The book is about Stevens a butler in Lord Darlington’s house. When Mr. Darlington dies, the house is sold to an American gentleman who spends most of his time in America. He suggests to Stevens that he should take a few days off. Stevens decides to travel around England for 6 days. During this journey he spends most of his time to remember the good old days.
As I started reading this book I thought it might be a boring one, instead it turned out to be an emotional and heartbreaking journey for me as well. You will not find a lot of action in this book. I would say it’s a sad story of what didn’t happened. What really makes this book a great read is how well detailed Steven’s personality, emotions and thoughts are described. Every sentence is simply perfect. Definitely must read for those who don’t mind a slower pace.
