Outstanding!   Such a rich combination of fantasy, Arthurian legend and modern outrageousness.  I loved every word..

— Margie - Books Inc. in SF

“Every night a mist covers the land and begets forgetfullness while an elderly husband and wife begin an odyessy through a land full of magic and mystery, where Arthurian legends still live.” 

— Karen at Books Inc. in Palo Alto

"Beguiling tale of dark age England – stock characters are made living breathing – real”

“Ishiguro's new novel is a work of wonder, transport, and beauty. A recurrent theme in his earlier books, always shown with great originality, is the matter of what happens after we have lost our way. In The Buried Giant, Ishiguro explores losing direction, memory, and certainty, as the primary characters cling to remnants of codes of behavior and belief. Which is the way through the forest? Where might our son be? And where is the dragon, and who shall seek to slay her? Set in the time just after King Arthur's reign, Ishiguro's tale, with striking, fable-like rhythm and narrative, shows how losing and finding our way runs long, deep, and to the core of things.”
— Rick Simonson, The Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA
