it was amazing

I picked up Never Let Me Go because it is on the 1001 books list that I'm trying to tackle. Imagine my delight when I realized it was also a sci-fi-ish novel! Don't misunderstand. There is nothing specifically scientific whatsoever in the novel. The "science" bit of sci-fi is implied, hinted at and finally somewhat revealed, but never do we know the true ins and outs of the situation.

The most fascinating part of this book, I felt, was exploring the children's capacity to love when they themselves had never been loved. This book does a phenomenal job exploring the ethics of genetic research without appearing to do so.
