    1. Did you ever wonder what it was like in Japan after its defeat in WW II? So here we are in Japan in 1947. Our main character, an older man and an artist, lost his wife in a stray bomb that also destroyed much of his home, and he also lost his only son in the war. But he still has two daughters; one married with a son, and one trying to get married, but she’s getting a bit old for that time and culture; she’s past her mid-20’s.Japan was occupied by the United States, of course, and we impos [...]


    2. Second reading. The gist of this novel is the narrator's culpability for his patriotic actions during the war with the U.S. Set in a suburb of Tokyo during the American occupation, the narrator, Masuji Ono, is now surrounded by those who blame him for Japan's disastrous gamble on war and those like himself. Ono's generation was that of the old men cheerleading for war. And there can be no question about his complicity. In his youth he trained as an artist of the demimonde or "floating world," bu [...]


    3. Rereading this novel I felt that the award of the 2017 Nobel prize for Literature to Ishiguro was a very safe choice.In one way Ishiguro's books are not very interesting, the narrator might be unreliable or limited, there is a concern for memory and the role of a creative intelligence in understanding and reinterpreting the past, there are issues of guilt and responsibility, and love. And one can find these elements in book after book. But he is deft and clever, a safe choice for the nobel prize [...]


    4. If you've already read The Remains of the Day, chances are your enjoyment of An Artist of the Floating World will be greatly curtailed. And that is the sheer tragedy of this book.Replace Stevens with Masuji Ono. Replace a tottering England with a war-ravaged, financially unstable Japan and insert Ishiguro's penchant for allegory. And TADA you have An Artist of the Floating World.This book had potential to be a very emotionally charged commentary on a nation rebuilding itself from its charred (at [...]


    5. الحرب العالمية الثانية لها تأثير كبير على الأدب يكتب كازو إيشيجورو عن التحولات في الفكر الياباني بعد الحربورأي الشباب عن مسئولية الجيل القديم عن الحرب والهزيمة رسام متقاعد آمن بالحرب ودعمها بفنه يُعيد تقييم مواقفه وأحداث حياته الماضية بعد الأذى الذي تعرضت له بلده وتغيُر ا [...]


    6. An Artist of the Floating World is a nice pleasant read. Although Ishiguro had not lived through this period and lives in England, he evokes the languid rhythms of life in post-war Japan with panache. His protagonist addresses the reader in the second person over the entire book, telling us of his career as a propagandistic artist of pre-war Imperial Japan and his retirement. There is a marked similarity between Oji and the protagonist of The Remains of the Day, in that each had acted in morally [...]


    7. Set in Japan right after WW2, Masuji Ono, a retired artist, looks back on his life and career from when he was a celebrated painter in the pre-war years to the social pariah he now is in the post-war years thanks to his ties to imperialist Japan. Doesn’t sound like much of a story, does it? It isn’t! I remember really enjoying Kazuo Ishiguro’s The Remains of the Day, so much so that I read it twice, so I don’t know why I’ve never read anything else by the guy. I decided to pick up the [...]


    8. I thought Kazuo Ishiguro was not one of the authors who do not rewrite themselves. This book proved me wrong. He is like many other authors who write at least two novels with similar plot, themes and even characters. They just change some aspects of the novel like settings, climax or maybe the names of the places and people. I was disappointed but the disappointment was not enough for me to give this 1 star because the book still has all those Ishiguro's trademarks that made me fall in love with [...]


    9. "And if on reaching the foot of the hill which climbs up to my house, you pause at the Bridge of Hesitation and look back towards the remains of our old pleasure district, if the sun has not yet set completely, you may see the line of old telegraph poles – still without wires to connect them – disappearing into the gloom down the route you have just come, And you may be able to make out the dark clusters of birds perched uncomfortably on the tops of the poles, as though awaiting the wires al [...]


    10. After reading Never Let Me Go, I swore that I would read more of Ishiguro's work. It was fate that I ran across An Artist of the Floating World at my Library. The novel isn't a particularly long one - coming in at a mere 206 pages. It was a breeze to get through.I'm noticing that with Ishiguro's narrators so far, the tone is very conversational. Throughout this book, the protagonist Masuji Ono, a retired artist, speaks intimately to the readerThroughout the book, Masuji Ono, the protagonist, spe [...]


    11. Steady, measured, gentle, sure-handed, slightly seductive.Ishiguro's narrator is fooling himself for sure throughout his tale, but you almost believe him.Some wonderfully graceful pacing, with the situations and pages melting into one another, which as one reviewer here remarked, makes a "floating world" all its own.It sort of reminds me of the thing said about Flaubert's "Sentimental Education"- the main theme is largely heard in the background. For Flaubert it was revolutionary upheaval in mid [...]


    12. Each time my eyelids bowed down to the devil of grave drowsiness, the concave depths displayed a lean, modest shadowy figure standing on the Bridge of Hesitation; the wrinkles on his forehead becoming deeper , trembling with culpability, wishing for Noriko’s miai to be an incessant success. The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow">Jerome K Jerome was accurate with his analysis of the solitude of an idle mind bringing generous thoughts. There I was, nursing an acute bronchial cough cursing the f [...]


    13. In this way and that I tried to save the old pailSince the bamboo strip was weakening and about to breakUntil at last the bottom fell out.No more water in the pail!No more moon in the water!


    14. This book is difficult to describe. What is it about? An old man, an artist, a young man, grandchildren and satisfaction. Also regret and the courage to live a life you can be proud of.


    15. Masuji Ono, the narrator, fights a constant battle against himself. Ono must emotionally cope with not only the guilt he feels from his past participation in injurious governmental activities, but also the pains of ageing and the loneliness he experiences through both the death of family members and his alienation from the new generation. Ono’s writings are a form of self-therapy. His tactic is to postpone the recognition of his past and spend as much time as possible avoiding a confrontation [...]



