First one done: Never Let me Go

Finally i've gotten one off my list, and i can see why this book was shortlisted for the Man Booker prize 2005, and on the 100 books of all time list too. An exceptional complex book which i found hard to review without going into great detail, but if you want to read my review you can here and here

Just a little addition thought:

I think the power of Ishiguro's writing can be best summed up with this excellent quote :

"What I like in a good author isn't what he says, but what he whispers." Logan Pearsall Smith
