9780571315031: The Buried Giant

'There's a journey we must go on, and no more delay...'

The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day

The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least 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 other-worldly - 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.

'Kazuo Ishiguro is an original and remarkable genius.' The New York Times

'A master craftsman.' Margaret Atwood, Slate

'The best and most original writer of his generation.' Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday

Recensione:

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 ... Ishiguro is not afraid to tackle huge, personal themes, nor to use myths, history and the fantastic as the tools to do it. The Buried Giant is an exceptional novel. (Neil Gaiman New York Times)

What Ishiguro has delivered, after much labour, is a beautiful fable with a hard message at its core ... there won't, I suspect, be a more important work of fiction published this year than The Buried Giant. And take note, Peter Jackson. Ishiguro's fiction makes wonderful films. (John Sutherland The Times)

Ishiguro is, as ever, very readable ... the novel is moving and strangely resonant. I suspect him of being wise, of having a vision that subtly and politely exceeds that of ordinary people ... Ultimately the novel achieves a tragic synthesis between its various parts that ... reverberates powerfully in the mind. (Theo Tait Sunday Times)

The Buried Giant ... reveals itself as a work not just of great originality but peculiar, even hypnotic, beauty: such a late, great extension to Arthurian literature. (David Sexton Evening Standard)

The world's greatest living novelist Kazuo Ishiguro has a new book out. It is a masterpiece. ( David Walliams)

A novelist of unparalleled distinction. The style is elegant, sparse, non-archaic and, as with Ishiguro's other works, it accumulates as you progress, until you are mesmerised by the agony of his characters. It is a bold, sorrowful, brilliant and unyielding book. The journey might be imaginary, yet it is existentially real, and that is its great beauty and strength. (Joanna Kavenna Prospect)

The prose, as in many of Ishiguro's novels, is lapidary and beguiling, suggestive of secrets to be disclosed. [F]or Ishiguro, our poet laureate of loss, the mercies of forgetfulness hold the greater fascination ... The Buried Giant is ultimately a story about long love and making terms with oblivion. It is an eerie hybrid: a children's fable about old age. In Ishiguro's novel, as in life, love conquers all - all, that is, but death. (Nathaniel Rich Atlantic)

The writing is at times lush and thrilling, rolling the gothic, fantastical, political, and philosophical into one. In its best moments, the fantasy elements blend with the exploration of memory, identity, and power to significant effect. The Buried Giant may feel very different from Ishiguro's previous works, but the concerns that lie at its heart have preoccupied him his entire career. (Elaine Teng New Republic)

Ishiguro was described as ' a master craftsman' by Margaret Atwood, and he is every inch that throughout this book, from the self-confidence and certainty of the slow start, through to the final, profound and very moving, pages. (Emily Hourican Irish Independent)

Ishiguro is too subtle and complex a novelist to rest content with such a message. The memory loss that may serve a troubled people as a blessing cannot help but threaten the individual with the dissolution of his or her self. At the heart of The Buried Giant, luminous amid all the dragons and warring knights, is a deeply affecting portrait of marital love, and of how even the most precious memories can end up vulnerable. (Tom Holland Guardian)

Ishiguro's prose is as spare, restrained, understated and formal as always, but beneath lie deep emotions...The ending, as so often with this writer, is all the more devastating for being so controlled. ( Independent)

His new novel is full of haunting images: the stagnant puddles on the faded tiles of a once-grand, now ruined Roman villa; a wounded bat found in a cave, a hole through its ribs "as though someone had taken a bite from a crisp apple", to the recurring figure of the boatman who bookends this weird, compelling tale. No doubt this book will divide opinion powerfully: but it provokes strong emotions-and lingers long in the mind. ( Economist)

The Buried Giant is Game of Thrones with a conscience, The Sword in the Stone for the age of the trauma industry, a beautiful, heartbreaking book about the duty to remember and the urge to forget. (Alex Preston The Observer)

But the book heads towards something magnificent and heartbreaking, not a mere plot point but a chess move that leaves cracks in the board itself. ( The Telegraph)

The Buried Giant is absolutely characteristic, moving and unsettling, in the way of all Ishiguro's fiction. It's less a case of " Game of Thrones meets The Hobbit", as one wag has dubbed it, than a novel of imaginative daring that, in its subtleties of tone, mood and reflection, could be the work of no other writer. (Jason Cowley Financial Times)
