The B.A.A. has selected Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro as our next "group read". Ishiguro's book is haunting, both in his subject matter and his writing style. As a reader, the story envelopes you - and you find yourself part of the unraveling truths that the main character discovers, as she reflects upon her years as a student in the cloistered world of Hailsham, a private school where studetns were always told they were "special". Now they are discovering what "special" really means. The B.A.A. welcomes new memebers- we meet Wednesdays after school. Stop by the IMC to pick up a copy.

  1. When I narrated the book to myself, I found myself interpreting it as a sort of robotic sort of innocence. Like her brain has been fixed or something. Sort of like all those other books in which innocence is the narrator, like "To Kill a Mockingbird" or "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" in which there are close to no interpretations and the mind is very limited.
    Still, this book is deep and incredible.
