About the Book

*Kazuo Ishiguro’s new novel Klara and the Sun is now available to preorder*


One of the most acclaimed novels of the 21st Century, from the Nobel Prize-winning author

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize

Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewed version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now thirty-one, Never Let Me Go dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at the seemingly idyllic Hailsham School and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, Never Let Me Go is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.

'Exquisite.' Guardian
'A feat of imaginative sympathy.' New York Times

What readers are saying:

'A book I will return to again and again, and one that keeps me thinking even after finishing it. 5/5 stars'

'I loved it, every single word of it.'

'It took me wholly by surprise.'

'Utterly beautiful.'

'Essentially perfect.'
