Set in a darkly skewed version of contemporary England and narrated by Kathy, Never Let Me Go tells the story of three childhood friends coming to terms with their lives at Hailsham School and the fate that awaits them all.

It took me a few pages to get into this book but once I got to grips with the flow of the story I was hooked. The narrator tells the story in a way that reveals little bits about Hailsham School and the lives of the three friends in snatches so, as a reader I was forever guessing and trying to work out what would happen, which is exciting.

It is quite a dark and disturbing story and I'll remember it for a long time. I'm going to keep the book on my bookshelf and resist swapping it or giving it away. It's one of those books that I want to read again in a few years and see what I can gain from a second reading.

Brilliant and thought provoking and I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best books I've ever read.
