Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: Never Let Me Go

Monday, September 28, 2020

This month, we'll talk about Kazuo Ishiguro's 2005 dystopian novel, Never Let Me Go.

Kazuo Ishiguro's heartbreaking dystopian novel: English boarding school students are faced with the horrors of their society and what it means to be human.

Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it's only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is.
