Have your say: Never Let me go

The next book we will be reviewing in GP Book Group is Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro (Faber and Faber, ISBN 057122413X, £7.99)

In one of the most acclaimed and strange 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 31, Never Let Me Go hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at the seemingly idyllic Hailsham School — where life focussed on expression through art and countless medical checks — and her future 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. By the author of The Remains of the Day, and An Artist of the Floating World.
