NEVER LET ME GO stands out as one of the most remarkable books I have ever read. It is difficult to say whether this book is sci-fi or plain fiction. Whatever, it is unique in the sense that it would satisfies any high-minded reader who is versed with present day developments and what could happen in the future. The lesson learnt is that the meaning of life is best achieved when we find joy, joy which comes from the soul. That joy from the soul surpasses blind faith, unsubstantiated materialism and an idealistic purpose of life that is based on discrimination. Ishiguro successfully weaved this story through characters that we can easily relate to, characters who in their pathetic states mirror man at the height of his false sense of achievement. In its portrayal of the futility of life, I got reminded of DISCIPLES OF FORTUNE, FRANKENSTEIN, UNCONSOLED. This is a recommended read for a deep-thinking person.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Village of Waiting (Taschenbuch)
This beautifully written book that is set in Togo is an emotional account of a peace corps volunteer's experiences. Despite the reality of the place, the author found himself attached tothe soul of the people. He saw Togo from the angle of a lover of Africa. The writer is very descriptive and made it possible for the reader to relate to the story. This is the right book for those who have the desire to know about African life and the culture of the people. Coming from an outsider's view of an African country, one gets amazed by the insightful nature of it. You can also read The Usurper and Other Stories, Things Fall Apart, Disciples of Fortune,Triple Agent Double Cross, and Mango Elephants in the Sun.
