I just got through page 100 and already, a lot of tears were already shed. Not that it’s overly dramatic, it just touched me to the core. I don’t think the reader can be left emotionally unscathed after reading this magnificent novel. All day at work, I’ve been dreaming of collecting Ishiguro’s novel. I am now in possession of Mitchell’s novels, Saramago’s novels are quite tough to complete. What about Ishiguro? Hmm. If ever I get around to completing his works, I’d like them to be the under one publisher. Which means I might need to buy second copies of this and Never Let Me Go. Argh. Talk about being an OC, huh?
