Never let me go by kazuo ishiguro is a science fiction type book, but a tricky one, because it doesn't seem sci fi ish. You start out reading the book, and think it is a normal book, with a woman in the 1990's reminicing about life going to a boarding school in the 70's. I don't know why, but I always like movies and books about boarding schools, even though I never went to one. But as you read on, you learn that there is something more to these children. The reader kind of learns along with the children, who don't fully know who or what they are. It's really creepy that way. It's a horror story in a sneaky sort of way, without the usual monsters or slashing or killers, and yet, with all that stuff in a way as well. I would definitely recommend this book. I can't help but feel like this is something that might come to pass in the future...
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro - There’s nothing easy about reading Never Let Me Go, but it is beautifully written and so thoughtfully tragic and wonderful
If you are here and have read or seen, Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, you are most likely to get what I am talking about. If you haven’t read or seen the book/movie I highly suggest you go to the nearest Barnes & Noble and purchase the book and obviously read it. Then rent the film, and engross yourself in its symbolism. I will begin with talking about the book because books are and always will be better than the films.
