The Remains of the Day - Kazuo Ishiguro
From my memory - a beautiful, beautiful book. I loved the movie and picked up the book afterward, and found I loved it even more. Where the film focuses on the relationship of Stevens and Miss Kenton, the book in more introspective. It's told from Stevens POV, and he spends much time talking about what makes a great butler and whether or not he has the aptitude for great service. The ending of the book differs a bit in that I don't think it's as depressing. The movie seemed to imply Stevens lost so much at the end, but I didn't get that in the book.
