Never Let Me Go



Currently reading the novel. I was reading it from 2 months ago, but haven't got a chance to finished it, since, again, I am working. But no worries! I'll finished it ASAP! I can't wait to read my new books that I bought at Kinokuniya on last Sunday. Anyway, I was in a weird state at the moment. I got these butterflies in my stomach. That's not enough said, I know, but psstt.. I want to keep this for myself, sorry, fellas! Well, I won't share it for public, but if ya curious, you can ask me and I'll nicely tell you :p

When I think of that moment now, standing with Tommy in the little side-street about to begin our search, I feel a warmth welling up through me. Everything suddenly felt perfect: an hour set aside, stretching ahead us, and there wasn't a better way to spend it. I had to really hold myself back from giggling stupidly, or jumping up and down on the pavement like a little kid. Not long ago, when I was caring for Tommy, and I brought up our Norfolk trip, he told me he'd felt exactly the same. That moment when we decided to go searching for my lost tape, it was like suddenly every cloud had blown away, and we had nothing but fun and laughter before us.

The line above, which is narrated by Kathy is taken from "Never Let Me Go" page 169. One of my favorite paragraphs from the book. Now you're guessing why I took it and posted it here. Go, and figure it out yourself as I won't tell ya! *lipsaresealed* :p



I am leaving you with big question mark marked on your face. Need to get back to the book. See ya alligator!

I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it's just too much. The current's too strong. They've got to let go, drift apart. That's how it is with us. It's a shame, Kath, because we've loved each other all our lives. But in the end, we can't stay together forever. ― Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

    I found the movie too depressing to read the book :( Intriguing story though.

    You should read the book hun. For this one, I agree with you, watch first then read the book. Or else, you'll get a disappointment :) I found the movie was too short, and I want more details. It's a sad story and I just love Kathy and Tommy's chemistry...

    Oh really? Hmmm I think I'll try looking it up in the bookshop then.

    Usually I like reading excerpt/1st chapter just to see if I'll get bored by certain writing style. I can't stand long narratives with flowery adjectives xD

    Done with the book :) I'll make a review about it, if I am not too lazy :p

    Anyway, should I take the pics of the 1st chapter for you? :)
