Never let me go

This novel set in the 1990’s, England covers a controversial topic of science & ethics, where students of a private school are solely produced for the medical harvesting of their organs. As children they are protected from the ultimate truth. The main narrator Kathy, is now a carer of a donor & ultimately she’ll become a donor & complete her life. It’s not completely clear how this process happens. The narrator recounts in detail her interactions with fellow teenagers at the school & their attempts to understand their role in the big plan. The book is very detailed in narrative which does slow down the book , but is very touching too. I am ready to read Kazuo Ishigoru’s earlier books and all of them have good reviews.
