Reminded me a lot of [b:Convenience Store Woman|38357895|Convenience Store Woman|Sayaka Murata|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1523623053l/38357895._SY75_.jpg|51852264], a very detached sort of story, that also managed to be rather engaging in its own quirky way. But ultimately, it just didn't click with me, and never quite came together, with numerous details remaining unexplained, or not quite making sense to the extent that they were explained. Frustrating. ( )

The story of a smart but simple AI artificial friend Klara and the family Klara is acquired by. Klara is a careful and caring observer of her world which is very narrow and centered around a profound self generated belief and faith in the power and attention of the Sun. As limited as Klara's window into human society is the understanding of AIs by humans is shown to be narrower. ( )

Klara likes her life in the store with Manager and the other AFs. She likes it best when she is in the window and can best see Sun and marvel at the things he can do. When one day a girl sees her in the window, Klara knows that she will be just the right friend for her and promises to wait. What happens after will change Klara's existence forever.

Beautiful writing as always, Ishiguro explores themes around artificial intelligence, class systems, belief systems, and the challenges and possibilities of the biological sciences. Klara is a fantastic narrator to bring us into this world, both familiar and strange at the same time. It's a novel I'd love to dig into with a reading group or in a university class particularly how did other people interpret Klara's vision often splitting things into boxes? On a surface level, a likely glitch of her model of AF but I'm sure Ishiguro is using this as a symbol for something. I'm just not sure what. Fans of Ishiguro's previous novels, particularly [Never Let Me Go] will find another reading experience to enjoy here. Recommended. ( )

[Klara and the Sun] by Ishiguro

So, I pretty much love anything by Ishiguro and this was no exception. This book explores a society split by whether or nor they are "lifted" and also explores Artificial Intelligence (AI), both it uses and its limitations. Klara is purchased to help care for a little girl who is sick, to be her companion, keep her company and watch out for her. We witness family dynamics through Klara's eyes. Klara is very observant and compassionate, but can she ever truly understand human interaction? Love? There are lots of mysteries in this novel, but I don't want to give anything away, so just read it! I can't wait to talk about this one with my RL book group. ( )

Is it science fiction? A religious allegory? A coming of age story? Of course, Ishiguro has made it seamlessly all three. Klara is an AF, Artificial Friend, capable of astute perceptions and observations of the humans and AFs around her. Solar powered, she looks to the Sun, not only for power, but also for guidance. Klara's voice comes across as robotically stilted at the same time that she conveys emotions, which adds to the power of her narration. When her human, a young teenage girl, is at death's door (apparently because of genetic engineering) Klara makes a Faustian deal with the Sun, and a miracle seems to take place. This is a bitter-sweet portrait of a not-too-distant future when artificial intelligences are an integral part of our lives. ( )

In de licht dystopische roman voert Ishiguro een balanseer act uit op de rand van kitch. Hij slaagt er echter op een uitzonderlijke wijze in om in evenwicht te blijven. Klara en de zon is een zeer geslaagde, enigszins verontrustende en gelaagde nieuwe roman van de meesterverteller en Nobelprijswinnaar…lees verder>
 
Most of Ishiguro’s novels are slender books that are more complicated than they at first seem; Klara and the Sun is by contrast more simple than it seems, less novel than parable. Though much is familiar here—the restrained language, the under-stated first-person narration—the new book is much more overt than its predecessors about its concerns.... Ishiguro is unsentimental—indeed, one of the prevailing criticisms of him is that he’s too cold, his novels overly designed, his language detached. (Some of the worst writing on Ishiguro ascribes this to his being Japanese, overlooking that he’s lived in England since he was a small child.) In most hands, this business of the mother-figure who sacrifices all for a child would be mawkish. Here it barely seems like metaphor. Every parent has at times felt like an automaton. Every parent has pleaded with some deity for the safety of their child. Every parent is aware of their own, inevitable obsolescence. And no child can offer more than Josie’s glib goodbye, though perhaps Ishiguro wants to; the book is dedicated to his mother.

It explores many of the subjects that fill our news feeds, from artificial intelligence to meritocracy. Yet its real political power lies not in these topical references but in its quietly eviscerating treatment of love. Through Klara, Josie, and Chrissie, Ishiguro shows how care is often intertwined with exploitation, how love is often grounded in selfishness ... this book focuses on those we exploit primarily for emotional labor and care work—a timely commentary during a pandemic in which the essential workers who care for us are too often treated as disposable ... If Never Let Me Go demonstrates how easily we can exploit those we never have to see, Klara and the Sun shows how easily we can exploit even those we claim to love ... a story as much about our own world as about any imagined future, and it reminds us that violence and dehumanization can also come wrapped in the guise of love.
afegit per Lemeritus | editaThe Nation, Katie Fitzpatrick (Mar 24, 2021)
 
... the real power of this novel: Ishiguro’s ability to embrace a whole web of moral concerns about how we navigate technological advancements, environmental degradation and economic challenges even while dealing with the unalterable fact that we still die.... tales of sensitive robots determined to help us survive our self-destructive impulses are not unknown in the canon of science fiction. But Ishiguro brings to this poignant subgenre a uniquely elegant style and flawless control of dramatic pacing. In his telling, Klara’s self-abnegation feels both ennobling and tragic.
 
Critics often note Ishiguro’s use of dramatic irony, which allows readers to know more than his characters do. And it can seem as if his narrators fail to grasp the enormity of the injustices whose details they so meticulously describe. But I don’t believe that his characters suffer from limited consciousness. I think they have dignity. Confronted by a complete indifference to their humanity, they choose stoicism over complaint. We think we grieve for them more than they grieve for themselves, but more heartbreaking is the possibility that they’re not sure we differ enough from their overlords to understand their true sorrow. And maybe we don’t, and maybe we can’t. Maybe that’s the real irony, the way Ishiguro sticks in the shiv.... In Klara and the Sun, Ishiguro leaves us suspended over a rift in the presumptive order of things. Whose consciousness is limited, ours or a machine’s? Whose love is more true? If we ever do give robots the power to feel the beauty and anguish of the world we bring them into, will they murder us for it or lead us toward the light?

Mr Capaldi believed there was nothing special inside Josie that couldn’t be continued. He told the Mother he’d searched and searched and found nothing like that. But I believe now he was searching in the wrong place. There was something very special, but it wasn’t inside Josie. It was inside those who loved her.
