Klara And The Sun
Review: This is one of those books that you either love or hate. I loved it. It reminded me of "Never Let Me Go" by this author. It's been a while since I read "Never Let Me Go," so I don't remember every detail - only that it was haunting, and I loved the way it made me think about life. This new book is similar. I couldn't stop thinking about recent events while reading "Klara and the Sun." The story digs deep into what it means to be human.... More
