Never Let Me Go
by Kazuo Ishiguro
In BriefIn their protected English boarding school, Kathy, Ruth and Tommy seem to enjoy privileged and happy childhoods. But none of the students have families, and their education and care feature disturbing anomalies. It isn't long before they must confront – and dutifully accept – the horrible truth of their existence and the fate that has been preordained for every one of them.
Why you should read itPart science fiction, part love story, part inquiry into medical ethics, this profoundly moving novel is ultimately a masterful study of mortality and the human condition.
