The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence.… (mais)

I think this is definitely Ishiguro's most readable book I've read, I had none of my complaints about the other ones (relying on gimmicks about memory, though I suppose Remains does a little it doesn't feel forced) and it made me understand why he deserved the Nobel Prize. I haven't seen the movie yet, and I'm really looking forward to it, but I'm also glad that I didn't watch it before reading the book because everything unfolded so well in this and I honestly can't imagine how a movie could tell a story this subtle and subjective.

Towards the start this book seems like a character study, but in actuality it's a really carefully constructed nonlinear narrative so I was glad that the story went somewhere instead of him just reminiscing. The pastoral frame story of a road trip gave the novel a very leisurely pace even though it's pretty brisk, it was very relaxing to read but it didn't put me to sleep at all! Obviously the book is mostly character-driven, by Stevens, who's super in denial about everything. The reason this is such a masterpiece is because of how believable his voice is... it was Nabokovian levels of unreliable-narrator (think Pale Fire). I am pretty familiar with Ishiguro so I caught on really soon that Stevens was in denial and super repressed the whole time, and if anything it felt too obvious. I didn't think the book lacked subtlety, except for the conversation with the guy at the end which was really on the nose. A lot of the political atmosphere and class commentary of the book reminded me of Zweig's Post Office Girl... The whole time, I was thinking "is this book supposed to be funny?" because there's some serious irony going on the whole time... so even though this is known as quite a sad story, it's honestly really funny, and surprisingly romantic.

Beautifully written, poignant modern classic. Deep. ( )

Inglaterra, julio de 1956. Stevens, el narrador, durante treinta años ha sido mayordomo de Darlington Hall. Lord Darlington murió hace tres años, y la propiedad pertenece ahora a un norteamericano. El mayordomo, por primera vez en su vida, hará un viaje. Su nuevo patrón regresará por unas semanas a su país, y le ha ofrecido al mayordomo su coche que fuera de Lord Darlington para que disfrute de unas vacaciones.

Poignant and moving story of an aging English butler reflecting on his career and life. Writing in a very conversational style, Ishiguro draws the reader in quickly and, despite the rather dry subject matter, creates a page-turner of the highest order. Highly recommended. ( )

I found this very disturbing, although I was reading it to get inside the mind of a devoted servant. Told from the point of view of the butler himself, it was harrowing to go through is mind, his justifications, his devotion to his employer, his blindness to the emotions of other humans. ( )

We can work out the date of Stevens's expedition ... Ominous dates. ... the Suez crisis dominated British current affairs. ... Stevens is not returning to a golden evening ... there are no remains -- except in the sense of `corpse'.

The Remains of the Day is too much a roman à thèse, and a judgmental one besides. Compared to his astounding narrative sophistication, Ishiguro's message seems quite banal: Be less Japanese, less bent on dignity, less false to yourself and others, less restrained and controlled. The irony is that it is precisely Ishiguro's beautiful restraint and control that one admires, and, in the case of the last novel [The Remains of the Day], his nerve in setting up such a high-wire act for himself.

Kazuo Ishiguro's tonal control of Stevens' repressive yet continually reverberating first-person voice is dazzling. So is his ability to present the butler from every point on the compass: with affectionate humor, tart irony, criticism, compassion and full understanding. It is remarkable, too, that as we read along in this strikingly original novel, we continue to think not only about the old butler, but about his country, its politics and its culture.

The English landscape at its finest—such as I saw this morning—possesses a quality that the landscapes of other nations, however more superficially dramatic, inevitably fail to possess. It is, I believe, a quality that will mark out the English landscape to any objective observer as the most deeply satisfying in the world, and this quality is probably best summed up by the term 'greatness.' And yet what precisely is this greatness? I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it.
