Three best friends, Kathy, Tommy, and Ruth, have known each other since they were little. They attended Hailsham, a private school, on the English countryside. Everything seems normal for the children, they go to class, attend church, eat lunch, and exercise, but they didn’t know that their teachers were hiding a huge secret: the children are clones that will start donating all of their organs, when are teenagers, until they complete.
Ishiguro brilliantly portrays the love and loss that the children go through in their everyday life. He gives the reader a false sense of hope that leads them to an end that they will never forget. Never Let Me Go is an extraordinary story that brings realization to the beauty of life, and the importance of living in the moment.
