Never let me go: Kazuo Ishiguro

I enjoyed this book. It reminded me of Oryx and Crake, and Children of Men. A dystopian future as told by a pybar. The first person narrative lends itself to an intimate view of the main character's life. The only thing is you feel like she is leading you to a grander revelation than there actually is. Although in one sense that leads to a more fulfilling yank at the end. The reader is left feeling incomplete, which may be the point. Definitely something to think about, although I wouldn't dwell on the technical aspects of the underlying story.

  • Just got it today! Will read on the exercise bike.

    I have no willpower, and can only exercise if I read.
