i LOVE this book. ishiguro’s writing style is eloquent and kept me reading more and more. the dreamt, nostalgic tone and idyllic settings contrasted with the gloomy reality of the characters’ situations is brilliant, and it leaves the reader with many thought provoking questions about those who are used for the luxury of other wealthier people.

"It had never occurred to us to wonder how we would feel, being seen like that, being the spiders."

"Maybe all of us at Hailsham had little secrets like that--little private nooks created out of thin air where we could go off alone with our fears and longings. But the very fact that we had such needs would have felt wrong to us at the time--like somehow we were letting the side down."
