I fell in love with this heart warming futuristic story because it was so different from anything else I’d read.
Klara and Rosa are on display in a store window when Josie comes by and promises to take Klara home. While she waits for Josie’s return, she realises that not all AF’s have the ability she has — an insight into human emotions. She keenly observes all she can until Josie and her mother finally return and purchase her. But Klara soon learns that Josie is often seriously ill and her older sister has already died. Can she help her get well? And will the sun keep its end of a bargain as Klara has begged it to?
FYI Ishiguro is also the author of The remains of the day and Never let me go, both made into movies.
