It s very important if you re intending to read this book that you don t read any reviews or listen to any talk about it first I had no idea what this book was about before I read it and the blurb gives you a very different impression actually and so I slipped easily into a story that was as engrossing as it was revealingIf you know something about what to expect though I don t think you ll enjoy it nearly as much It s a bit like an art installation that reuires audience participation you have to do your bit too to make it work so it makes sense so it tells the story it was meant to tell Keep yourself in the dark that s my advice Because of this there s no point in writing an actual review

Never Let Me Go

Ver Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel It is a gripping mystery a beautiful love story and also a scathing critiue 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 da. The thing I enjoy most about Ishiguro s writing is the sheer level of depth he gets into his characters he captures all the intensity of real emotions whether they are self serving or destructive His writing style is simple plain even but he builds up many layers within his storytelling to unleash the full symphony of conflicted feelings in powerful burstsHowever I saw none of his brilliance here Indeed for all his talent I don t think this novel was as effective as The Remains of the Day or even When We Were Orphans For me this is a lesser novel by a great writer This is his most popular work and his most critically acclaimed and I think that s only because of the particular themes he explores here This is science fiction but I prefer the term pseudo science fiction It s slightly futuristic but the fictional elements are relatively comparable to what man can do today Vivisection transplant is nothing new Organ donors are nothing new This book is very similar to the movie The Island 2005 where a select group of people have special clones bred for the singular purpose of providing them with replacement body parts What I find interesting is how these two were released so close together For me such forms of artifice reflect the worries and concerns of that decade Discussions over designer babies and animal rights issues in regards to testing transplants and cloning were often in the media If we look back to the Victorians the elements in the literature reflected the concerns of the age This is true for all literary movements I just used this one for an example but the point is I think this novel reflects an aspect of the time in which it was written And for me that s why I think it s worthy of study it s timely But did I enjoy it Not overly Do I think it is a success artistically and dramatically Not really For me the novel continuously fails to deliver The retrospective narrative remains detached from the happenings Granted the voice has lost all sense of hope and is looking back at a life of sorrow and incompleteness but it just didn t have a sense of life You could say that s because she is semi human in the state imposed on her but for me it was too despairing And that s coming from someone who counts Edgar Allan Poe amongst his favourite authors The inability of the characters to uestion the situation also somewhat puzzled me Surely they must have had some glimpses of thought that considered their present situation an injustice There was a lack of inuisitiveness into the morality of the situation And this when paired with their complete failure of recognising their own feelings about each other made the narrative feel slightly incomplete They didn t seem to look beyond their own situation As a reader we make our own judgement calls but where were theirs A certain emotional immaturity that bordered on the absurd ran through the work Overall I can see why this book is so popular But I don t think it s all that Ishiguro s other books are much accomplishedFacebook Twitter Insta Academia

Kazuo Ishiguro ☆ 4 Summary

E 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 itWithin 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 Ne. Ah fkin British writers My inclination to adore everyone from Evelyn Waugh to Charles Dickens from Alex Garland to Zadie Smith seems very ingrained VERY DEEP inside me primordial there must be SOME bloody reason why I find most English fiction so alluring I think it has mostly to do with mood It may linger deliciouslyThe best book I ve read all year though not including Graham Greene s The uiet American is about a microsociety of students in a boarding school hybrid named Hailsham While there they do rounds and rounds of arts and crafts and come of age together grow up yet there is something so not right with their seclusion and it takes page upon page to discover why it is that they are there It is horrific it is bizarre this secret is handled with so much craft that it is indeed this attribute that marks this outstanding uite brutal masterpiece apart from all others There is an incredibly subtle mastery of several different genres here Sci fi meshes impeccably with allegory which is played out in the manner of a Gothic romance Because the characters are trapped in all of this the end result is The Genre Supreme Tragedy I feel so bad for Ruth Tommy especially for Kath the wise but all too frail narrator but at least their petition which is the book s title is true This one is now on the list of all those I cannot let go or do without

    It is a pity that people are told this is a science fiction book before they read it I feel the least interesting thing about it is that it is science fiction I mean this in much the same way that the least interesting thing one could say about 1984 is that it is science fiction As a piece of literature I enjoyed it much than Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and even than Huxley's Brave New World The themes that make thi
