There was a lot to enjoy about this book and it is absolutely about the most English of settings - a retirement home. Not just any retirement home though, this is a whole community of people who are not done yet.

Review: The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
This is a short tale, apparently simple in nature, of a butler taking a short trip to meet and old colleague and encourage her to return to their place of work. But it contains a real depth to the character of Stevens - a fastidious man who is so focused on dignity and the role of the "great" devoted butlers that his life has, in many respects, passed him by.
