You know those random stock characters in sci fiaction movies the ones who never get names or any lines They re always spending their precious few minutes of screen time getting shoved out of the way as the hero hurtles desperately down a hallway or watching from a safe distance as a climactic fight goes on or diving out of the way whenever a murderous cyborg smashes through their office window Have you ever wondered what those people s lives were like Have you ever thought to yourself Man this movie s interesting and all but I want to know about that guy who owned the hotel where Sarah Conner hid from the Terminator I bet he leads a fascinating life believe me he doesn tImagine if someone decided to write a book about this kind of person The result is Never Let Me Go semi spoilers ahoy you ve been warned So the book is about a sort of alternate universe England where people are cloned and the resulting kids are raised in isolated boarding schools spending all their time painting and playing sports and getting vague hints about how when they get older they ll have to make donations We learn eventually and with no drama whatsoever that these kids were created specifically as future organ donors and that s all they re meant for Ishiguro introduces us to Kathy the narrator and her friends who lived at one of these schools with her Ruth and Tommy As I said we gradually and laboriously learn about the school s real purpose but it seems almost like a subplot because the majority of the book is just Kathy nattering on about her school and how she and Ruth got into a fight this one time and also she had a crush on Tommy but he and Ruth were dating so Kathy had sex with some other random guys and oh my god can we get back to the organ donor thing Seriously the whole book is like that we get the sense that there s some creepy futuristic stuff going on in the background but our protagonists don t care because they re too busy telling us about that one time Kathy lost her favorite cassette tape and it was very upsetting Even when it seems like a plot s about to start it s always a false alarm The trip to a nearby town that the three characters take to find a woman they think may be Ruth s possible a person she may have been cloned from doesn t pan out and we realize that the real point of the trip was an attempt to convince the reader that Tommy and Kathy have some sort of romantic attraction to each other Ruth s possible and everything it might have meant is abandoned so that Ishiguro can have another chance to demonstrate his astonishing inability to create any kind of chemistry between two characters And the end Without giving anything away I ll just say that Kathy and Tommy finally get all the answers about their school and what was actually going on and they respond bygoing about their lives in the exact same way as before I mean good God Even though this is supposed to be some sort of intellectual science fiction I don t care There s cloning and dystopian undertones ergo it is sci fi And I like my sci fi loud shiny and dramatic with lots of explosions and computers that talk There s a reason Harry Potter starts when he gets his Hogwarts letter folks Because no one wants to hear about ordinary people being ordinary that s kind of the whole point of fiction

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

Imagine a restaurant London mid 2003Publisher Hey K we need another novel and we need it uickK I know I knowPublisher Another Remains of the Day Something Hollywood can turn into a hitK I m working on itPublisher Any ideasK Well I ve been reading some Jonathan SwiftPublisher WhoK You know Gulliver s Travels Publisher Oh yeah Jack Black It s in pre productionK Well he had a modest proposal about how 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 kids other people s kidsPublisher How could anyone do itK He goes into that stewed roasted baked or boiledPublisher YuckK He even talks about making them into a fricassee or a ragoutPublisher It s a 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 all sounds a bit grotesueK That s the whole point It s an allegory for our timesPublisher I just don t know whether it s got legsK Legs You re kidding meit s got every damned limb and organ you can think ofPublisher I don t want to think of it I can just imagine the reviews They ll call it The Remains of the Meat Tray K Ha I hadn t thought of that I was going to call it The Remains of the Creche 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 rather than geometry but you know what I mean
