One of the best books I've read. Ishiguro's literary finesse is impressive as he pulls the reader delicately into the story only to surprise you with what he's really up to. A masterful look at childhood and character turns into something much larger, a subtle and skillful look at how social values become hopelessly compromised. A love story that engages us with a coming moral dilemma.
You have to like a meditative, introspective literary narrator but this book is eloquent, with many perfect moments to it. True, the reader's attempt at women's voices is pretty bad, but I forgave that because I was so caught up in the book.
