Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
In Never Let Me Go, our narrator, Kathy H, looks back on her childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school. She reminisces about her time there with her school friends and their subsequent life together. All is not as idyllic as it seems, however.
This is one of those stories that is best enjoyed if the reader knows nothing of the story in advance. Suffice to say that the author gradually reveals that ‘something isn’t quite right’ as each chapter progresses, leading to a compulsive page-turner and a deserved Man Booker Prize nomination.
Read the book first before you read any spoilerific reviews or watch the film - you won’t regret it.
