'Never Let Me Go'
I rattled through 'Never Let me Go' by Kazuro Ishiguro last week in preparation for this week's cinema trip. It was fantastic; heart wrenching, warm and utterly human. This is a book I would recommend it to most people, (even if it's only so I can point out that the writer went to the same university as me.)
There has been some speculation that the film version couldn't possibly measure up to Kazuro Ishiguro's beautifully crafted words. But, in my experience, the presence of Kiera Knightly couldn't possibly sully my appreciation of anything. I am fairly certain her beauty would prevent her from butchering even my favourite book! And, Carey Mulligan seems like a good fit for the character of Cathy.
Here are some wonderful photos of the two of them, (taken from the 2011 January and February editions of UK Elle.)
