Opinion

From Library Staff

Stevens, an elderly butler, hopes to rise to the top of his profession, and he remains stoic and unemotional at his father's death and neglects the opportunity to pursue a relationship with a former housekeeper.

I loved listening to this novel. It seemed to end somewhat abruptly though with no acknowledgement that this was the end of the book like all the other audio books I've read.
I loved the preciseness that seems to be characteristic of all things British.
I was sure hoping for some insight on the part of the butler, Mr. Stevens, that he needed to be a bit more human and not such a perfectionistic robotic person, totally married to his role as a great, dignified butler.
The author's note sheds light on how a person of Japanese decent could write about this aspect of British culture.
