Nocturnes: Five Stories of Music and Nightfall by Kazuo Ishiguro
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Finished this less than 24 hours ago and the only thing that is sticking to my mind is that the singer in the first story looked and sounded like a character James Gandolfini would play. The plots are nothing new (non existent in Malvern Hills, and the dialog is labored to the point breaking at some point in each story. By the end, I felt like I was reading something Ishiguro thrown away rather than something ready to be published. To his credit, however, even garbage Ishiguro is readable if you want something fast and easy.
