Just infuriating. The long monologues of banality and missed opportunities made me laugh and cringe. I can see it is a great book, but I didn't want to experience the tedium and missed opportunities at what felt like first-hand much of the time. ( )

Try as he might, Ishiguro could not completely forsake bubbles of coherence if not resolution. Whatever one's personal reaction to this unique book, it maintains its dream-like conceit far beyond the talent of most writers. ( )
  Lemeritus | Aug 19, 2021 |
Starts off sensibly but slowly devolves into a daydream with the narrative jumping around like episodes in a dream just barely linked together. Geography bends to accommodate the narrative, the characters appear in nonsensical places.
I'm sure you can read it differently but the way I understood it is this single visit to an anonymous European city compresses the whole life of the narrator into a few days. The characters he meets are his friends, family and others that he met throughout his career and also himself at different times of his life and the bizarre events are echoes of real life experiences distorted and exaggerated through time. ( )

It is like experiencing a nightmare filled with frustration and anxiety. It's a interesting, impressionistic work, although I prefer traditional novels, and it does go on too long. ( )
  Misprint | Aug 31, 2020 |
I gave it 3 stars not because it was disappointing, but because it was so challenging. Characters go into ridiculously long monologues that make you want to throttle them. The passive-aggressiveness is so over the top that it is often hilarious. The absurdist tone keeps you on your toes as the plot moves tangentially forward. ( )

The Unconsoled itself is beautifully controlled, even-paced, deadpan in spite of all extravagances. Its determined equanimity of tone makes you drowsy, and sometimes you wonder if you'd notice if you dropped off to sleep while you were reading. But there is finally something haunting, even alluring, about the proliferation of obstacles and stories in this book.

‘To be perfectly fair, it’s not their fault. The modern forms, they’re so complex now. Kazan, Mullery, Yoshimoto. Even for a trained musician such as myself, it’s hard now, very hard. The likes of von Winterstein, the Countess, what chance do they have? They’re completely out of their depth. To them it’s just crashing noise, a whirl of strange rhythms. Perhaps they’ve convinced themselves over the years they can hear something there, certain emotions, meanings. But the truth is, they’ve found nothing at all. They’re out of their depth, they’ll never understand how modern music works. Once it was simply Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky. Even the man in the street could make a reasoned guess about that sort of music. But the modern forms! How can people like this, untrained, provincial people, how can they ever understand such things, however great a sense of duty they feel towards the community? It’s hopeless,
‘My own view is that Kazan never benefits from formalised restraints. Neither from the circular dynamic, nor even a doublebar structure. There are simply too many layers, too many emotions, especially in the later works.’
One should not, in any case, attempt to make a virtue out of one’s limitations.’
