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)

"Non Lasciarmi" è un romanzo che piega i generi letterari a proprio piacimento, lo si può leggere come un romanzo di formazione, come una distopia o, come fa lo scrittore americano Ramsey Campbell, come un horror. Possiamo essere d'accordo con una qualunque di queste categorizzazioni, ma l'autore riesce comunque a trascenderle tutte rendendo la sua opera qualcosa di diverso.
Nonostante la complessità della sua collocazione, "Non Lasciarmi" può essere considerato romanzo facile, da divorare in un paio di notti di lettura compulsiva, ma quando il lettore abbasserà il libro dopo averne letto l'ultima riga, non potrà fare altro che fissare il vuoto per qualche minuto scuotendo lentamente la testa, turbato a vita.

My opinion of this book changed many times while I was reading it. Interesting (if basic) concept, moderately interesting characters, slow-moving plot.

The way the story was organized (the rambling and somewhat cyclical narration) often annoyed me, but in the end I think it was a good choice. It served to endear the clone narrator to the reader, to make it seem like someone was casually telling you the story of her life, as she approached the beginning of her death. It might have worked better as an audiobook, but in text, it was not my favorite approach. I wanted to stop listening to Kath every time the she said, "that's why I was so [emotion] about what happened next," or "but to explain that, I'll have to go back several weeks."

My only real "problem" with this book is that I never enjoy coming-of-age stories, and despite the speculative fiction element, that's all the story was. ( )

Dithering between 2 and 3 stars. I read this because I heard the author on the radio and he sounds like a really nice man, and he is obviously well regarded. However I was pretty disappointed. You can guess the direction and the central point of the book as soon as the word 'donation' is used - which is page one. So no mystery there. He writes well but it's pretty repetitive and the tone never varies. Yes the protagonist is looking back, from a single point in her life, but you'd think her mind would be a bit more than a dull monotone. The worst problem is that he does not construct a world that is believable in any way and even within the bounds of what he does construct you keep yelling at him that the characters wouldn't behave like that. And the worst worst problem is that there is no politics. You can't center your book on this issue and get away without that. ( )

Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time.

Kath was a student in an exclusive boarding school in an imagined late 20th century England. Her narrative focuses on her long-lasting relationships with fellow students Ruth and Tommy. Through a series of dreamy flashbacks, she tells us how they discovered their purpose in society and struggled to find meaning in their lives.

Kazuo Ishiguro's novel highlights a moral dilemma, but I don't want to include a "spoiler" so I'll just say be prepared to think deeply about what it means to be human.

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.

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.
