A contemporary classic, The Remains of the Day is Kazuo Ishiguro's beautiful and haunting evocation of life between the wars in a Great English House.

In the summer of 1956, Stevens, the ageing butler of Darlington Hall, embarks on a leisurely holiday that will take him deep into the English countryside and into his past.


  • An exceptional novel

    By Turrican14
    A sad tale of suppressed emotions and misplaced priorities. One of the best books I've ever read.
  • There is a reason that this book won awards

    By teraif
    Timeless. beautifully written in a style which tells a story in itself. Haunting story. A rare thing to have the main character who tells the tale yet is not really likeable. Though I suspect that some will like him or feel a certain sympathy.

    This is a really special book. Wonderful writing and a subtle, unsettling story which reveals itself, layer by layer. A true classic and the best of Ishiguro's work.
