A review by sweetwitches
Klara and the Sun, by Kazuo Ishiguro

reflective slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


i wanted to like this book a lot and while i didn't hate it at all, i found it a little underwhelming. i thought there was a lot more that could have happened with this premise. i do think klara is an endearing character and narrator, though descriptions felt a little dull at times (she is an AF after all), i found myself rooting for her. it's a cute little story haha.
