The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro is a magical novel which took me by surprise. I loved every minute of reading it.
The story transports us to a time soon after the reign of the legendary King Arthur. It is a time when an uneasy peace reigns in England between the Saxons and the Britons. As an elderly man and his wife set off on a quest to reunite with their long-lost son, they encounter other medieval people on quests of their own; all of whom are struggling to recover lost memories and people from their past. As the story unfolds, we discover the surprising cause behind “the mist”.
I think this is an amazing book by an incredible author. It is not a fairy tale, but rather a thought-provoking novel about life, love and human emotions. I truly hope you will read it.
