    The Remains of the Day is a profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading, insular world in postwar England. At the end of his three decades of service at Darlington Hall, Stevens embarks on a country drive, during which he looks back over his career to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving "a great gentleman". But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness" and graver doubts about his own faith in the man he served.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't believe the novelist who wrote this also wrote Never Let Me Go. I kept listening and waiting to ascertain if I was missing something ... But it continued to be mind-numbingly boring.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Simon Prebble?

    The performance was fine but it certainly couldn't make up for the disappointing novel.
