Review: Never Let Me Go

Never Let Me GoNever Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Never Let Me Go is a good book. It's sci-fi, but decidedly not sci-fi. It kind of feels like, in tone, anyway, an emo Handmaid's Tale. The story is very confusing until you realize just what's going on, and when you do, it all peels apart like a satisfyingly sweet onion. It does have its slow parts, but I like the author's restraint and patience. It could have been a disturbing story, but it turns out being heartfelt instead A fascinating book. Give it a read.
