Never Let Me Go

32. I Want to Go Home by Gordon Korman (children's fiction, humour)

Another GK book I haven't read in a very long time. I loved his books so much as a kid, and it's a great comfort to discover that I enjoy them almost as much as an adult.

33. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (fiction)

This is the second book by Ishiguro that I've read, and it's only confirmed that he is one of my favourite authors. In terms of genre, it's akin to books like The Time Traveler's Wife, in that it explores science fiction concepts without really fitting into the genre. A dystopian novel, I guess.

The story is narrated by Kathy, a former student at Hailsham boarding school. As she looks back on her time there and her life since leaving, she draws the reader deeper and deeper into her word, gradually revealing details about the society she lives in, and about the two greatest friends she had at Hailsham.
