TDAOC Reading Tips #1

When in doubt: read some Kazuo Ishiguro.

You reading the latest? We're thinking about reading it in my book group. Want to join a book group? We meet once a month and eat Dim Sum.

(Glowers intimidatingly. Go ahead. Say no. I dare you.)

N...nnnn....nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn...ack, YES! That's to the second question. The one I couldn't say no to.

As for the first question: I read Never Let Me Go last year. You have to read it. Have to. Have. To. Must. Ok, not really have to, but you should, and I would recommend it, because it's really awfully good. Amazingly good.

Sometime after that I finally read Remains of the Day and now I'm reading When We Were Orphans and I think it's all cementing my desire to become Kazuo Ishiguro when I grow up.
