Interesting First-Person Narrative
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand better Ishiguro's world. This book explores the difficulty of evaluating the past (especially one's own past) because of the complexity of human motivation and the social and historical forces influencing the decisions people make.
There are similar themes in The Remains of the Day, especially the theme of self-delusion.
