really liked it
bookshelves: literary-fiction, science-fiction
Read in March, 2008

This was an awesome read. A delicate combination of the English schoolboy (well, girl, in this case) novel and the sort of dystopian science fiction that veers only a tiny bit from our reality. Ishiguro (who also wrote the Remains of the Day) does an amazing job of bringing in the important, subtle details about the world and the narrator slowly, almost imperceptibly, so that the reader's realization of what is going on doesn't suddenly dawn but slowly grows. (I recommend reading this story as unspoiled as you possibly can be for it.)
