I picked up Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall by Kazuo Ishiguro at the library in Florida for my drive back to New Orleans last week. I picked it off the shelf simply because it filled the "music term" requirement for the What's In A Name Reading Challenge I am working on, it was only later that I learned Ishiguro wrote The Remains of the Day. Honestly I never finished watching that movie but now I am tempted to go read the book and then try watching the movie again, because I think I fell in love with Ishiguro's writing style while listening to Nocturnes.
From Publisher's Weekly:
Nocturnes being my first Ishiguro book I wasn't left hanging in anticipation of a "crescendo that never hits" as the above review suggested so if you are new to his work maybe this is the title to start with as it is engrossing and delightful to read but doesn't leave you hanging as it might if you read one of the more popular novels first. I would definitely recommend reading Nocturnes and look forward to reading more from Kazuo Ishiguro.
