My Top Ten…Day Ten

10. The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro


We have reached the end.  The last book in my top ten.  The Remains of the Day by Kazoo Ishiguro. Talk about a frustrating and amazing read.  You have a main character who is so repressed that he has no idea about what is going on around him including the fact that he will not admit the attraction, the love that he feels for the housekeeper, appears to be oblivious to the fact that his boss is a nazi sympathiser.  His obsession with maintaining perfection and upholding his position as a butler, means that he lives his entire life without allowing others to share it with him. It’s tragic, beautiful and I love it.

I hope that you’ve enjoyed finding out about my top ten favourite books.  Here is the total list.
