Book review: Never Let Me Go

Just in time for the film’s release I have finished Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go book. The book is beautifully written, although one that you certainly need to pay attention to. The main character Kathy H. talks you through her life, but constantly has to jump back and fourth – for you to understand something that happened in one memory she has to tell you something that happened before, and before that and so on and so on. What is also beautiful about this book is that you are never really told all the details about these children where they come from or what they have to donate, but you are allowed to figure it out for yourself.

It’s not one to read before you sleep as you won’t be able to put it down and you really want to be paying attention but it makes a perfect commuter’s read.

Check out what I thought of the film adaptation.
