I saw the movie Never Let Me Go on TV yesterday and it's still haunting me today. Based on the book of the same name, this is dystopia, sci-fi at its best, in one sense, and its worst, in another.
Have you read the book and seen the movie, and what do you think? Should I read the book, which I have on Kindle, or will it just disturb me more? It's a great story and the movie was very well done, but.....I don't normally read dystopia!
Title: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ichiguro
Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Vintage; Mti edition (August 31, 2010)
A devastating novel of innocence, knowledge, and loss. As children Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were.
Now, years later, Kathy is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special–and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together. Suspenseful, moving, beautifully atmospheric, Never Let Me Go is another classic by the author of The Remains of the Day.
