You will find no space ships or aliens in Kazuo Ishiguro's masterfully written Never Let Me Go. This is science fiction for the rest of us, grounded and set in a world not entirely unlike our own. The characters as well are both intimate and familiar. Embark on a journey with them as you and they simultaneously discover the tragic truths behind their seemingly perfect upbringings. Read the book before you see the movie; the twist at the end is so much more rewarding on paper.
A reunion with two childhood friends draws Kathy and her companions on a nostalgic odyssey into their lives at Hailsham, an isolated private school in the English countryside, and a confrontation with the truth about their childhoods.
