Never Let Me Go Review

5 Jul

Never Let Me Go is an unusual science fiction novel by Kazuo Ishiguro that is about a society that creates clones for organ donation to the non-clones, or “originals”. It begins with Tommy, Kathy and Ruth growing up and going to Hailsham, in England, which is a boarding school where the kids are not taught regular life skills or school subjects. Eventually Tommy and Ruth become “donors” and Kathy becomes a “carer”. Ruth later dies after her last donation, and Kathy and Tommy rekindle their relationship.

This book is intense, but a very good read. It’s filled with suspense and interesting settings and characters that make you want to read on and on. The strange themes and relationships make this book fascinating but relatable, even to a high school student like myself! It was very well written by Kazuo Ishiguro and it was not too heavy to read.
