Book 43: Never Let Me Go by Kazou Ishiguro
I really wish I had a way of recommending this book with out giving it away and still impart the scope of what the story is trying to convey. And I wish I was able to express the wonders of Ishiguro's prose.
I want my friends to have the same experience with this book that I did. It is always a risk to recommend a book that had a profound effect on you and hope they have the same reaction.
The truth of it is, I just need to give them a copy, let them read it and see what comes of it.
I did also see the movie that was made of the novel. It was a good movie, but I didn't feel the intimate connection with Kathy I got from reading it. I think it would be hard to convey, but with that I would recommend the movie. I would definitely recommend reading the book before seeing the movie on this one.
