Never Let Me Go (Movie Tie-In Edition (Vintage International) by Kazuo Ishiguro
Never Let Me Go (Movie Tie-In Edition (Vintage International)

This book is a devastating commentary on loss, love, and friendship. I love the Ishiguro's exploration of a compressed life cycle and its repercussions. Putting myself in the positions of Kathy, Tommy, and Ruth was a frightening experience and witnessing the gradual acceptance of a cruel and forced lifestyle was very powerful for me. I highly recommend this book but only if you are prepared to grapple with self-reflection and the three dimensional conflicts of these lovely characters.
