Never Let Me Go
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
A melancholically tinged coming-of-age story with a dark twist, Never Let Me Go tells the story of Kathy, a girl growing up on a bording school where not all is what it seems.
Ishiguro has also written The Remains of the Day, later made into a movie with Anthony Hopkins, and Never Let Me Go is spiced with similar undertones of regret. A captivating and at times chilling read – I flew through it in a few days. It was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
