Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is.… (mere)

When i first started reading it and hit the halfway mark, i must admit, i was underwhelmed. I was wondering what all the hype was about. Like most people who rated it 3 stars and below, i found the conversational style a tad of a chore to follow. I notice though that some of you did not even finish the book, that's a shame because i felt very differently as i moved towards the end of the book.

I realized that Ishiguro was doing certain very skillful things with his writing. By virtue of the first person narrative, we are pegged to Kathy's perspective and are always as clueless as she is. The one thing that made me realize that I needed to pay attention to what was not being said was this simple fact: she never said she loved Tommy. All that she did was cry when Ruth apologized. That was all the answer we needed.

The style and innocent start fooled me, i was taken for a slow climb that would result in an emotional plunge. Much like the very thing that makes the story especially painful; a slow, idyllic and innocent start before moving on to a more balanced state of being that recalls innocence lost and the final struggle to come to terms with mortality.

I picked this one up without really knowing much about it, but found it fairly easy to grasp the plot once it started rolling. It feels slightly less dystopian that one might expect since the narrator is limited in her scope; it reads very much as a coming-of-age young adult novel.

I think that the limited narrator makes the perspective on the idea of cloning for organs particularly interesting in the "twist" towards the end where Kath and Tommy confront Madame and Miss Emily tells them "As you say, why would anyone doubt you had a soul... we've come a long way since then, it's still not a notion universally held, even today." There are some interesting parallels to both historical and modern civil rights movements as well as asking the question, what is a person? ( )

haunting and a real page turner, beautifully written and it has left me with so many feelings ( )
  zacchaeus | Dec 26, 2020 |
Ishiguro crafts a picturesque boarding school world populated by seemingly normal students, with all the pettiness, mean-spiritedness and misunderstandings of everyday teens. However, it is clear from the start that something is subtly different about these children and the way they are being brought up.

The narrator of Never Let Me Go is Kathy H, a young "carer" in England. Throughout the novel she reminisces about her childhood, coming of age and friendships with Ruth and Tommy in an open, conversational style. She's a wonderfully developed character who holds your interest and sympathy throughout the book.

I won't say much else, so that when and, if you do decide to read this, everything can be as new and shocking to you as it was to me -a real page-turner.

This story was deeply sad, moving, and absorbing. It is one that will stay with you. ( )

This is only the second book by Ishiguro I've read but so far there is a distinct pattern. The books are narrated by a possibly unreliable narrator, and they focus almost exclusively on the past. The narrator talks about fragmented past events, leaving the reader to build a picture that fits. This style is not something I enjoy that much. I prefer a book where you feel like you are in the middle of events, rather than being a passive observer.

Some call this book science fiction, but don't expect any space, or high technology. The book might be set in the past even, but in a past where development was slightly different. The theme is more social or even religious. What makes us human? Not unknown in a science fiction novel, but I think much of this book could have been the same without the slight quirk that makes it "science fiction".

Ishiguro is extremely good at recreating the special, oppressive atmosphere of school (and any other institution, for that matter)—the cliques that form, the covert rivalries, the obsessive concern with who sat next to whom, who was seen talking to whom, who is in favor at one moment and who is not.

The eeriest feature of this alien world is how familiar it feels. It's like a stripped-down, haiku vision of children everywhere, fending off the chaos of existence by inventing their own rules.
tilføjet af DieFledermaus | RedigerNew York Times, Sarah Kerr (Apr 17, 2005)
 
"Never Let Me Go" is marred by a slapdash, explanatory ending that recalls the stilted, tie-up-all-the loose-ends conclusion of Hitchcock's "Psycho." The remainder of the book, however, is a Gothic tour de force that showcases the same gifts that made Mr. Ishiguro's 1989 novel, "The Remains of the Day," such a cogent performance.
 
This extraordinary and, in the end, rather frighteningly clever novel isn't about cloning, or being a clone, at all. It's about why we don't explode, why we don't just wake up one day and go sobbing and crying down the street, kicking everything to pieces out of the raw, infuriating, completely personal sense of our lives never having been what they could have been.
