How is Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro?
it was kinda sad,slow but worth reading
It’s one of those books which moves very slowly, and to begin with you feel like nothing much is happening, but it’s so gentle and beautiful you don’t mind. By the end however you feel like a little part of you is forever changed. It’s surreal, and soft, and a tiny bit heart breaking.
It’s beautiful, challenging, thought-provoking and moving. All of Ishiguro’s books are written like dreams.
Oh! My favorite author. I absolutely loved this book.
It will stick with you for a long time.
Interesting premise. Enjoyed it.
Thought provoking and very very sad.
Nobel-prize winning material
Wasn’t a huge fan of the writing itself, but the story is amazing. It’s worth a read!
I really enjoyed this! Great story, very sad.
Slow moving and dreamy to start with. Immense sadness develops but the story is so beautifully written. Stays with you a long time.
Did not care for it at all.
I loved it! Very original premise. ( I think it’s called Never Let Me Go but I could be mistaken).
Very well done. Haunting.
It is a thought provoking kind of book. Really beautifully written. I think Ishiguro won the Nobel prize for literature last year.
Interesting, well-written and somewhat difficult.
@Laura Agreed. It didn’t grab me at all.
@Mark I felt the premise was great but not well done. There was so little that was actually explored. Most of the characters were so flat, I couldn’t care about them. So few glimpses of the moral issues or the emotions that arise from being forced into the situation. The rare times it happened, they were great, just too many missed opportunities
Loved it. So memorable.
It’s a moving, extremely well-written book. It’s also sad and depressing. Quite worth reading, despite its sadness.
Sad and depressing.
I read it a couple of years ago and still think about it from time to time.
One of my favourite books of all time. Amazing. Would highly recommend it.
Beautiful, sad and then very unsettling when you see where it is headed. Definitely stays with you for a bit afterwards and makes you think.
I cant believe how many books have the same title!
Couldn’t get into it
I loved it.
Wrenching. It will stay with you.
I haven’t brought myself to read it because I loved Remains of the Day so much!
A great book that sneaks up on you, and won’t let go; you won’t forget it.
It haunts me. Great book!
Loved this book it is one of my must read books
Excellent. I highly recommend it.
Lovely. Poetic, lyrical. Brilliant literature.
Loved it. I read it years ago and still think of it.
Its such a beautiful book.
I’ll be the dissenting vote. I did not like it.
Agree, spoiler alert, the premise made no sense, House and feed and educated (why educate?) them for 4 organs? What would that cost? And the dialogue of the clones was wooden and uninteresting.
Um, maybe a spoiler alert for those who haven’t read it?
I just didn’t get it…it was like a diary of a very boring person… I just never felt a connection at all ..bleh…
It is a disturbing read and film. But I do recommend it.
I disliked it and didn’t finish it.
Could not finish it…too creepy for me…
I had to read it for my Cultural Anthropology class in college. Because it was an assignment I didn’t like it as much as I think I would if I picked it up again now. Very creepy.
I was disappointed.
I loved this book. The story crept up on me, which intrigued me. I also like that with this author, things don’t have a perfect happy ending. It filled me with melancholy.
