A Sad Story.,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Never Let Me Go (Vintage International) (Taschenbuch)
This novel is about young people who are called special and they are all Hailsham students. Hailsham is some sort of an orphanage because the students don't have any family. They are clones and were created to donate organs to cure 'normal' people. Their life span is about 30 years and yet they get an education at Hailsham as if they were destined to a fulfilling live as intellectuals.
It's rumored among the students of Hailsham that when a boy and a girl love each other sincerely, they are allowed to have two years for themselves before the final stage of their short life. The two main characters find the person who can give the permission but she says that it was only a rumor, nothing more. This makes me angry and sad. Something you and I take for granted are not allowed to this persons and the fact that they are 'special' becomes an empty phrase. They were never given a fair chance to lead their own lives.
What is the meaning of this novel? I said that they were never given a fair change to lead their own lives but are we able to do so? We have our loved ones to take care of, we live in a troublesome society and we are easily destroyed by incurable diseases. Is our live better or easier? I believe that in the end, Kazuo Ishiguro has written a symbolic novel about the fragility of our lives regardless of what or who we are.
