In many ways, that room is the most pleasant in the house, with a splendid view across the orchard. But it had been Keiko's fanatically guarded domain for so long, a strange spell seemed to linger there even now, six years after she had left it - a spell that had grown all the stronger now that Keiko was dead.


(Pg 53, A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro)

  7. Nymeth Says:

    Oooh - I haven't read this one before, but I want to because a) I love Ishiguro and b) It's a favourite of Sarah Waters', so it can't not be good :P


  8. Iliana Says:

    I'm a big, big fan of Ishiguro but this is one I haven't read. So far my favorite of his is The Remains of the Day. One of the few books I've actually re-read! :) Hope you enjoy this one.


  9. So tempting! I will have to look for this book.
