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 skewered 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, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends 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.

    Bu əsər haqqında düşüncələrim çox qarışıqdı. Onu deyə bilərəm ki, oxuyarkən və xüsusilə, əsər bitdikdən sonra qəlbinizin sızlamaması imkansızdır. İlk başda, sadə bir əsər olduğunu, sadəcə xüsusi internat məktəbində yaşayan uşaqların xatirələrindən bəhs etdiyini düşünmüşdüm. Lakin ortalardan sonlara doğru çox kədərli bir hekayə ilə baş-başa olduğumu anladım. Yazar insanlıq, mərhəmət, qəddarlıq, dostluq və sevgi məsələlərini tamamilə fərqli bir yöndən izah etmişdir❤

    She told Roy that things like pictures, poetry, all that kind of stuff, she said they revealed what you were like inside. She said they revealed your soul.”

    I can see now, too, how the Exchanges had a more subtle effect on us all. If you think about it, being dependent on each other to produce the stuff that might become your private treasures—that’s bound to do things to your relationships. The Tommy business was typical. A lot of the time, how you were regarded at Hailsham, how much you were liked and respected, had to do with how good you were at “creating.”
    Ellaine Manlapazhas quotedlast year
    “Quiet” places were often the worst, because there was always someone likely to be passing within earshot. And as soon as you looked like you were trying to sneak off for a secret talk, the whole place seemed to sense it within minutes, and you’d have no chance.
