Fiction Science

I just finished a fabulous novel: Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go. Ishiguro wrote The Remains of the Day, and while this shares the exquisite sadness and beautifully-drawn characters of the 1989 novel, it's really nothing like it.

Never Let Me Go is more like Harry Potter meets The Handmaid's Tale. I won't say any more, because I don't want to spoil the story.

But if you like Harry Potter & Margaret Atwood, I highly recommend this one, too. Lemme know what you think.
