Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Never Let Me Go:

The meaning of a donor's life.

My favorite Kazuo Ishiguro quote from the book:

"Maybe none of us really understand what we've lived through, or feel we've had enough time."

Questions to ponder while reading Never Let Me Go:

What type of people matter?

Who decides who matters?

My review of Never Let Me Go:

An exploration of the definition of humanity.

A horrific concept, creating people for their parts, the concept bugs me terribly.

Like Spares, the underlying concept gives me nightmares.
