Designed to meet the requirements for students at GCSE and A level, this accessible educational edition offers the complete text of Never Let Me Go with a comprehensive study guide. Intended for individual study as well as class use, Geoff Barton's guide: - clearly introduces the context of the novel and its author; - examines in detail its themes, characters and structure; - looks at the novel in the author's own words, and at different critical receptions; - provides glossaries and test questions to prompt deeper thinking. In one of the most memorable novels of recent years, Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewed version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now thirty-one, Never Let Me Go hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at a seemingly idyllic school, Hailsham, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, Never Let Me Go is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.

  1. Minnen och förändring, del 4
    Björn Järnhäll, 26 juli 2018

    Kathys vårdande av sina minnen ger mening åt hennes och hennes vänners förbestämda och korta liv. En bisarr, mycket ömsint och fantastisk berättelse om livet och betydelsen av minnen. En tankeställare för unga, och en nödvändighet för oss gamla som lever på minnen. Det bästa Ichiguro skrivit och därmed bland det bästa skrivits överhuvudtaget.
