The Buried Giant


An old couple and their journey to find their lost memories.

Although the writing style is beautiful, I couldn't really get engaged by the story. I'm pretty sure I lost a lot of the subtle messages the author was trying to convey, but I couldn't bother to speculate. I couldn't care enough for the characters to do so.

Maybe it was just the wrong book for me. Maybe the language gap was too big for me to scale. Maybe the book took me out of my comfort zone. Maybe I'm just stupid.
