The Most Captivating Instagram Snaps of Kazuo Ishiguro’s ‘Never Let Me Go’

Instagram (@_rereading)

To this day, Kazuo Ishiguro‘s Never Let Me Go is still one of the most staggering works of dystopian adult fiction I have ever read. Though I unintentionally watched the flick adaptation before I understood there was a novel, I can truly attest that Kathy, Ruth and Tommy’s tumultuous friendship-turned-love triangle is equally crushing on the page as it is on-screen. Ishiguro’s fastidious account of the bitterness that often follows unrequited love and untold secrets is executed flawlessly in what I personally consider his best masterpiece yet.

About Never Let Me Go:

As children, Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy were students at Hailsham, an exclusive boarding school secluded in the English countryside. It was a place of mercurial cliques and mysterious rules where teachers were constantly reminding their charges of how special they were. Now, years later, Kathy is a young woman. Ruth and Tommy have reentered her life, and for the first time she is beginning to look back at their shared past and understand just what it is that makes them special—and how that gift will shape the rest of their time together.

In honor of Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, here are just a few of the coolest Instasnaps we’ve seen!

Review…📝 Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. This is the best book I have read this year. I thoroughly enjoyed it form start to finish. The story revolves around a group of students, particularly three, Kathy, Ruth and Tommy, at a school called Hailsham. Life at Hailsham appears somewhat idyllic at first but as the years go by, an underlying and terrifying fate awaits it's students. This novel explores the theme of friendship quite triumphantly. I found it fascinating. It also explores fate and mortality. I could relate to this novel in ways that are hard to even explain; Those awkward silences, those things said and left unsaid. It is also a love story under the most tragic of circumstances. Never Let Me Go left me reeling after I finished the last page. It is quite frankly a most unforgettable story and it left quite a mark on me. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #bookandhand from @hillyreads 📲👍 #review #neverletmego #kazuoishiguro #instabookstagram #bookstagram #instabooks #bibliophile #blog #blogger #bloggergram #bookblogger #bookblog #instadaily #bookphotography #buch #movies #films #reading #collection #me #ireland #irish #like #love #follow #manreads 📖👌

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, although published only 12 years ago, will surely be considered a literary classic. Kathy, Ruth, and Tommy spent their formative years at Hailsham, an English boarding school where students are nurtured toward their “special” purpose. The purpose, as the reader will learn, is morbid and heartbreaking. This book is often characterized as science fiction for reasons I will not spoil, but it is certainly literary and not what you might think of when you think of science fiction. #rdhs #books #bookstagram #book #bookworm #bookclub #booklover #bookblogger #bookblog #bookphotography #bookoftheday #library #librarian #librariesofinstagram #literature #literary #japan #japanese #japlit #scifi #neverletmego #ishiguro #dystopia #dystopian @pastrywithjenn

Going to dive into this book. I have seen some mixed reviews. People who have really loved it and people who have had some strong negativity for this book. What are your thoughts? ••••• "We took away your art because we thought it would reveal your souls. Or to put it more finely, we did it to prove you had souls at all." ••••• "Memories, even your most precious ones, fade surprisingly quickly. But I don’t go along with that. The memories I value most, I don’t ever see them fading." ••••• "You have to accept that sometimes that's how things happen in this world. People's opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process." ••••• "It was like when you make a move in chess and just as you take your finger off the piece, you see the mistake you've made, and there's this panic because you don't know yet the scale of disaster you've left yourself open to." ••••• #shelovestoread #goodreads #ilovebooks #ilovetoread #booklover #igreads #instareads #bookblogger #reading #iheartbooks #bookstagram #bookinsta #bookworm #instagood #instabooks #booksofinstagram #bookphotography #bookstagramfeatures #bookishfeatures #photooftheday #currentlyreading #neverletmego

Right now I'm #currently reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo #Ishiguro. I've been wanting to read this book for months and now school has given me an opportunity to so so. I don't know aaaaanything about this #novel; you should know I like to read without looking at the back cover of books. I've enjoyed it so far because I don't understand anything that's going on. 🙆🏽 I hope to finish it at some point of this day or tomorrow morning at latest. . . . #100daysofproductivity #studygrammexico #bookstagram #bibliophile #neverletmego #literature #englishliterature #englishmajor #engliteraturestudent #frontcover #glasses #motivation #studyinspo #studyspo #unam

By this time, kids at school here is excitingly anticipating their most awaited vacation. I'm kind of jealous of the fact that they get to enjoy summer. They will probably have picnic at the beach, maybe swim at a public pool, or just have a vacation at their aunt's place. 🏊 😎☀️🌊 Gahh! That's the way it is I'm sure!

You have to accept that sometimes that's how things happen in this world. People's opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process. Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go . . 🌷 Day 22 #febbookstagram *became a movie (or will) . 🌷 This is such a heartbreaking story I have yet to read but can't find the time or courage to do so. First, my current available time allows me to only do some light reading, and second, I know how painful it is to live through the pages of this book. Probably one day but definitely not these busy days. 😊 All I can read for now are nonfictions and poems. I believe that it takes longer time to digest, savor and relish fiction/fantasy. . 🌷 Survived my eighth day of no-rice diet and I can't believe how an extreme 'ricist' like me can still survive and stand eating meals without my most precious steamed RICE. 😂 My goal is to lose 10 pounds (lbs) before April. I know I can do it with proper diet and exercise!!! 😇 . . #neverletmego #kazuoishiguro #dystopiannovel

How is that, when trying to bring up memories of the past and of our innocent childhood…we always have that feeling of deep sadness as we realize we're getting farther away, and never coming back, from those happier days and long lost friends? How often do we have that wishful thinking of not growing up instead, hoping for a Great Rewind that will bring us back to everything we've lost? Now imagine the point-of-view of a clone, as she is getting closer to the inevitable tragedy that awaits her kind, and NO, this is not sci-fi! 📖📖📖 Checked one of my Bucket-Reads (!) FINALLY ever since I've experienced the unforgettably melancholic movie version starring Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightly as Hailsham students Kathy, Tommy and Ruth respectively. Reading the book after seeing a movie is a welcome rediscovering of Ishiguro's masterpiece! Now I want to watch the movie again! 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My 7th READ this year! The next one's gonna be…in the tradition of heartbreaking tragic fiction, also with a movie adap…David Nicholls' ONE DAY. ♥️ #neverletmego #kazuoishiguro #faberandfaber #paperback #generalfiction #books2movies #finishedreading #readingchallenge #goodreads #LeroyReads #februaREADS

#LoveLetterstoLiteraryCharacters 💜💜💜 Dearest Tommy, I should have never written because you'll probably never read it. But I guess it's never too late to let you know. Kathy and Ruth loved you in their own ways but they couldn't save you. I, on the other hand, was there all along. I understood your tantrums and fears. I saw past through the silence and glances. And despite your frustration, I believed that your art was too beautiful for the gallery. In the end though you chose her and I let you. You and I were meant for something greater than Hailsham, it's too bad you didn't see that. In another time, we might still get that chance. When I finally go to Norfolk to seek for lost things, I hope I find you there. Always, Marie #books #read #neverletmego #bookworm #kazuoishiguro #loveletters
