Review of 'Buying God' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

<spoiler>This is really three short books in one: a survey of theology typologies, a theology of consumerism, and some practical steps to take. The first of these sections is brilliant, but unfortunately is not connected strongly to the other two sections.</spoiler>

Kazuo Ishiguro, 宋佥: 克拉拉与太阳 (Hardcover, Chinese language, 2021, 上海译文出版社)

克拉拉与太阳 by ,

克拉拉是一个专为陪伴儿童而设计的太阳能人工智能机器人(AF),具有极高的观察、推理与共情能力。她坐在商店展示橱窗里,注视着街头路人以及前来浏览橱窗的孩子们的一举一动。她始终期待着很快就会有人挑中她,不过,当这种永久改变境遇的可能性出现时,克拉拉却被提醒不要过分相信人类的诺言。

在《克拉拉与太阳》这部作品中,石黑一雄通过一位令人难忘的叙述者的视角,观察千变万化的现代社会,探索了一个根本性的问题:究竟什么是爱?
