Ultimately, the characters and events in this dreamlike narrative do lead to a psychological profile for Ryder that pulls all the weirdness together. Among the most important characters are Boris, a 12 year-old boy with a heightened sense of responsibility; Stephan, a talented-twenty something pianist who decides to test his ability in the wide world; and Brodsky, an elderly and once famous conductor whose achievement is unrecognized in his community. For each of these characters, Ishiguro creates moments of odd emotional rejection and unappeasable expectations. The meaning of these experiences, as well as similar moments in the lives of other "unconsoled" characters, then clarifies when Ishiguro finally delves into Ryder's relationship with his own parents. This concludes in a eureka-moment and helped this reader "get" the narrative, as well as pity Ryder for the strange emotional warmth he finds at the novel's end.
THE UNCONSOLED is not for everybody. But it's a major book and is highly recommended.
A story in a dream state. Time is slowing down or speeding up. Protagonist is getting interrupted constantly by people who ask advice and then explain their problem in such boring details yet do not make our hero late. One time it feels like the concert is about to begin shortly and suddenly breakfast is served instead. This is most weird. Somehow he gets there in time no matter how many items block his way including a brick wall. In fact some of the monologues were so agonizingly detailed and went on for so many kindle pages that I found myself skimming to get past it all.
Human nature is examined amidst the goings on. People ask advice then when Ryder gives it; they might not believe him at all and try to convince him otherwise. We see this in a case where a son is driven to please his parents who never recognize his talent and are embarrassed by him. Why? Well I know people like that. You probably do too. Then there is the child who plays the grownup role consoling his mother as an adult would.
Ishiguro had me laughing out loud every few pages. (this is a spoiler) A leg hacked off with a saw found in the boot of a car by a surgeon who insists he must operate and NOW! Of course no anaesthesia. What movie was that in? The one-legged man then uses an ironing board as a crutch even though he must conduct a symphony!
Well I don't want to spoil anything else so enjoy the book. Even 500 pages will go by quickly. I am a great fan of Ishiguro and lap up eagerly anything he writes. This is the first book that is so abstract and confusing. How does Ishiguro make the confused reader keep reading? But he does. I wonder how he can create each story so different from all the others.
