I love Ishiguro's work- particularly his novels and I was disappointed by these short stories the characters and central themes of which failed to really engage me. Ishiguro uses music as a foundation to the collection and perhaps not having any knowledge or ability in the musical world was a disadvatage for this listener.

A series of 5 vignettes on the themes on music & relationships.
Ishiguro's writing is stunning & the narration in the audiobook is top notch. Each of the 5 stories was wonderful, I usually prefer books to short stories as I like to get involved with the characters, but there was none of that limitation with these stories.
Each story outlines a relationship which provokes a different reaction: I found the first romantic & sad, the extremely funny. There are characters to love, hate & to feel ambivalent towards.
I wish Audible stocked more of Ishiguro's books. Anyone who is familiar with "Remains of the day" (either the book or movie) knows what a fine story teller he is.
This is for anyone who enjoys fine fiction.
