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.… (mais)

  Shelldrome | May 22, 2024 |
A strange, thought-provoking book. ( )
  Abcdarian | May 18, 2024 |
Considering I have a natural distaste for a lot of contemporary literature (with some reasonable exceptions), especially books that are way too matter-of-fact to be taken seriously, I must say that this novel was a pleasant surprise. But in terms of the book itself, that's about as far as the pleasantry goes here. There is a certain ominousness which surrounds this book from start to finish, but you, as the reader, never quite pick up on it until it strikes you like a snake in the grass. Ishiguro's delivery is exquisite yet distinctly human, which may be accused as being overly simplistic from a non-writer's standpoint, but the result is a masterfully subtle commentary on human nature represented at its worst. The writing style and general ambience, in fact, reminded me a bit of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, another novel which is quite simple when viewed outwardly, but encompasses a structure which is buttressed with a series of seemingly unrelated events which strengthen the consummate whole. Ishiguro is very much deserving of the Nobel for this novel alone, not to mention anything else he's written (which I've yet to read). ( )

Another book that I had looked forward to reading and ended up disappointed ( )
  thatnerd | Mar 2, 2024 |
A real page turner. You know from the beginning something is wrong with the characters, but you do not find out for some time ... The novel raises good questions about what we choose to do as a society. ( )

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.
adicionado por DieFledermaus | editarNew 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.
