Never Let Me Go

Finished this amazing, heartbreaking book in a few days. It's bound to be a story that stays with you, that keeps you thinking. Kazuo Ishiguro is a genius. I loved the conversational tone of first person narration and the way the story of the donors unfolded. I felt the most for dear old Tommy and his drawings of animals.

Trying to decide whether I want to see the movie adaption. David and Margaret didn't find it 'terribly affecting'...

  1. Isn't it AMAZING. He rocks my literary jocks. I did see the film. Usually not a fan of seeing films of books I've enjoyed, but I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. Sweet performances, nice paced film and nice to visually explore the themes of the book. I'd recommend it.
