Thoughts on my second reading of The Unconsoled.The novel's form is a veiled commentary on the text's processes and progress. Structurally, I believe it to be Ishiguro’s most daring novel so far. I think it must have been awfully hard to write, but there’s no smell of the lamp about it. The prose is lighter than air. It strikes me as Ishiguro's most Kafkaesque novel, especially in its use of dissociative states. Kafka's "In the Penal Colony" especially springs to mind.Its narrator, Mr Ryder, [...]

Having loved all his other novels, I finally got around to reading Ishiguro's The Unconsoled, and boy, was it strange and wonderful. I'd heard a vast array of opinions about this book, from "It is one of my top ten novels of all time" to "I loved it in a tense, uncomfortable way" to "it was an unmitigated train wreck." It's always intriguing to me when a book attracts such a wide variety of reactions, so I was looking forward to The Unconsoled for that reason. It also just so happens that I read [...]

Having woken up I'll now try to relate some of my impressions, but as you are aware, it is not an easy feat to hold on to the memory of a dream or to recall the detailsIt was the extraordinarily long conversation in the lift which alerted me to a time warp. Mr Ryder, possibly not only the world's greatest pianist, but perhaps even the greatest of the century has arrived at an unknown location to give a concert and attend various events. Except, that he has no idea what his schedule is. After a m [...]

I felt a tremendous sense of relief that I had finally completed Ishiguros’s The Unconsoled. I allowed myself to remember the experience of reading it, with its unusual memory-impaired narrator and the endless stream of absurdity and satire, and its improbable, dream-like narration. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed like it would make the perfect subject for a review. I worried a bit about the time it would take to make my feelings clear about the book, but after looking around [...]

The Unconsoled is almost certainly not a work for everybody. Or even, perhaps, for many. Ishiguro has crafted what is a pretty thoroughly boring, deeply rewarding novel. What at first appears to be a simple series of encounters between a renowned pianist—Mr. Ryder to you—and the inhabitants of a European city turns out to be anything but. Ryder is ostensibly meant to play part in the concert performance that will bring the city back from the realm of the culturally inconsequential and into t [...]

This is the novel I love the most. Although I don't play the piano and I am no concert artist of any kind, I have the impression that this narrative concerns me personally It feels written for me, almost custom-made It feels strangely familiar It deals with many of my issues but not directly, in an oblique way, the way I like it My hopes and agonies and regrets expressed as understatements, so british and so japanese at the same time I read it for the first time three years ago and I didn't want [...]

4.5 stars.The Unconsoled is at once humorous, touching, uncanny, and intricately, beautifully absurd. My words are failing me at present; the best I can do to describe this paralyzing, captivating reading experience is to say that my inability to wrench my eyes from the page, even when my mind was desperately claustrophobic and screaming for air, felt remarkably similar to the exquisitely unbearable compulsion which gripped the narrator in his childhood:“My ‘training sessions’ had come abo [...]

A long 500plus-page read but an easy one. You don't need to grab the dictionary when you read an Ishiguro but you have to pause, drop the book, every hour or two just to take a breather. An Ishiguro is a joy because it is like a silent but deep pond but if you love to shoot the rapids, it can be boring. What I am saying is that this book is not for everyone and judging from the reviews of my GR friends who have read this already, their ratings tend to go either very/quite high (5 or 4) or very/q [...]

Avunamayanlar, Kazuo Ishiguro'nun 95 yılında yazdığı, 560 sayfalık Kafkaesk bir bilinçaltı öyküsü. Müthiş incelikli bir başyapıt. Piyanist Mr. Ryder bir konser için adı bilinmeyen -Kafkaeskin kimliksizliğinden olsa gerek, bir Avrupa şehrine gider. Daha önce hiç gelmediği bu şehirde birkaç gün sonra çok önemli bir konser verecektir. Ama işler pek de beklediği gibi gitmez, biz okurların da beklediği gibi gitmez, Ryder daha önce hiç gitmediği yerlerde bulunduğunu [...]

The Unconsoled is an extraordinary work. It is close in themes and texture to Ishiguro’s equally extraordinary The Buried Giant, even though they were published at twenty years’ distance from one another, The Unconsoled in 1995, The Buried Giant in 2015. There are similarities in reception, as well. Both novels sparked wildly disparate responses in their readers, with some regarding them as masterpieces, others as unredeemed turkeys. James Wood’s original review of The Unconsoled in The Gu [...]

