Never Let Me Go

I read this years ago but apparently didn't make a record of it. Posting here for completeness! I like Ishiguro, although I think his best work is all in a similar vein (many authors are!). This is one of my go-to examples of a good unreliable narrator; she's innocent but not stupid, and the slow reveal of the mystery feels earned and obvious, not a stupid rug pull. Also it's kind of sweet.
