    Kazuo Ishiguro(Author)

In one of the most memorable 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.

If you enjoyed Never Let Me Go, you might also like Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day, now available in Faber Modern Classics.

A master stoyteller ... In this deceptively sad novel, he simply uses a science-fiction framework to throw light on ordinary human life, the human soul, human sexuality, love, creativity and childhood innocence. He does so with devastating effect. (Independent)A gothic tour de force . . . An oblique and elegaic meditation on mortality and lost innocence. (The New York Times)Ishiguro's Booker-shortlisted sixth novel stays with you for days, spellbindingly sad and dismaying. (Evening Standard) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Review Text

  • By Queenbee on 8 September 2017

    Whilst for many this author is the bees knees I was quite disappointed in this book. The writing is great, quite conversational and detailed. It taps into what it is to be a human but I due to spoilers in the reviews (which I didn't read but others referred to them) I kept waiting to be surprised but sadly wasn't. Beautifully written but if you want a satisfying ending, then this isn't the book for you.

    This is a very interesting book exploring an alternate Britain with a dark side from the perspective of one woman.I struggled to put this book down and would certainly recommend it to others.

    A beautifully written thought provoking book. This book is not science fiction or about the rights or wrongs of cloning. Cloning is a subject matter that remains controversial and for most people unacceptable. The author uses this premise in order to explore how what should be unacceptable (e.g. war, famine, nuclear weapons - whichever the reader chooses) is accepted if we are brought up to believe this is 'normal' The fact that some readers found this book disturbing underpins what the author is trying to say. A brilliant read that was difficult to put down

    Very intriquing plot which takes some time before understanding what's actually going on. Certainly keeps you reading and turning over the pages...
