@kureshii Just finished The Remains of the Day. Thanks so much for the recommendation! II loved how I felt like I was deep inside the narrator's mind VS hearing a literal account of events. Any more recommendations? :D


@Elmkast I'm glad you enjoyed it :) Ishiguro is really good at that unreliable-narrator style of writing, though I haven't any other recommendations at the moment.

Oh wait I do: Never Let Me Go, same author. I am still hoping to read more scifi like that. Less exposition, almost no technical explanations, all narrative. Most scifi authors obsess over alternative economies or engineering possibilities, but Ishiguro focuses exclusively on the lived experience of the resulting societies.
