DescriptionIn one of the most acclaimed and strange novels of recent years, Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewered version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now 31, "Never Let Me Go" hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at the seemingly idyllic Hailsham School, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, "Never Let Me Go" is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.

Reviews for Never Let Me Go
Wow! What a concept
Is it any different to growing skin cells in a laboratory to the next step of creating clones for the purpose of harvesting their organs for "real" humans. I ummed, I ahhhed and I cried for these not quite people. This is a must read book, but be prepared to question any beliefs held on organ transplant from a dead donor via organ harvesting. Brilliantly written, I just can't work up the courage to read it a third time. by Suzy Wilson
I really loved this book! I couldn't put it down once I started reading it! You're given just enough information about what is actually happening to make you want to turn the pages and find out what exactly 'Halisham' is all about. Quite thought-provoking subject matter, and characters that are really relatable despite everything (once you have finished the book you'll understand what I mean!)
Really readable book - I would highly recommend it. by Jaclyn Smith
Never Let me Go
A very unusual tale. Took me a while to figure out what was actually going on with the characters. All very intriguing and a lot of thought. Would be interesting to see how it has been made into a movie. Definitely food for thought. by Wendy SEKULOFF
