Default Re: What book are you currently reading?

The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's set in mythic Saxon England, when the land was mostly wild and people could still encounter ogres or other dangerous creatures. It's set in a town where there's a kind of collective perpetual amnesia, where their memories are all fragmented and dreamlike and fade quickly over time. People rarely agree about what happened in the years or months or weeks past, when they speak about the past at all. The protagonists are an older couple about to embark on an important journey to their son's village, but they don't remember why it's important or how to get there.
