Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham - an idyllic establishment situated deep in the English countryside. The children there were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special, and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there? It is only years later that Kathy, now aged 31, finally allows herself to yield to the pull of memory and try to make sense of the past. What unfolds is an extraordinarily powerful story in which Kathy, Ruth and Tommy slowly come to realise that it is their seemingly happy childhood that has haunted them ever since, even tainting their adult lives. Part love story, part mystery, "Never Let Me Go" is a uniquely beautiful and troubling novel, charged throughout with a profound emotional depth.

    Jag rekommenderar ändå att läsa boken, även om du sett filmen. Filmen är förvisso ganska heltäc... Läs hela recensionen

  2. Interesting story but unoriginal

    The writing style was not enjoyable for me. It was too jumbled and the language was repetitive. If the book had been better written I would have enjoyed it more.

    Enormt bra bok. Först förstår man ingenting....vilket är meningen. Jag hade väldigt många känslor när jag läste boken....ilska och "men-förstår-du-inte" men mest sorg.