This is undoubtedly Ishiguro’s masterpiece! I’ve read several of his other books, but I always come away from them with a mixture of enthusiasm and reserve. The thing is, Ishiguro is a control freak. His books always seem to me to be so well planned out that there is no sense of discovery for the reader. It is almost like you are being shown a set of corridors that unfold very sure-handedly. It’s artfully done, but that is the problem: as a reader, I feel like he hides certain things from [...]

I read quite a bit of this during insomniac chunks in the middle of the night. In spite of the fact that much of what is happening to the narrator, Ryder, if it happened to me in real life would be intensely disturbing - things such as time and distance warping, people making constant and unreasonable demands on me, missing scheduled appointments, not recognizing people I knew well - I found the whole novel soothing, and actually hard to put down. Of the Ishiguro novels I've read, which is now m [...]

anahtar kelime : Nobel değil. hayır sadece o değil.Beni Asla Bırakma'yı seneler önce okudum, yeterince iyi anlamamıştım, aslında gereğinden önce okumuşum şimdi anlıyorum. Ishiguro'nun Nobel kazandığını duyduğumda hem sevindim hem de biraz burukluk yaşadım. Ödüller ve jüriler yazarları çoğunlukla hırpalayıp yoruyor bence. Elimde Günden Kalanlar olmasına rağmen fiziken yanımda değildi. Ben de karşıma çıkan ilk YKY kitabevinden aldım Avunamayanlar'ı karlı b [...]

Probably Ishiguro's more divisive book, I view this as his "Finnegans Wake". An experiment in plot. Yes, most of this novel makes absolutely no sense whatsoever but I actually enjoyed this. Oddly. While I was reading this lucid, dreamlike novel I felt compelled to continue. I don't know. I liked this but I can't exactly put my finger on the reason why. This novel is definitely not for everyone but I'm glad Ishiguro wrote it. It's interesting, let's say that.

As a person who compulsively makes lists and worries about crossing things off them, I read this book with a continual low-level anxiety. The main character, a pianist traveling in an unnamed European city, continually makes promises and takes on enormous responsibilities and then fails to follow through with them for various absurd and aggravating reasons. The style of the book is unique and unexpectedly engaging, but the experience of immersing yourself in the story is one of frustration. I se [...]

This has a similar feel to Crime & Punishment or Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas: dark, unsettling and vaguely insane. It is, though, a masterpiece, no more no less.It’s huge and yet I zipped through the thing in little over a week simply because it is compelling and very readable. The best I can come up with to describe this is it’s like reading the literary equivalent of a painting by Magritte – the ordinary, the everyday made surreal.The story is told in the first person and through [...]

İlk okuduğum Ishiguro eseri İlk başta bir kişi üzerinden (ki bir süre sonra tek taraflı bir konuşma halini alıyor) yürüyen ve sayfalarca süren o uzun konuşmalarda kimi zaman irtibat kopsa ve sıkıcı gelse de hikâye bir yerde ansızın çok ilginç bir ivme kazandı. O noktadan sonra akıcı bir hâl aldı.Önce hikâyenin kahramanı Ryder'ın hafızasını kaybettiğini düşündüm ancak bu bir yanılgıydı elbette. Hikâye, Ryder'ın yaşadığı ve belki farkında bile olmad [...]

Since Ishiguro is so concerned with how personal accountability intersects with personal and public delusionality, it only makes sense that he should have written a book in which a man approaches a public concert and keynote–and his family life–with the reckless, responsibility-free logic of dreams (stand up to give a speech and find yourself naked; turn into a pig; go backwards every time you step forwards, and why the hell not? And while you’re at it, neglect your child! Break every prom [...]

I hated this book almost as much as I hated myself for finishing it! If it hadn't been a library book I genuinely would have thrown it away. It infuriated me incessantly. I honestly expected to get the end and see the phrase 'and then he woke up and it was all a dream' but was even more irritated when this didn't even happen, such was the non-sensical dreamesque drivel that had occupied the previous 500 pages. The character's weak will and inability to do what he wants to do was beyond irritatin [...]

Basically every review I read of this book talks about how it's dream-like or even literally a dream recounted. That's not a very Ishiguro-like device. I feel like these reviewers must have very normal lives. Like nothing weird ever happens to them, like they never find themselves in situations where they are not in control, or where agency just doesn't seem to be particularly important. This book is as much a page from real life as any memoir. It's tough, this book. It doesn't come easy. It rea [...]

