The children there were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special, and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there? It is only years later that Kathy, now aged 31, finally allows herself to yield to the pull of memory and try to make sense of the past. What unfolds is an extraordinarily powerful story in which Kathy, Ruth and Tommy slowly come to realise that it is their seemingly happy childhood that has haunted them ever since, even tainting their adult lives. Part love story, part mystery, "Never Let Me Go" is a uniquely beautiful and troubling novel, charged throughout with a profound emotional depth.Hide synopsis

In turns both captivating and sleepy, "Never Let Me Go" is an atmospheric, tender, and heartbreaking story masquerading as a mystery novel. It is told in Kathy's voice, and her straightforward description of the facts of her life - with no explanation of unfamilar terms (which turn out to be unfamiliar ...
I'm an old man and have been a heavy reader for decades. I've read thousands of books. I say this to give weight to the following statement..."Never Let Me Go" is an original novel. For me, discovering originality of plot, of thesis, is exceedingly rare. The story is well presented; leisurely yet ...
This quiet yet disturbing story begins as the reminisces of a thirty-year old woman of her years growing up in a secluded boarding school called Halisham. It is the story of Kathy, her best friend Ruth and the passive Tommy, a trio that forms a shifting love triangle. At first the focus is on kids in ...
Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, man gotta wonder, 'Why? Why? Why?'
Found it described as a page turner, and I agree. The pace is steady though. The effect is to hold this book in the mind long enough to begin to care a good deal about the characters and their plight, which really is all of our plights ...
