Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Thia was a well written but disturbing story by the author of The Remains of the Day. Kathy lived at Hailsham, a private boarding school in England where the students are sheltered from the outside world. When she is reunited with two of her schoolmates when she is in her early 30's, she begins to remember and relive her years at Hailsham and the dark secret behind the seemingly idyllic life there. I rate it 4 out of 5.

That description does sound disturbing! I'd feel a sense of dread while reading the book and would have to "encourage" myself to read it. But you must have liked it or you wouldn't have rated it 4 out of 5. There are some books that are worthwhile to read, that I'm happy I've read, but that don't have the most cheerful of subject matter and I might not reread them. Reading can be so enriching, can't it?

Hello Cheryl! I'm your newest follower. I stumbled across your blog through The War Through The Generations Challenge. Also, just am so loving it that you made a stand against blog awards. I've been blogging over 5 years, such hard hard work, such dedication that is put in to a blog.....and I have 3. So many never receive an award, or accolade. Blogging must be done out of love for your subject.