One of the ways you can tell that you're dreaming is a lack of continuity -- you turn a corner on a street and you're suddenly on a boat, or you're speaking to a man and he suddenly becomes an Alsatian, or you have lunch with someone who is absolutely, positively your brother but looks nothing at all like him. This book is like an extended dream sequence.The main character, a pianist, arrives in a city he has never visited to give a concert he doesn't remember agreeing to, and over the next few [...]

*Available from KOBOBOOKSAs many reviewers have pointed out, the novel has dream-like, meandering structure. Some readers found this off-putting and I can understand why. There are often lengthy repetitive passages of dialogue that are frankly simply trying and boring. If you decide to assay the novel, well, you have been warned. The thing is, I don’t have a problem with dream-like or meandering. I enjoyed Kafka on the Shore, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, and The Trial each of which have these q [...]

Bu yazı yazarın Günden Kalanlar, Beni Asla Bırakma ve Avunamayanlar romanlarıyla ilgili spoiler'lar içerirOkudugum en ilginç romanlardan biriydi. Yazarın okuduğum üçüncü kitabı. Daha önce okuduğum günden kalanlar ve beni asla bırakma daha kısa ve daha farklı romanlardı, ikisini de cok beğenmiştim. bu roman 540 sayfalık hacmiyle diğerlerinden biraz daha farklı. Günden kalanlar romanında başkarakter uşak (katil usak) :) evsahibine inanılmaz saygı duyuyor ve yaptığ [...]

Oh good lord, this book never ends. It just goes on and on getting weirder and weirder until you want to use the hefty thing to bash someone over the head with.The story goes that Ryder arrives in a generic European city with no idea where he is, why he is there or who he is. An interesting premise but one which fails to deliver again and again. The whole thing is written like one of those never-ending dreams where you're constantly going through impossible doors and realising you're late for ap [...]

Have you ever had one of those dreams where you are trying to get somewhere but things keep going wrong? You get on the wrong train, get off and go back in the other direction but it takes you somewhere else, then start walking but the streets don’t go where they’re supposed to?I’ve had those, mostly at times of stress, when I had a lot on my mind and my life felt out of control. This book is one of those dreams, described in detail for 500 pages. It sounds like a nightmare, quite literall [...]

Ryder arrives in town and steps into a hotel, ready to check in. And that's the last ordinary thing that happens in The Unconsoled. Ishiguro's narrative gradually descends into something other than reality. First, it's subtle: Ryder seems oddly patient as the hotel bellhop gives an extended monologue about himself and the respect (or lack thereof) accorded to his profession. Time seems to move in fits and starts, as characters whose concerns seem only incidental to the central plot (which surely [...]

This massive novel orbits the rest of Ishiguro's books like a giant red planet, complete with its own gaseous atmosphere and gravitational pull. It's his longest, most experimental, and uncompromising work and pushes certain aspects of his sensibilty to their extreme. Where his previous books were equisitely crafted machines that precisely put the reader through preordained emotional paces, 'The Unconsoled' is a brave leap into indeterminacy. This dream novel is a continual unbalancing act. Are [...]

J'ai mis trois semaines à venir à bout des 900 pages du roman de Kazuo Ishiguro. Pourquoi un tel masochisme ?Parce que j'avais aimé la quasi-totalité des livres de cet écrivain à l'élégante écriture, auteur notamment de "Auprès de moi toujours" et "Les vestiges du jour", souvent adapté au cinéma (Carrey Mullingan jouait dans le premier, Anthony Hopkins dans le second) et que j'étais curieux de découvrir celui-ci que je n'avais pas lu.Parce que la majorité des lecteurs qui se sont [...]

Este un roman fin și solid în același timp. Necesită timp și concentrare, dar merită să ajungă în reading list-ul tău.

Roman sanatı hakkındaki algım bu roman sayesinde bir sıçrama yaptı. Kolay bir okuma değil; dikkatli bir şekilde, ağır ağır okumak gerekiyor. Çünkü Kafkaesk bir atmosferde, birbirinden bağımsız ve gündelik mantığa sığmayan, adeta bir rüya atmosferinde geçen bir sürü olay yaşanıyor. Kazuo Ishigoro o kadar başarılı bir yazar ki bu olayların gelişme ve birbirlerine bağlanma şekilleri hiçbir şekilde göze batmıyor. Oysa, yeteneksiz ve tecrübesiz bir elde tam bi [...]
