Time for your bedtime story...

"Kathy, Ruth and Tommy grew up together at Hailsham, a seemingly idyllic school deep in the heart of the english countryside with a dreadful secret at its heart. Now thirty-one, Kathy attempts to come to terms with her childhood at Hailsham and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world."

I have just finished one of the best books I have ever read. It is called 'Never Let Me Go' by Kazuo Ishiguro. It has recently been made into a film which has now been released on DVD (starring Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightly and Andrew Garfield) However, having not watched the film yet.. I recommend the book first. Ishiguro has written this book so well, that even with a rubbish storyline (which it isn't.. at all!) you would be hooked! This book is fictional, and  the later parts appear to be set in Kent, which is where I live so from the descriptions I could guess the places being written about. This aside The book is amazing, the storyline is fictional however it raises ethical issues about science (what a bore... right?) but not in an obvious way.. I cant say much more without giving the whole story away. so I will posts a trailer link ( Never Let Me Go Trailer ) If your not a fan of reading, I recommend the film because it looks amazing and the idea is very good. This gets my thumbs up!

Until Next Time
