Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

The blurb on the back of this book really gives nothing away, so I feel honor-bound to be somewhat circumspect – suffice it to say this book is at all about what I thought it would be. Ishiguro does an excellent job of drawing you into the story and provides just enough hints to allow you to figure out what’s really going on at a satisfying pace. (An interesting topic for discussion might be: why didn’t Kathy, Tommy, and Ruth just run away?) As in The Remains of the Day, he gets a lot of mileage out of a restricted narrative voice, although the weirdly stilted (stylized?) dialogue was a little distracting at times.
