Welcome to Day 2 of my 2020 Book Spotlight Countdown! For more information about this series, please read my introductory post here. Today, I’m celebrating The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro!
23rd of 2020
Arthurian legend meets charming long-term marriage in this novel. Our protagonists are refreshingly elderly, on a trek to visit their son’s village. Only one problem: they can’t quite remember where he lives. In fact, they can barely remember what happened last week. A mysterious fog over their village affects the memories of all who live there. As they quest to find their son, they get closer and closer to discovering the source of the fog, and meet some familiar names along the way.
If you enjoy Medieval retellings, low fantasy and heartwarming relationships, you’ll love this.
