The novel's narrator, Stevens, is a perfect English butler who tries to give his narrow existence form and meaning through the self-effacing, almost mystical practice of his profession. In a career that spans the second World War, Stevens is oblivious of the real life that goes on around him -- oblivious, for instance, of the fact that his aristocrat employer is a Nazi sympathizer. Still, there are even larger matters at stake in this heartbreaking, pitch-perfect novel -- namely, Stevens' own ability to allow some bit of life-affirming love into his tightly repressed existence.… (mais)

For all the literary awards "The Remains of the Day" has received, it seems unfair for me to simply say the book was "just OK". In saying this, I'm reminded of that standard lame break-up line "... it's not YOU, it's ME." And that's probably true in this this case, e.g., it's not the BOOK, it's ME.
I picked this book up because many considered it a beautifully written, moving book about what it means to be the quintessential English Butler around the time of the First World War. The story is told in the first person by such a butler as he journeys through the English countryside, and reminisces about his profession and his life. But to me, it was like enduring my neighbors photo album as he talked on and on about his recent trip. With apologies to all the literary critics and the author, this type of book just doesn't grab me. ( )

Just re-read it after first having encountered the book in high school more than 17 years ago. I must admit this is a book I am more able to appreciate and with which it resonates so much more now that I am a 35-year old than when I was a teenager. ( )

I've wanted to read a book by Ishiguro for years, so why not the one that won the Man Booker Prize? Reminiscent of Isle of Passion by Laura Restrepo in that not much happened, but the book was well written and never boring.

The book follows the stilted behavior of a proper, dignified English butler in the 1920s, when the world is changing from old world values to capitalism and professional politicians, a change which is anathema to the butler. The story is told by reminiscing during a solo automobile trip to the West of England. One of the underlying themes is aging, and it summed up best by these two paragraphs:

“Now, look, mate, I’m not sure I follow everything you’re saying. But if you ask me, your attitude’s all wrong, see? Don’t keep looking back all the time, you’re bound to get depressed. And all right, you can’t do your job as well as you used to. But it’s the same for all of us, see? We’ve all got to put our feet up at some point. Look at me. Been happy as a lark since the day I retired. All right, so neither of us are exactly in our first flush of youth, but you’ve got to keep looking forward.” And I believe it was then that he said:

“You’ve got to enjoy yourself. The evening’s the best part of the day. You’ve done your day’s work. Now you can put your feet up and enjoy it. That’s how I look at it. Ask anybody, they’ll all tell you. The evening’s the best part of the day.” ( )

We can work out the date of Stevens's expedition ... Ominous dates. ... the Suez crisis dominated British current affairs. ... Stevens is not returning to a golden evening ... there are no remains -- except in the sense of `corpse'.

The Remains of the Day is too much a roman à thèse, and a judgmental one besides. Compared to his astounding narrative sophistication, Ishiguro's message seems quite banal: Be less Japanese, less bent on dignity, less false to yourself and others, less restrained and controlled. The irony is that it is precisely Ishiguro's beautiful restraint and control that one admires, and, in the case of the last novel [The Remains of the Day], his nerve in setting up such a high-wire act for himself.
adicionada por jburlinson | editarNew York Review of Books, Gabriele Annan (sítio Web pago) (Dec 7, 1989)
 
Kazuo Ishiguro's tonal control of Stevens' repressive yet continually reverberating first-person voice is dazzling. So is his ability to present the butler from every point on the compass: with affectionate humor, tart irony, criticism, compassion and full understanding. It is remarkable, too, that as we read along in this strikingly original novel, we continue to think not only about the old butler, but about his country, its politics and its culture.

The English landscape at its finest—such as I saw this morning—possesses a quality that the landscapes of other nations, however more superficially dramatic, inevitably fail to possess. It is, I believe, a quality that will mark out the English landscape to any objective observer as the most deeply satisfying in the world, and this quality is probably best summed up by the term 'greatness.' And yet what precisely is this greatness? I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it.
