All children have to be deceived if they are to grow up without trauma

I can't even coherently describe my feelings after I closed this book. I also don't' want to give anything away. It is definitely a case of the less you know the bigger the impact. As a writer, it's very interesting to see how you can still weave such a magical text out of a limited vocabulary. Kathy, the protagonist is a simple, sheltered girl yet profound in her thoughts and feelings. The way Ishiguro manages to convey this with a basic use of words is a testament to his skill as a writer. No flowery language, no showing off. Please read this book.
