Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro takes place in a hypothetical, dystopian future where the world has less socially and culturally developed children. This technologically advanced society crafts emotionally intelligent robots who are geared to become friends with their patron. Ishiguro’s novel follows the robot AF (artificial friend), Klara, and her journey. This text blurs the lines between human and robot, and asks its reader “what makes a human being, human?” I absolutely loved the concept of this book, but think it could’ve been conveyed better. This would make a good book club book, as it asks moral and ethical questions about the future of humanity. But personally, I thought the plot was average and the storyline dragged.
