    Ishiguro doesn't dissapoint and in this pandemic (end?) era where we are living remotely more than ever before, an a.f. is not a distant idea at all. This book is timely and futuristic at the same time.
  • (4/5)
    An interesting story, not my usual genre. Disliked the majority of the characters and I have been left with many questions. What happened to Helen ? The original housekeeper? Did the unrest develop further so that AFs stopped being manufacturered. Still not totally sure what ‘lifting’ meant but Josie did eventually survive this process. Klara herself, I assume just remained in the dumping ground until she finally ‘died’. As an AF she seemed to have been programmed to have assumed many human emotions ,her discard by the family felt immoral and heartless but then they all came across as being selfish individuals .

    Lovely constructed book. It slightly reminded me of Never Let me Go except that Klara is a machine so it didn't feel so sad and also I think I enjoyed this book more. Clearly the author knows how to reach inside of us and gather our emotions without us realizing it and he can do what he will with it by the use of words.

    La variedad de libros con la que cuenta y la manera tan sencilla de poder acceder a ellos.
  • (5/5)
    Very good narrator, and Ishuiguro's gorgeous mix of sifi and human feeling
  • (3/5)
    Weird but oddly entertaining and deep. The narrator does a good job. Recommended!
