never let me go was a boring paint by numbers dystopian science fiction novel which borrowed all of its most interesting ideas from other books that did it better. it also made no sense (why is there such a demand for organ transplants? how does the benefit of having a ready supply of organs outweigh the massive, ridiculous cost of raising people? etc etc).

edit: also, there is no big takeway. most good books don't have a takeway..

if i was less exhausted id make a long post explaining why remains of the day was so amazing, but for me it really captures perfectly the idea of certain institutions being suited to certain times in history. also think of this: he justified his life as a servent by believing that he helped a great man contribute the world, and it turned out that not only was the man not great, his entire way of life collapsed along with his employer's ambitions. its an extremely depressing novel, but it does end with at least a glimmer of hope.

 I didn´t read "never let me go" but did see the movie, and I wondered that for a while after watching it.

ruin what?

never let me go is the island with less action and more boring scenes of depressing british people reading books in glum surroundings. if you remove the scifi/fantasy themes, it's a lot like a soulless remains of the day.
