Ishiguro, Kazuo, 1954-

Never let me go /​ Kazuo Ishiguro. - 282 pages ; 20 cm

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. 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.
This is a remarkable story of love, loss and hidden truths. A novel charged throughtout with a sense of the fragility of our lives. Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham - situated deep in the English countryside. The children were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there?
