Never Let Me Go, Kazuo Ishiguro

Almost necessitated the creation of an even more atrocious rating. The unique perspective utilized by the novel saves some respect. Otherwise this is a total bomb.

The plot goes nowhere for way too long, and then becomes obvious midway through. With nothing to look forward to, the reader is shamelessly dragged along for a while, hoping that the characters will at least began to have some personality.

Doesn’t happen and by the end everyone- you included- is the worse for the experience.
