In Kazuo Ishiguro's haunting and important novel, cloned children grow up with a single purpose: to donate their organs for the benefit of others. The narrator, Kathy H., takes us on a detailed and analytical journey starting in her early days at the Hailsham Boarding School and continues to the present day. Kathy's recollections are disturbingly flat and unemotional. As we listen to her, we enter a strange world where life has eerie similarities to our own, and yet is very different. That difference is inherent in our very definition of what makes a "human being." Ishiguro poses no ultimate solutions, but asks many questions about the path of scientific progress, its purpose and rationale, as well as its potential choices and consequences. Never Let Me Go explores the the nature of the human soul — for example, what it is and whether it is the key characteristic of being human.
