From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it’s only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is. Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.

Designed to meet the requirements for students at GCSE and A level, this accessible educational edition offers the complete text of Never Let Me Go with a comprehensive study guide. Intended for individual study as well as class use, Geoff Barton's guide: - clearly introduces the context of the novel and its author; - examines in detail its themes, characters and structure; - looks at the novel in the author's own words, and at different critical receptions; - provides glossaries and test questions to prompt deeper thinking. In one of the most memorable novels of recent years, Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewed version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now thirty-one, Never Let Me Go hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at a seemingly idyllic school, Hailsham, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, Never Let Me Go is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.

How GCSEs are assessed has changed: from summer 2017, students are not allowed to take a copy of the text into the exam. This means that the first hurdle is to have a clear and close understanding of the plot and the structure of the novel. This study guide will help you to do that - and so much more. Gavin's Guides offer the most detailed plot and character analysis on the market. Discover how Ishiguro chooses particular words and phrases to shape your response to what you read. Understand the role of key themes, including fear, memory, sex and death. Learn how to write clear, effective essays. This book has been designed to inspire and support students (and their teachers). If you are sitting AQA, WJEC or OCR - there are extra guidelines for you. I am an Oxford University English graduate and personal tutor working in the Cotswolds area. Each week, I help my pupils to maximise their potential so that, when they sit the exam, they can raise their grade. I hope this book will help you to do the same too. Use it through your course, to help as you study in school or at college. Use it again in the final weeks before the exam. As a further service, anyone who buys my book can email me direct if they have any "night before" questions still outstanding. "Never Let Me Go" is a unique and demanding book to study. This Gavin's Guide aims to increase your understanding and enjoyment - plus your exam success.
