to stop the children of the poor being a burdenPublisher I m with you yep delinuents sounds goodK he wanted to stop them being a burden to their parentsPublisher Yep with youK and the CountryPublisher Yep a Thatcherite angle I think it s Maggie s time againK Anyway he had this idea that you could kill two birds with one stoneyou could end the kids misery and the poverty of their parents at the same timePublisher Let me guess you could eat them ha haK You ve read itPublisher No wait you re kidding me aren t youK No that s the whole point of the storyPublisher What eat your kidsK No not your own

bit out there KK I was thinking of updating it a bitPublisher How would you do thatK I was thinking I could tell the story from the point of view of a midwife whoPublisher Someone who has to care for the kidsK Yeah until they turn 12 months or somethingPublisher Let me guess then she hands them over to a child butcher or somethingK YeahPublisher Look I can see where you re going with this but it

Publisher It gets worseK No honestly I was thinking of Never Let Me Grow Publisher You mean likenever let me grow upK YeahPublisher Do you think you could turn the people into pigs or something you know like Animal Farm K I was sort of hooked on the idea of using people and narrating the story in a really dead pan voicePublisher I don t know about dead pan it sounds frying pan to meK If it s dead pan people won t be able to tell whether it s set in the future or the present They won t know how close to reality it isPublisher I just don t know what I think about this eating babies stuffK But it s like sci fi you can do anything in sci fiPublisher Look if we let you do this they won t be calling it sci fi they ll be calling it sci fryK If you let me do it I guarantee we ll be able to get Helen Mirren to play the midwifePublisher WhoK Helen Mirren you know the ueenPublisher No no Look if you can tweak it you know think about my idea for a second set it on Animal Farm make it about cloning pigs so they can grow body parts for other pigs or somethingK I know put some wizard animals in it and call it Hogparts Publisher Come on take me seriously K just clone it up and tone it downK I ll think about itPublisher I ll see if I can get Keira Knightley to voice one of the pigs K She s hotPublisher You could call it Never Let Me Go K What does that meanPublisher It s a song my mother used to play Jane Monheit sang itK I could get used to it Don t know what I think about the name Monheit though Publisher It does sound a bit German doesn t itK What would you think if I called her something English in the bookPublisher Like Judy BridgewaterK Who s Judy BridgewaterPublisher It s my mother s maiden nameK Sounds good to mePublisher Look I normally like to respect an artist s integrity but hey you re the artist so I guess that makes it OKK Do you think I could get to meet Keira KnightleyPublisher I think so look I ve been thinking about it maybe it s not such a good idea to turn Keira Knightley into a pigK Sometimes you can t really see the depth of your own characters until you can imagine who s going to play themPublisher So no pigsK No pigs I don t mind the cloning bit thoughOriginal Review April 16 2011Some More Serious ThoughtsI wrote the above dialogue before I even finished the bookI wanted to read the book before seeing the film which I will probably do in the next week or so during the holidaysWhen I wrote the dialogue I probably had about 50 pages to finish but the dialogue had taken shape in my head and I didn t want to risk losing itThere might have been a chance that it would be superseded by my final thoughts on the novel itselfI had high expectations that I would finally get to appreciate the novel when I had finished it and absorbed the denouementUnfortunately it left me feeling dissatisfiedNarrative StyleI didn t find the narrative style appropriate or convincingIt is told in the first person by way of recollection of three different periods of Kathy s lifeThe periods are discussed chronologically although during each period there are occasional allusions to each other periodThere is a lot of internal detail about each period what was going on in Kathy s headDialogue between the characters is infreuent and sparseThe novel is overwhelmingly an interior monologueOccasionally there are lapses or flaws in Kathy s memory that she self consciously draws attention toPart of me wanted to say to the author It s your story just get it right you can remember anything you like because you re making it up anywayBut then I guess we have to differentiate between Ishiguro and KathyWe have to expect some flaws in the glass rather than a word and memory perfect narrativeStill I was never really confident who Kathy was talking to it wasn t just an interior monologue there were occasional mentions of a you a second person to whom she was talkingIf you had sat down to tell this story to someone else I think you could or would have told the story far succinctly and selectivelyThe detail and the repetition of environment atmosphere and mood bulk up the painting but they don t add to the depthEach new layer of paint is superimposed on the previous layer so that while there might be a lot of paint on the canvas it is physically rather then metaphorically deepThe Geometry of LoveSPOILER ALERTWhile Kathy Ruth and Tommy live in an horrific environment perhaps a metaphorical euivalent to a concentration camp the novel deals with the uality of their humanity under these circumstancesThe guardians might have been trying to work out incidentally whether they had souls but ultimately what we learn is that the positive aspects of human nature can survive or prevail despite the circumstancesIt s interesting that the characters uest for love initially seemed to be motivated by a belief that it would postpone their donations and prolong their livesWhile this belief turns out to be mistaken Kathy discovers that love is worth seeking in its own right regardless of any conseuences or notions of cause and effectRuth promoted the belief in the life prolonging effect of loveIn effect Kathy acuiesced in it and never deliberately interfered in or disrupted the relationship between Ruth and TommyHowever when she comes to the end of the story perhaps she realises that she should have been less acuiescent and let herself express her love for TommySo ultimately Never Let Me Go is a love story a triangular one at thatLife is short you just have to get on with it you have to take your true love wherever you can find it even if someone else gets hurt in the processWhen we pair up in love there is always a chance that someone will miss out or get hurtThree into two won t goPerhaps this is actually calculus

