Never Let Me Go
In 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 skewed 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.
