Dystopian meets Victorian Sentimentalism.

Other books Never Let Me Go reminded me of:
1. Klara and the Sun
2. Bleak House

This book was really interesting, and for once I kind of guessed some of the twists/reveals ahead of time. I kept expecting the book to get suddenly more intense or sad, and though of course it was sad, I never came close to crying. It's almost like the mystery distracted me from how sad it was. But! Overall it was written well and it's a powerful book. Not sure I'd recommend it, but I definitely don't regret reading it.