Never Let Me Go Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Kazuo Ishiguro » 2 Review Download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free » Kazuo Ishiguro Llows herself to yield to the pull of memory What unfolds is the haunting story of how Kathy Ruth and Tommy slowly come to face the truth about their seemingly happy childhoods and about their futuresNever Let Me Go is a uniuely moving novel charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of our lives. I had this book on my TBR shelf for years without realizing that it was essentially dystopian science fictionThe main character is a woman in her early thirties reflecting back on her life as a child at a private school in England Kids in the school grew up in an isolated but almost idyllic setting not knowing their parents but realizing somehow they were special After finishing school they live together in small groups in cottages before heading out into the world on their own The story is set in the late 1990 sFrom the very first page we learn something is not right just from the language We read that they have become carers and donors their teachers are called guardians and later in the story a group goes out to look for an older woman who looks like one the school kids and might be her possible We also learn they can have sex but are incapable of having children and that after their third of fourth donation they have completed So we catch on pretty uickly what life has in store for these kids There are some genuine mysteries though Why does the school seem obsessed with encouraging them to do creative work giving them awards and collecting the best work to go to a gallery that they never see Where does it go and who sees it and whyMuch of the plot is built around a three way love story between a boy and two girls at school All three are good friends but the boy and one of the girls are a couple That girl is controlling and domineering and prevents the relationship between her boyfriend and the other girl from developing Late in life a romantic relationship develops between the other girl the young woman who is our main character and the now young man In fact she becomes his carer Is the love they develop better than it would have been years ago Or is it too late and stale This uote explains the title Because maybe in a way we didn t leave it the school behind nearly as much as we might once have thought Because somewhere underneath a part of us stayed like that fearful of the world around us and no matter how much we despised ourselves for it unable uite to let each other go I thought it was a good story it kept my attention all the way through although not uite as good as the author s best known work Remains of the Day

Never Let Me Go Free download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Kazuo Ishiguro » 2 Review Download Ç PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free » Kazuo Ishiguro Kazuo Ishiguro has been acclaimed in the Sunday Times for 'extending the possibilities of fiction In Never Let Me Go he has fashioned another remarkable story a story of love loss and hidden truths that takes its place among his finest workKathy Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham an idyllic establi. I can see Never Let Me Go being great for book clubs because it will generate a lot of discussionThat being said I didn t care for the book for a couple of different reasons The writing style is very conversational very much like you re having a discussion with the protagonist The thing that annoyed me the most about this was the fact that the things that happened so bob and I went walking to the store and we had a fight about the tree at school and then the writer would tell you about the tree and why it was significant then tell you about the fight This sort of device is interesting the first few times you see it but it started to annoy me over time Maybe because I talk like that and get off into tangents and anecdotesAlso at the heart of the store is the purposefate of the main characters I get the impression that the author wanted to drop clues about it and then reveal it so that it is a shocking twist who s Kaiser Soeze The thing is the references really aren t that subtle so by the time the twist is reavealed it s not all that exciting Not only that but I had so many uestions at the end Like these people know their fate but they never think to uestion it and in fact seem to be glad for itThis was supposed to be a coming of age story Generally coming of age involves people growing up and moving forward with their lives often they need to overcome some obstacle to reveal their potential However the characters seem to be stagnate the whole way through their fate doesn t change The blurb on the back of the book mentions that the characters Kathy Ruth and Tommy all have a shared background that s special and implies that they re lucky When two of the charaters confront someone to see if they can defer their fate they don t even bother trying to change it we find out a little bit of what makes their shared background special but we aren t given anything to compare it to we re just told that similar people have horrible existences but not how And they find out that they can t defer their fate but they don t really seem to care they don t even seem to be particularly glad that they triedI ve seen a couple of reviews compare this to book to Aldous Huxley s classic Brave New World and Margaret Atwood s The Handmaid s Tale Not even close In both of these books we re exposed to an alternate reality and we see how the main characters deal with their situations Kazuo Ishiguro tries to sneak the alternate reality into the story to take us by surpriseI could go on but I won t Let s just say that I didn t care for this book and leave it at that
