Klara and The Sun is a one-note novel
Reviewed in Canada on July 4, 2021
Oh, oh! I'm in the position of opposing the popularity of Ishiguro's novel Klara. I had SO looked forward to reading it! But it falls short of my expectations. I'm caught up in the beginning and immediately LIKE the narrator who is a robot, but as the novel progresses, I am more and more bored by the extensive dialogue. I skimmed the last 1/4 of the novel. I am a devoted re-reader of complex novels, but not this too-simple one! I'd NEVER read it again.
