I love that this book asks you to figure out so much about the world around it. I love the non-human narrator. This is slow paced, melancholy in the best sort of way, and just lovely to read. I'm left with so many feelings after finishing it. ( )

The narrator of this book is a robot, an artificial friend, who observes human interactions and learns from them. The text is simply written in the naive childlike voice of Klara. It initially feels like a simple book but Klara’s observations about humans, love and friendship are more insightful than the humans around her. The book was written before the pandemic but elements of the story are strikingly prophetic of the world of lockdowns and remote learning. The dystopian world is clearly divided between high ranking people with access to education and those who are not. This also reflects our world today. ( )

During an online literary event this Spring, the author said that his hope is that the stories he tells will be remembered by his readers well into the future, 20 years or more. Certainly, "Remains of The Day" and "Never Let Me Go" can claim success by that criteria. So too, I believe, "Klara & The Sun" will be remembered. It felt prophetic, much as did "1984". In a dystopia future, children will resort to "AFs", or Artificial Friends. This story is told in the first person narrative from the perspective of the AF, Klara. A bittersweet coming of age in the future, where children are either "lifted" or "unlifted" , genetically modified for success or not. The plot is deceptively simple. Barely below the surface the reader must grapple with seemingly inevitable social status issues, with the meaning of hope, and with whether humans can transcend death, or whether they should. A powerful, provocative story.....not unusual from Mr. Ishiguro! A must read! ( )

perhaps the english version is a translation, or something along those lines, but the dialogue feels rigid, at times forces, and don't really help with the character development. Josie and Rick don't sound like 14 year old kids -- the language that comes out of their mouths feels much like what's coming out of the Mother and other adults' mouths.

A gaping hole in the plot that I can't wrap my mind around is Klara's unwillingness to discuss her thoughts about the sun and her plea for him to heal josie. Everyone just seems to go along with klara as if she knows better than they do, but it's frustrating because these are the same skeptical and cunning humans who are far from blissfully ignorant. ( )

The problem is me. I just don't gel with Kazuo Ishiguro's books. This is the fourth for me. I feel he tries to make me cry, but when I can SENSE that he is trying to make me cry, that doesn't make me cry. Written matter of fact but also full of details that seem unnecessary, for example: "The room was more narrow than the bedroom at home, but the ceiling was higher". I can understand this is written in an awkward way, being from the perspective of an Artificial Friend AI robot that is tasked to live with a sick teenager, to keep an eye on her and keep her company... and possibly something more than that. I wouldn't mind if the story from an AI was even MORE awkward. Give me full robot. But it's not only the awkward writing style. It's the awkward plot, characters, and even the odd dialogue. Even calling phones/tablets or whatever the heck they actually were "oblongs". Why? I was waiting for a surprise ending of the book to say this had all been the imagination of a robot who was writing a book. Not the case. Plenty of writers in the sea for me though. I have given Ishiguro a fair chance and he will always have his fans! ( )

In de licht dystopische roman voert Ishiguro een balanseer act uit op de rand van kitch. Hij slaagt er echter op een uitzonderlijke wijze in om in evenwicht te blijven. Klara en de zon is een zeer geslaagde, enigszins verontrustende en gelaagde nieuwe roman van de meesterverteller en Nobelprijswinnaar…lees verder>
Most of Ishiguro’s novels are slender books that are more complicated than they at first seem; Klara and the Sun is by contrast more simple than it seems, less novel than parable. Though much is familiar here—the restrained language, the under-stated first-person narration—the new book is much more overt than its predecessors about its concerns.... Ishiguro is unsentimental—indeed, one of the prevailing criticisms of him is that he’s too cold, his novels overly designed, his language detached. (Some of the worst writing on Ishiguro ascribes this to his being Japanese, overlooking that he’s lived in England since he was a small child.) In most hands, this business of the mother-figure who sacrifices all for a child would be mawkish. Here it barely seems like metaphor. Every parent has at times felt like an automaton. Every parent has pleaded with some deity for the safety of their child. Every parent is aware of their own, inevitable obsolescence. And no child can offer more than Josie’s glib goodbye, though perhaps Ishiguro wants to; the book is dedicated to his mother.

It explores many of the subjects that fill our news feeds, from artificial intelligence to meritocracy. Yet its real political power lies not in these topical references but in its quietly eviscerating treatment of love. Through Klara, Josie, and Chrissie, Ishiguro shows how care is often intertwined with exploitation, how love is often grounded in selfishness ... this book focuses on those we exploit primarily for emotional labor and care work—a timely commentary during a pandemic in which the essential workers who care for us are too often treated as disposable ... If Never Let Me Go demonstrates how easily we can exploit those we never have to see, Klara and the Sun shows how easily we can exploit even those we claim to love ... a story as much about our own world as about any imagined future, and it reminds us that violence and dehumanization can also come wrapped in the guise of love.

... the real power of this novel: Ishiguro’s ability to embrace a whole web of moral concerns about how we navigate technological advancements, environmental degradation and economic challenges even while dealing with the unalterable fact that we still die.... tales of sensitive robots determined to help us survive our self-destructive impulses are not unknown in the canon of science fiction. But Ishiguro brings to this poignant subgenre a uniquely elegant style and flawless control of dramatic pacing. In his telling, Klara’s self-abnegation feels both ennobling and tragic.
Critics often note Ishiguro’s use of dramatic irony, which allows readers to know more than his characters do. And it can seem as if his narrators fail to grasp the enormity of the injustices whose details they so meticulously describe. But I don’t believe that his characters suffer from limited consciousness. I think they have dignity. Confronted by a complete indifference to their humanity, they choose stoicism over complaint. We think we grieve for them more than they grieve for themselves, but more heartbreaking is the possibility that they’re not sure we differ enough from their overlords to understand their true sorrow. And maybe we don’t, and maybe we can’t. Maybe that’s the real irony, the way Ishiguro sticks in the shiv.... In Klara and the Sun, Ishiguro leaves us suspended over a rift in the presumptive order of things. Whose consciousness is limited, ours or a machine’s? Whose love is more true? If we ever do give robots the power to feel the beauty and anguish of the world we bring them into, will they murder us for it or lead us toward the light?

Mr Capaldi believed there was nothing special inside Josie that couldn’t be continued. He told the Mother he’d searched and searched and found nothing like that. But I believe now he was searching in the wrong place. There was something very special, but it wasn’t inside Josie. It was inside those who loved her.
