內容簡介


◎布克獎、惠特布萊德獎、契爾特納姆文學獎得主 石黑一雄迄今最感人的作品
一段令人心碎、惴惴不安的愛情故事,
勾勒出一幅闡明人性的脆弱與希望、尋找鄉關何處的宿命風景,
而在平凡尋常文字間,呈現驚人真相的懸疑推理畫面……
海爾森一定有祕密!
就算你以為知道了真相,但裹著糖衣的「善意謊言」,到底有多真……
海爾森表面上看來是一所迷人的英國寄宿學校,遺世而獨立。學生皆能受到良好的照護與協助,並且在藝術與文學方面訓練有素,完全符合這個世界對於他們的期望。但是,奇怪的是,他們從未學習任何有關外面世界的事物,對於外界也少有接觸。
在海爾森的校區內,凱西從女童成長為一名年輕女性,然而卻要到了她和露絲、湯米兩位朋友離開學校這個安全國度以後,才真正明瞭學校的全部真相,而且逐漸明白記憶中無瑕的成長過程,處處皆是無法追尋的惶惑與駭人的問號;他們的壽命將會隨著「器官捐獻」而慢慢步入死亡……
一個扣人心弦的謎題和一則教人心碎的愛情故事,《別讓我走》可能是石黑一雄至今最感人、影響最深的一部作品。本書不但承襲了石黑一雄一貫的典雅文風,卻也尖銳的闡明人性的脆弱與希望,是一部巧妙融合了推理、懸疑、科幻與愛情元素的傑作。

Designed to meet the requirements for students at GCSE and A level, this accessible educational edition offers the complete text of Never Let Me Go with a comprehensive study guide. Intended for individual study as well as class use, Geoff Barton's guide:

- clearly introduces the context of the novel and its author;
- examines in detail its themes, characters and structure;
- looks at the novel in the author's own words, and at different critical receptions;
- provides glossaries and test questions to prompt deeper thinking.

In one of the most memorable novels of recent years, Kazuo Ishiguro imagines the lives of a group of students growing up in a darkly skewed version of contemporary England. Narrated by Kathy, now thirty-one, Never Let Me Go hauntingly dramatises her attempts to come to terms with her childhood at a seemingly idyllic school, Hailsham, and with the fate that has always awaited her and her closest friends in the wider world. A story of love, friendship and memory, Never Let Me Go is charged throughout with a sense of the fragility of life.
