come wrapped in the guise of love.

... the real power of this novel: Ishiguro’s ability to embrace a whole web of moral concerns about how we navigate technological advancements, environmental degradation and economic challenges even while dealing with the unalterable fact that we still die.... tales of sensitive robots determined to help us survive our self-destructive impulses are not unknown in the canon of science fiction. But Ishiguro brings to this poignant subgenre a uniquely elegant style and flawless control of dramatic pacing. In his telling, Klara’s self-abnegation feels both ennobling and tragic.

Critics often note Ishiguro’s use of dramatic irony, which allows readers to know more than his characters do. And it can seem as if his narrators fail to grasp the enormity of the injustices whose details they so meticulously describe. But I don’t believe that his characters suffer from limited consciousness. I think they have dignity. Confronted by a complete indifference to their humanity, they choose stoicism over complaint. We think we grieve for them more than they grieve for themselves, but more heartbreaking is the possibility that they’re not sure we differ enough from their overlords to understand their true sorrow. And maybe we don’t, and maybe we can’t. Maybe that’s the real irony, the way Ishiguro sticks in the shiv.... In Klara and the Sun, Ishiguro leaves us suspended over a rift in the presumptive order of things. Whose consciousness is limited, ours or a machine’s? Whose love is more true? If we ever do give robots the power to feel the beauty and anguish of the world we bring them into, will they murder us for it or lead us toward the light?

We're both of us sentimental. We can't help it. Our generation still carry the old feelings. A part of us refuses to let go. The part that wants to keep believing there's something unreachable inside each of us. Something that's unique and won't transfer. But there's nothig like that, we know that now. (68%)
Mr Capaldi believed there was nothing special inside Josie that couldn’t be continued. He told the Mother he’d searched and searched and found nothing like that. But I believe now he was searching in the wrong place. There was something very special, but it wasn’t inside Josie. It was inside those who loved her. (98%)
