Descripción del producto

Críticas

"'Ishiguro is the best and most original novelist of his generation.' Susan Hill, Mail on Sunday"

Descripción del producto

In one of the most memorable novels of recent years, Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewered version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now 31, Never Let Me Go hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at the seemingly idyllic Hailsham School, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, Never Let Me Go is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.

If you enjoyed Never Let Me Go, you might also like Ishiguro's The Remains of the Day, now available in Faber Modern Classics.

I got to read a book by Ishiguro this year for the first time. This is the second one I read and, so far, I can say he is already between my favorite authors. His writing is simply brilliant, the stories are amazing and there's a sensibility to his words that make me enjoy every single page of his books, hoping for them to never end. I'm looking forward to start with the next one.

A veces no podemos evitar que aparezca algún inconveniente en el pedido. Esto se puede deber a factores que no están a nuestro alcance. Cuando por la otra parte encuentras todo la ayuda, apoyo y sobre todo, celeridad en solucionar el problema. Eso es algo realmente importante. En resumen me ha sorprendido gratamente el trato amable que he recibido.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Completely Unique Novel To My Experience 10 de diciembre de 2016
Por FCD117 - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
There were parts of this novel l that I liked very much. I agree with other reviewers that the story seemed to take a long time to develop and also seemed very slow at other times. I also felt the story was, at times, unnecessarily sexual. Having said all of that, this is a very good story and a very unique novel. The dilemma I face is not wishing in any way to be a "spoiler". The novel is about children being raised without traditional families, as commodities.

What is unique about the novel? It has a "Kafkaesque" aspect to it. There are some bizarre issues that go completely unexplained. But at the same time, it is less stark and more human than some of Kafka's works. It seems dystopian, but still, at times, has a strong sense of humanity. There is a lot of very nuanced aspects of relationships that put me in mind of Tolstoy's "Anna Karenia", strictly within the aspect of nuanced relationships. In a manner of speaking, this is also a "coming of age" novel, and in that context, reminded me of "A Separate Peace", which has little or no sexuality involved.

I read this book on Kindle while, at the same time, listening to it on audiobook. The narrator was Rosalyn Landor. She was excellent and this added to my enjoyment of the book.

The novel made me think about ethical issues that we could all be facing in the not too distant future. The book is very human as it really illuminates the souls and humanity of many of the characters, when it is clear that it may be more expedient not to think of these individuals as real people at all. This is the first work I had ever read by Katzuo Ishiguro. I have already purchased another novel of his. I am very glad I had a chance to read this book. Thank You...

Ishiguro is an excellent writer. If you just want to see how words flow, this is the book for you! The story is intriguing and real. It could be considered somewhat a tale of science fiction except the reader knows this could be closer to the truth than one would like to believe. The students that go to the boarding school described are taken care of quite well except for the fact that their existence rests on the vitality of their body parts, one could see this as a book relevant to all young adults and teens(and all those in the throws of organ transplants). It is a well crafted text and one I will always remember reading as the moral and ethical dimension are worth the pondering.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Very good book, a bit depressing, but well-written and makes you think and feel a lot 18 de octubre de 2016

I listened to this on audio tapes years ago. I remember it was a captivating story, unlike any I'd ever read. The author writes in a very distinct style, and the main character really feels genuine, so much so I was surprised it was by a male author.

That said, I found the tone of the book, reading it instead of listening to it, quite somber. Slightly depressing. But still engrossing. (I purchased this for my Kindle recently, so I'm reading it again as opposed to listening to the audio version, and it seems more bleak).

In short, I feel it is well written, there is a little bit of suspense, and well-developed characters that keep the unusual book going at a decent pace. There are a lot of allusions, because the main character is often talking about the past, so she doesn't quite remember everything exactly and doesn't quite know what to make of things because she sees things differently as she matures. It's interesting to read her thought processes.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Well-Intentioned But Slow-Going and Done Better Elsewhere 27 de julio de 2014
Por J. Jamakaya - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I almost gave up on "Never Let Me Go" at midpoint but I sensed that something would come of the story so soldiered on. It requires a lot of patience due to its muted tone and almost deadening pace. I don't agree with reviewers who have said it could have been told as a short story but it certainly could have been condensed into an 80-page novella and been just as effective. That the book raises important questions about society and life and death and science and fate is admirable. That its style prevents many readers from finishing it, let alone understanding it, is a serious flaw.

I'm not sure why Ishiguro made some of the choices he did. The restraint employed in telling the story added to the uneasy sense of fate closing in but also distanced me from the sad outcomes of the characters. In contrast to the slow-going narration of the first 250 pages, the climactic scene includes a gush of narrative explanation that seemed clumsy and tacked on. Like other readers, I was disturbed by the complete passivity of the characters. On the other hand, a less literal reading suggests that the book is not about the exploitation of human clones at all but about the mundane ways most people muddle through their lives and blindly accept their fates.

"Never Let Me Go" reminded me of a great episode of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" called "The Measure of a Man." It involved the character Data, an android, having to prove his sentience to avoid being declared Starfleet property and being dismantled by order of a government bureaucrat. The stories are a little different, yet issues like the state's abuse of power, the value of artificial life - in this book, human clones - and the dignity of all life are similar. The TV show handled these themes compellingly in a 1-hour episode that haunts me 25 years after seeing it. As well-intentioned as the author is, I don't think that will be the case for this book.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Misguided Story 8 de mayo de 2014
Por Duke - Publicado en Amazon.com

[Note, there are spoilers in this review!! Just a fair warning!!]

This is a tricky book to review. I didn't mind the plot and I was somewhat moved by the story. It is a credit to Ishiguro that the real strength of the book was the complex and meaningful relationships between the characters. For example, Ruth-Tommy-Kathys' relationship was powerful and moving because it very much mirrored the relationships that many young adults and teenagers have. This relationship was portrayed (in a realistic fashion) as being complex and messy, just like many "coming of age" relationships are.

So, why the low review? Well, I guess I just have to come out and say it.....the whole cloning/sci-fi/dystopian England aspect (dare I say theme?) of the book really diminished from the overall quality of the story. The strength of the book, in my opinion, was the aforementioned relationships between the characters. And while the cloning bit did provide an interesting backdrop for the story, it also detracted from the characters (what I mean is that at times I found myself engrossed by the characters and their actions....only to have a somewhat clumsy reminder that they are clones and this is a "fake" England--which in turn ruined the realism of the relationships and caused me to "put distance" between myself and the characters).

Finally, and this is perhaps my most serve critique of the cloning/dystopian elements of the book, there was a head-scratching lack of fight against "fate" by the characters. For example, why didn't anyone (including Kathy) try and "escape"? Why was that option not even discussed? The characters were hoping to get a deferral....but they weren't willing to try and disappear or flee to another country? Seriously, I'm not saying there needed to be a big flight but the sad, resigned-to-fate actions of the characters really just seemed lazy and frankly inhuman. This, more than anything, really highlighted to me the flaw with including the cloning aspect of the story. I'm not against making the characters clones but it just would have made more sense to me that if Ishiguro was going to develop their human traits that he would have developed all the traits--including considering the possibility of seeking a different fate. This was especially puzzling because the characters would discuss their futures if they could have "normal" lives (example--Ruth talking about working in an office somewhere).

As a result, the book just felt uneven and left me unsatisfied. I'm not saying I need an action story but I do need some sort of explanation for actions!
