Definitely one of the best books I've read this year. Never Let Me Go had me mesmerized from the beginning and it only got better. I will say that it wasn't dystopian enough. if you're looking for in-depth world building with fascinating introductions to new concepts, this isn't for you. Under a tale of friendship and romance, there's a dark topic that will make you pause and think. The narration was very interesting to me, and the first person point of view was a great choice. The center of the story is Hailsham and the author didn't forget that. The characters were very well build, and even from the first person pov you could understand them enough to understand the motives of their actions. The writing was beautiful and it went well with the slow pace. Any part of the book didn't feel extra or stretched out, and the ending was nicely executed. For me, it was absolutely perfect. ( )
  iris.jer | Jul 24, 2021 |
While this novel was sad and strangely haunting, I was sometimes annoyed by the inexplicable self-absorption and introspection of the characters. It is gradually and subtly revealed that they are clones created solely for the purpose of donating organs, which they apparently do without questioning the system. The possibility of political revolt receives only slight consideration and is as quickly forgotten, and only near the end, when it seems too late for the protagonists. The whole logic of the premise is implausible, and the characters' largely unquestioning acceptance of the system is puzzling.

On the other hand, if one accepts the implausibilities, it's very evocative of the emotional states and social relationships of a very closed community. A love triangle dominates the plot, and I couldn't help wishing that this relationship had been set in more realistic circumstances.

Sorry, but I could get only a third through this. While the author seems to represent realistically the thoughts and dialog of some adolescents, it is superbly boring here. The subject matter, the harvesting of organs of living people, which comes into range about a third through the book, is ghoulish. It may remind the reader of his own major surgery. Same for the movie.

Stick with the author's Remains of the Day, a solid five stars. Making this novel even more disappointing. ( )
  KENNERLYDAN | Jul 11, 2021 |
2.5 stars, rounded down. A hard book to like, at least for me because while the writing was good, the story was not. The three main characters are in an academy until age 16, where they are very well schooled in a strict environment and isolated from the outside world. Readers are kept in suspense as to why. Eventually, they are sent out into the world, where they become donors, with some postponing these responsibilities by being carers first. The relationship among the three main characters is mostly vexing, and the events which shape their lives seem pretty random. ( )

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.

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.
