Kazuo Ishiguro shows off his amazing storytelling technique in this novel, following Kathy from her childhood at Hailsham Boarding School to her adult life beyond it. Throughout the novel, you are filled with this sense of looking back, on reflecting upon Kathy’s childhood and how it has affected her relationships beyond Hailsham. Kathy spends the novel dissecting her childhood and trying to piece together the intricate puzzle which is her life and the meaning behind it.
This novel will keep you mesmerized from the first to last page. Moving, lovable and haunting throughout, Never Let Me Go is a novel for anyone who is looking for a book to literally reach out from the pages and touch them.
