Never Let Me Go
Never Let Me Go | Kazuo Ishiguro
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.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 its 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.Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.

This book was slow and the plot felt thin even though it was a really interesting concept. I still really enjoyed the story and characters in this. Fun read and can‘t wait to watch the movie

Kazuo Ishiguro is one of my favorite authors, I‘ve read three of his books and they are all so profound. He is also probably the best male author writing female characters that I‘ve read. This book is explores childhood and friendship in such a true and searing way. There is an overarching story/mystery that is fairly science fiction (similar to Klara and the Sun) but the heart of the book is really focused on the children and their relationships.

Okay, so I picked it up again this morning (with my morning coffee) and it felt like a chore. So… I'm safely putting this #BookSpin pick in the #DNF category.

I‘m curious to know how I would have responded to this book if I hadn‘t first seen the movie (which was quite some time ago). I found certain aspects of the story compelling but feel like it unfolded agonizingly slowly. I just didn‘t love it.

Second book for #AuthorAMonth @Soubhiville Let me justify myself, there are some authors that just don‘t work for some readers even when they are amazing writers with awards and admirers. Well, sorry to say that the three books I read by this amazing author, didn‘t work for me. Again, I see a great story, interesting characters but the story per se, is just a narrative of events. This one has an unexpected twist but it was so at the end⬇️

Gissy (Cont) this one was even boring to me until very at the end that had that twist. But I recognized that the prose is beautiful. An unpopular opinion. 3.5⭐️Maybe I should try another book by him🤷🏽‍♀️

Kathy describes her life at a secluded school for children with no parents along with two students who impacted her the most, Ruth and Tommy, and their lives after leaving the school. Their futures are predestined and mostly mysterious until the truth is slowly revealed. I wonder the most why they accept their fate almost without question, seemingly only to want to prolong their fate rather than thwart it. I expected to be impacted more than I ⬇️

Texreader was, it‘s a sad book. I saw the movie decades ago, so maybe knowing the “secret” going into the book caused me to not be quite as emotional as one would expect. Or, perhaps it‘s the type of story that is more emotionally gripping when portrayed by actors. It‘s a good book with an interesting narrative style. I also wonder if Kathy and Ruth were as irritating to anyone else? #authoramonth @Soubhiville 3mo

Unfortunately, I was really frustrated by this one. I was so focused on getting at the truth behind Halisham that I couldn‘t enjoy the relationship dynamics among Ruth, Tommy, and Kathy. I feel if it had been constructed a bit differently it would‘ve been an all-time favorite book for me. I‘m thinking about doing a reread in a couple of years now that I understand many of the parts that distracted me. #AuthorAMonth

Jess I love this one. Sorry it didn‘t work for you right now. Beautiful picture though! 4mo
Megabooks @Jess I‘m really curious if I‘ll enjoy more as a reread. I felt the same frustration when I read Klara, but I‘m hoping Remains of the Day will work better. I feel like he‘s an author I should enjoy more. And thank you! (edited) 4mo

BarbaraBB I didn‘t like Klara nearly as much as this one. My other favorites are The Buried Giant and Never Let me Go though I am not sure if I‘d still love the latter as I did years ago: it was my first dystopian read and I read it back to back with The Handmaid‘s Tale and a new world opened up for me! I was blown away! 4mo
Megabooks @BarbaraBB I think I‘ll just read this and Remains this month, but Buried Giant sounds interesting, too! 4mo

2023 Reread
This is one of my favorite books. If you have not read it, it is best to go in completely blind.
There is so much depth to this book. Kathy H is a standard protagonist which works so well in this world. Each time I reread I am shocked at how much of a mean girl Ruth is. The dichotomy of them makes the relationships fascinating. And the entire story itself, who the children are is so subtly creepy it is perfect.

Ruthiella I thought it was incredible. My first Ishiguro, but he is now become a favorite author. 6mo

Would I have continued to live if I, too, knew the ending of my life to be like this? How would it feel to know that even the action of ending my own life would not alter the ending to my existence; that I would remain to be a donor, implying that my life had no meaning? Could I ever miss something, like the ability to divert from a set pathway, I never knew? Then again, having this ability now myself, how much of it have I exercised anyway?

This is an odd one. I can see exactly how NEVER LET ME GO wants me to feel about itself, but as of Part I‘s end I don‘t think it‘s generated a strong enough connection between myself and the characters that I can produce the desired response. Maybe it‘s because the book is older and famous and I knew what was going on from page 1; maybe Ishiguro‘s prose is too understated for my current mood.

I might drift away. We‘ll see how Part II goes.

Tamra I bailed on this one. In fact, the only novel I‘ve liked is Remains of the Day. Truth be told, I ADORE the movie adaptation. 10mo

While not a lot happens story wise, emotionally this is a tender and endearing story about childhood, memories and perception. There is a sci-fi element to it, which is quite horrifying when you think about it, but the less you know going in, the better.

It‘s easy to see, in terms of tone and style, that this is the same author who wrote Klara And The Sun. They‘re like two halves of the same whole. If you liked one, you‘ll enjoy the other. I can‘t speak to the 2010 film adaptation – I haven‘t seen it yet – but this is an intense, smart, compelling read with a lot to say about the reality we live in.

I have yet to be disappointed by Ishiguro; his novels are masterful. In Never Let Me Go, he builds this alternate world, yet grounds it so solidly in our own as if he has seen something that we always tend to overlook. And I suppose that‘s the point: the idea that we will turn our heads when we are faced with something that disturbs us. Yet, here, we are forced to look, and to think, and Ishiguro dares us to turn away, knowing we can‘t this time.

Not for me. This narration was a bit dry and the story uninteresting. The big bombshells were slightly inserted and not really discussed in a manner appropriate for the topic. It's slow going, and I kept waiting for something to happen. It seems Ishiguro is a good author, it's just the story didn't do it for me at all. There was so much more that could have happened with this odd topic but it was just accepted as normal behavior.

I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it‘s just too much. The current‘s too strong. They‘ve got to let go, drift apart. That‘s how I think it is with us. It‘s a shame, Kath, because we‘ve loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can‘t stay together forever
