Really, K-K?! I thought The Unconsoled was brilliant! It’s difficult to follow because it’s supposed to be in dream form and so follows dream-logic, which isn’t logical at all. That’s what I found so clever about the narrative – it jumps around just like dreams do. I think there is an underlying coherence but it’s very subtle. I know a lot of Ishiguro fans didn’t like it but he is trying to push himself into new creative areas which are bound to be controversial.
