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)

I went in knowing nothing about the book except that it received alot of praise so I'm not gonna reveal much except to say the story deals with a host of issues like mortality, friendship, loss, and growing up. There are some science fiction elements but they are never at the forefront. The plot is slow moving but the prose style keeps you fully engaged. Mr. Ishiguro does a skillful job of dropping subtle hints throughout the various anecdotes that at first, may not seem too important in the present context, but in a larger context reveals the complexity of the characters and helps advance the plot.

Some of the science fiction stuff isn't fully explained. Because of this, the premise and situations portrayed in the book are somewhat unrealistic. Although this can be forgiven because it doesn't serve as a crux to the central themes. The protagonist who is narrating the story, likes to abruptly jump to different parts of the timeline when recounting her life that it may seem confusing. However I didn't find it a big deal.

I left feeling sad and moved. Mr. Ishiguro has masterfully crafted a story that on the outside seems simple, but is full of nuances and depth for the keen reader. It is a difficult book to review thoroughly without giving spoilers so I suggest you go in without any expectations and discover for yourself the magical and cruel world Mr. Ishiguro has created. ( )

I’m clearly in the book-reading minority by proclaiming that I enjoyed Ishiguro’s “Klara and the Sun” much more than this highly-acclaimed book. I have a difficult time fathoming how one national media outlet proclaims “Never Let Me Go” one of the best novels of the decade. Sure, it’s well-written, has an intriguing plot and raises some thought-provoking ideas. But the book also gives new meaning to the term “slow-burner.” The story dragged almost to the point where I wanted to stop reading it a couple times. I didn't "connect" with a couple key characters. Overall, the book was a letdown. ( )

Lovely, thoughtful, and sad meditation on mortality with a sci-fi lens. ( )

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.
