Never Let Me Go is set in a universe that is almost like ours. In fact, so much that one wonders what makes us different, what it would take for the same thing to happen here. I don't want to give away too many details, but the protagonists are different, in what ways we only learn in the course of the book, which follows their life and their growing up from young pupils to their final purpose.

Never Let Me Go is incredibly well written, each character unique and human. The important questions in this book, the "Why" and "why does no one try to escape from this life" are never asked by the characters, and the protagonists, trying to learn about themselves, always know a bit more than the reader does. And so the reader constantly questions things, wonders, feels for and with the characters. I highly recommend this book, and I will definitely read it again in a while.

(if you want more details, read through the amazon reviews, but I chose to not spoil you here.)
