Book Review: The Remains of the Day

Kazuo Ishiguro's 1988 novel "The Remains of the Day" is an instant favorite of mine. In the book, Ishiguro explores concepts such as duty, vocational passion, and love. It is a powerfully sad story.

Having read the book, I have noticed a marked decrease in how connected I feel to my work. Work and the idea of loving your work now feel ontologically bad. For anyone who considers themselves to love their work, this novel is a must-read.
