Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked the narrative mechanism Ishiguro used to tell the story: Kathy's voice, subtle, moving backward and forward in time, like she had sat down to tell you the story. I also though the layering aspect of the novel, spreading detail upon detail to build up the plot, was excellent. But something fell flat for me by the end; once you had the "soylent green is people" moment, it seemed to fall flat after that, and I came away wondering what it was all about. "Sound and fury" writing.
