Never Let Me Go: Kazuo Ishiguro

I wasn't sure about this book. I'd read reviews and knew what the big reveal was and didn't think I was going to be convinced by it. But I was. It's a book about denial, about horrors being glossed over- and the narrator's voice- flat, colourless, without affect- is a tour de force of subtlety and restraint.
