Never Let Me Go (2005) is a dystopian science fiction novel by Japanese-born British author Kazuo Ishiguro. It was shortlisted for the 2005 Booker Prize… the 2006 Arthur C. Clarke Award and for the 2005 National Book Critics Circle Award. TIME magazine named it the best novel of 2005 and included the novel in its TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005. It also received an ALA Alex Award in 2006. It was made into a film directed by Mark Romanek in 2010.” [wiki]

Kazuo has the strange skill of being able to subtly wrap ordinary circumstances in extraordinary settings. I got halfway through the novel without even realising it was science fiction. Never Let Me Go is an honest, wistful story of growing up and growing apart. I was lead to it via Ben Marcus’ reading of Kazuo Isiguro’s A Village After Dark for the New Yorker‘s Fiction podcast.  [here]
