Spring (2)

  • 第261页
    The entire Chapter 2 and beginning of Chapter 3 is enchanting! I love so much the part when Richard got saved from his suicide and the 4 of them riding a truck in a suburban Scotland road. The flas...

    The entire Chapter 1 was a bit “underwhelming”. Underwhelming, a word I picked up from a bossy lady who commented on the showy presentation I made for her boss. Until this early page in Chapter 2...

Autumn (4)

  • 第121页
    The bagatelle part. Ingenious. How I wish I could've met someone and played such game with, when I was thirteen years old. The picture/story one and this - he is telling her all about imagination, ...

    "A minute ago it was June. Now the weather is September. The crops are high, about to be cut, bright, golden. November? unimaginable. Just a month away. The days are still warm, the air in the shad...

    Again, Elisabeth and Daniel’s second interaction touched me deeply. The imagination of an art piece, and yes, the throwing of a watch into the canal. I’m afraid Ali Smith has just made into my li...
  • 第53页
    The passage when Elisabeth met Daniel. So charmingly written. This is how a lifelong friendship unfolds I presume? It is even more romantic than the best love-at-the-first-sight kind of thing.

The Remains of the Day (4)

  • The End
    Well at least I see answers to many questions I had. At least Mr. Stevens is capable of heart-breaking. The drizzly afternoon Miss Kenton and Mr. Stevens spent together is so sad, that I can't bear...
  • 第239页 Day Four Afternoon - Little Compton Cornwall
    The second time the word "triumph" appeared in the book. The first time was when Mr. Stevens was serving the great "unofficial" gathering when His father died. This time I felt a bit of disgust. Ho...
  • 第179页 Day 3 Evening - Moscombe Near Tavistock, Devon
    Throughout the book, I can hardly delineate Miss Kenton from Ishiguro's description, or rather the lack of it. There is little idea in my mind as to what Miss Kenton should look like. I know for su...
  • 第63页 Day Two - Morning, Salisbury
    Frankly speaking it might be a grave mistake reading Kazuo Ishiguro right after Julian Barnes, when I have grown accustomed to the latter's style. Up until this chapter, the story can be summed up ...

Pond (3)

  • 第39页
    Her exclaim of how the sign "Pond" ruins the spontaneity of the nature's beauty amuses me. Sounds really like middle aged, unmarried women who are well educated to the extent to be a bit paranoid. ...

    "Chopping. Morning, noon and night it seems. How I love to chop" Reminded me of Paterson. Sounds like a little poetry he would have scribbled down on his notebook.
  • 第21页
    The sensitivity and self-awareness of the author just blew me away. Something goes like "I can't help realizing the fingers buttoning up the clothes will eventually be the same ones that buttoning ...

The Flamethrowers (2)

  • 4. Blank
    在Salt flat飙车的一部分对速度的描述简直出神入化。作者对机车的痴迷揉进了各种城市背景中。罗马夜色中飙车的片段,画面感极强,让人想到那些名字响亮的意大利导演镜头里面的霓虹灯和藏着欲望的夜晚。 Rachel的...

    骑机车穿过Nevada的这一段笔触简练却字字珠玑,是最近读的书里笔法最洗练也最漂亮的。字里行间透着Kerouac的痕迹,却多了一点细腻,少了一点粗粝。 到第13页的时候已经忍不住想着中文译本样子,琢磨着字字句句怎...
