Books: “Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

Let me state once and for all; Kazuo Ishiguro is my favourite author. His novel “The Remains of the Day” is alone worth the Nobel Prize, if you ask me.

“Never Let Me Go” , that I’m currently re-reading, is totally another kind of novel. It’s a kind of sci-fi novel but without spacecrafts and gadgets. It’s a heartwarming, and at the same time scaring, novel about friendship and a destiny of life totally different from ours.

Both mentioned novels are movies now, but I’ve chosen not to see them as I want to keep my internal pictures undistorted.

  1. I read “Never Let Me Go” recently and was drawn in from the first page. Kazuo Ishiguro is a master. His writing is breathtaking and leaves one aching for more. I shall have to put “Remains of the Day” on my must read list.