    16. With this my reading of Ishiguro's canon is complete. So he'd better be working on something new.The novel is set in postwar Japan. The first person narrator, Mr. Ono, is a retired artist reflecting back on his career and life. He is widowed, and his son was killed in a minefield in Manchuria. He has two adult daughters and one grandson. As he explains his daughter Noriko's attempts to find a husband, we are first led to believe that her lack of success is simply a result of unfortunate timing; [...]


    17. There's enjoyable monotony and then there's monotonous monotony. This novel falls into the latter category. Disappointingly. I personally think Ishiguro suffers the sophomore struggle with this novel. Eh, I don't know. This one just wasn't for me. It didn't entice me at all. I was just reading about these characters doing things and that was really it. However it written very well. But that's expected from Ishiguro.


    18. An Artist of the Floating World has much the same flavor to it that Remains of the Day possesses. It is a first person narrative from a narrator who is obvious in his inability to be impartial or reliable. As we try to piece together the truth of this man and his life, there is a heaviness of spirit that emerges, a sense of failure that is misunderstood, and a sense that Ono, the narrator, not only misunderstands himself but also those around him.Like much of Ishiguro’s work, this book leaves [...]


    19. Kazuo Ishiguro, Premio Nobel 2017, nació en Japón pero vive desde niño en Gran Bretaña. Ha mostrado su cultura británica en la novela The remains of the day, conocida en Argentina como Lo que queda del día. En Un artista en el mundo flotante (de igual modo que en su novela debut, Pálida luz de las colinas), muestra su cultura japonesa, no sólo por la localización de la novela, sino por el estilo amable, sereno y desapegado de la narración. Masuji Ono es quien nos habla, desde el Japón [...]


    20. This was the first novel, by Kazuo Ishiguro, that I finished reading due to its seemingly familiar title mentioning "the Floating World" I first found in Ihara Saikaku's stories. From its 206 pages, I think, most readers should find reading it quite manageable as guaranteed by its Winner of the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in 1986. Reading it, as for me, was relatively enjoyable since I needed concentration in following various episodes and its key protagonist named Masuji Ono, the eminent p [...]


    21. I liked the theme of the book, the setting, and what it is trying to say. I even enjoyed the writing and the details of post-war life in Japan sporadically. I just found the book in its whole rather boring. I really enjoy this style of narrative in films and Japanese films like in Cha no Oji or Tenten, which are good examples of this style. But it didn't work well as a novel for me.I am not completely sure what the author is trying to say either. Was it an apology for Japan's excesses during the [...]


    22. Kazuo Ishiguro le lauréat du Prix Nobel de Littérature de 2017 est en très grande forme dans "Un artiste du monde flottant". Le défaut de ce roman le plus souvent signalé est qu'il ressemble trop au roman qui l'a suivi "Les Vestiges du jour". La reprise est sans le moindre doute meilleure mais je suis très content qu'Ishiguro nous a donné les deux romans.J'ai des petites réserves à l'égard de l'authenticité de "Un artiste du monde flottant" dont les événements se déroulent au Japon [...]


    23. "The likes of you and me, Ono, when we look back over our lives and see they were flawed, we're the only ones who care now"An old man's guilt is absolute loneliness, ultimate insomnia


    24. Това е може би най-японската книга на Ишигуро.Ситуацията е в следвоенна Япония. Дискусиите в романа са обичайно заподозрените - реконструкция на миналото, как войната се отразява на малкия човек, или още по-конкретно - на човекът на изкуството? Източните ценности присъстват [...]


    25. What a rich and marvelous novel. And what emotional depth Ishiguro displays. I not only thoroughly enjoyed this book, I admired it. Highly recommended


    26. Sitnice koje se pamte, upečatljive scene, opipljiva atmosfera, virkanje u tuđu kulturu - čist čitalački užitak, a opet, nije to 'moja' knjiga, neka koju bih čitala dva puta ili nagovarala druge da je čitaju, što mi je preduslov za više zvezdica. I znam da sam surovija prema mejnstrim knjigama nego prema žanrovskim, valjda od ovih drugih imam manja očekivanja i ako me zabave - to je to, dok prve poredim sa mnogo jakim prethodnicima, što nije fer, ali eto.Važna napomena: ako čitate [...]


    27. Post WWII Japan. The recent past bites the lives of those who supported Japan's dreams of a single Asian empire. The narrator was an artist who supported the Emperor and now lives with regret, guilt, ageing, and loneliness. The conflict between the young looking forward and those blamed for the Japanese position was the highlight for me in a book of few words but with clear intent.


    28. Değişen Dünyada Bir Sanatçı, Ishiguro'nun ikinci romanı. Ben hem yöntem, hem de yazarın kaygılarından dolayı Günden Kalanlar adlı romanına çok benzettim. Günden Kalanlar'ın bu romana kıyasla çok iyi, daha emekli ve daha incelikli olduğunu düşünsem de, bu roman da öyle pek yabana atılır cinsten değil.Yine, bir Ishiguro alışkanlığı olduğunu gördüğümüz biçimde, yaşlı bir ressamın çeşitli çağrışımlarla hayatını sorgulayışını okuyoruz. Diğer rom [...]


    29. His influence over us was not, of course, confined merely to the realms of painting. We lived throughout those years almost entirely in accordance with his values and lifestyle, and this entailed spending much time exploring the city's 'floating world' -- the night-time world of pleasure, entertainment and drink which formed the backdrop for all our paintings. I always feel a certain nostalgia now in recalling the city centre as it was in those days; the streets were not so filled with the noise [...]
