Product description

From the Booker Prize-winning author of "The Remains of the Day"comes a devastating new novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were. Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life. And for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special-and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go""is another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.

I had to read this book for my English class (I am 17) and at the beginning the book looked promising. It starts off very interesting and for the first few chapters I was enjoying it, but as I got to around the middle of the book it began to become ''dry'' the story was no longer exciting. I even stopped reading it for a while because I was so bored. After a while I had to force myself to finish it and it was a terrible ending. I'm not sure if this is because I'm a younger reader, but I really did not enjoy it. The book had potential to become a great story, but it fizzled out after a few chapters. The ending is not exciting and I am not looking forward to studying this book for the rest of the year.
