Just saw this quote from Never Let Me Go being paired with...you can never guess what...a piece of Snape/Lily fan art:

"I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it's just too much. The current's too strong. They've got to let go, drift apart. That's how it is with us. It's a shame...because we've loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can't stay together forever."

I think my love for Kazuo Ishiguro and his writing just exploded by a million times...

Hurrah! They're making another film adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's books; this time it's Never Let Me go and probably it'll be released sometime this year.

On the down side, it's got Keira Knightley in it and in probably the main role. *groan*

I've got nothing against Knightley in particular (she was pretty good in Atonement, I must admit) but I unfortunately don't like her that much.

First a musical version of The Remains of the Day and now another film of another novel...I wonder what else will crop up in relation to Ishiguro's works? *ponders*

Now I'll have to get back to writing my essay which is due tomorrow afternoon. *sigh*

Most people on my f-list will probably know that Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day is one of my favourite books, if not the favourite.

One probably also knows I do like musicals from time to time but seriously...The Remains of the Day + music = musical?

Will it be doable? Kazuo Ishiguro himself believes so: www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/mandrake/5401693/Its-Remains-of-the-Day-the-musical-for-Kazuo-Ishiguro.html

As for myself, I'll definitely be interested in the outcome.

Finally got a hold of a copy of Kazuo Ishiguro's new collection of five short stories entitled Nocturnes...and the second one quite surprisingly had me laughing out loud since some of the dialogue was utterly amusing. The style is perhaps more modern than in comparison to say, Stevens' POV in The Remains of the Day but definitely signature Ishiguro even with the slightly uncharacteristic use of swearing in the dialogue.

It's been a while since Ishiguro has published a novel so hopefully this is only a little taster of what might come in the future...he's still young yet being only in his mid-fifties, after all.
