"WHEN WE WERE ORPHANS is as intricately plotted as a conventional mystery novel....[It] will linger in the mind as an often fascinating, imaginative work of surpassing intelligence and taste."
Joyce Carol Oates, Times Literary Supplement, 03/31/2000Review:
"Ishiguro has chosen a careful Edwardian prose for his detective-hero; but he seems reluctant to establish a sharp or noticeable comic distance from it. It's like P. G. Wodehouse without jokes. His story insists that we sympathize with his orphans; his style refuses to let us. The result is an uneasy calm between crosscurrents. [I]t goes without saying that the novel is thoroughly artful and well orchestrated. But it does feel as though a distinguished author has found himself in the wrong lane here...."
