A review by eliel
Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro

challenging dark emotional mysterious reflective sad slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? No


A partly interesting story written in an extremely slow way. The characters didn't captivate my attention. The ending disappointed me.

+ beautiful writing
+ nice world-building
+ interesting story (in theory)

- slow
- boring character plots

I just prefer Klara ans the Sun over this book.
