The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro

Interesting how a book can appeal at one time and not another. I tried reading this one about ten years ago and couldn’t do it. This time around though, I loved the book. Again, I was captivated by Ishiguro’s fantastic, pitch-perfect tone. Stevens, a butler, recalls his years of service to Lord Darlington. The key word is “service.” As the tale unfolds through Stevens’ first-person reflections, you become increasingly aware that he has poignantly missed so much in life because of his dedication.
