The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro


"You've long set your heart against it, Axl, I know. But it's time now to think on it anew. There's a journey we must go on, and no more delay..."

The Buried Giant begins as a couple set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen in years.

Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in nearly a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge, and war.

This is a very interesting book at first you would think that it's a fantasy novel but you would be wrong. The fantasy elements in this novel are the beliefs of the people of the time, who believe the simplest thing to be the work of demons and spirits and if someone from today were to look at the same item they would be able to explain it simply and scientifically. This book is on the same lines as the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and is about a couple on a journey and the many things they discover about the world and about themselves 5/5 diamonds
