“This story is set in ancient England back when the Saxons and the Britons were battling it out and has the mythological feel of a fairy tale, so it was nice to have it read to me. Themes: memory, forgiveness, what makes a marriage work. I loved the characters and was anxious nothing bad would happen to them. It's definitely unlike anything I've ever read.”

The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize–winning The Remains of the Day
The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased.
The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards—some strange and other-worldly—but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another.
Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro’s first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.
