رفته به ح رمان تکان‌دهنده‌ای ر می‌یابند که چرا موسسه‌ی «هیلشم» آنان را از کودکی پناه داده است؛حالا که در در و دشت رانندگی می‌کنم، هنوز چیزهایی را می‌بینم که مرا یاد هیلشم می‌اندازد شاید از کنج مزرعه‌ای مه‌آلود بگذر Imagine a restaurant London mid 2003Publisher Hey K we need another novel and we need it uickK I know I knowPublisher Another “Remains of the Day” Something Hollywood can turn into a hitK I’m working on itPublisher Any ideasK Well I’ve been reading some Jonathan SwiftPublisher WhoK You know “Gulliver’s Travels”Publisher Oh yeah Jack Black It's in pre productionK Well he had a modest proposal about how to stop the children of the poor being a burdenPublisher I’m with you yep delinuents sounds goodK he wanted to stop them being a burden to their parentsPublisher Yep with youK and the CountryPublisher Yep a Thatcherite angle I think it’s Maggie’s time againK Anyway he had this idea that you could kill two birds with one stoneyou could end the kids’ misery and the poverty of their parents at the same timePublisher Let me guess you could eat them ha haK You’ve read itPublisher No wait you’re kidding me aren’t youK No that’s the whole point of the storyPublisher What eat your kidsK No not your own kids other people’s kidsPublisher How could anyone do itK He goes into that stewed roasted baked or boiledPublisher YuckK He even talks about making them into a fricassee or a ragoutPublisher It’s a bit out there KK I was thinking of updating it a bitPublisher How would you do thatK I was thinking I could tell the story from the point of view of a midwife whoPublisher Someone who has to care for the kidsK Yeah until they turn 12 months or somethingPublisher Let me guess then she hands them over to a child butcher or somethingK YeahPublisher Look I can see where you’re going with this but it all sounds a bit grotesueK That’s the whole point It’s an allegory for our timesPublisher I just don’t know whether it’s got legsK Legs You’re kidding meit’s got every damned limb and organ you can think ofPublisher I don’t want to think of it I can just imagine the reviews They’ll call it “The Remains of the Meat Tray”K Ha I hadn’t thought of that I was going to call it “The Remains of the Creche”Publisher It gets worseK No honestly I was thinking of “Never Let Me Grow”Publisher You mean likenever let me grow upK YeahPublisher Do you think you could turn the people into pigs or something you know like “Animal Farm”K I was sort of hooked on the idea of using people and narrating the story in a really dead pan voicePublisher I don’t know about dead pan it sounds frying pan to meK If it’s dead pan people won’t be able to tell whether it’s set in the future or the present They won’t know how close to reality it isPublisher I just don’t know what I think about this eating babies stuffK But it’s like sci fi you can do anything in sci fiPublisher Look if we let you do this they won’t be calling it sci fi they’ll be calling it sci fryK If you let me do it I guarantee we’ll be able to get Helen Mirren to play the midwifePublisher WhoK Helen Mirren you know the ueenPublisher No no Look if you can tweak it you know think about my idea for a second set it on Animal Farm make it about cloning pigs so they can grow body parts for other pigs or somethingK I know put some wizard animals in it and call it “Hogparts”Publisher Come on take me seriously K just clone it up and tone it downK I’ll think about itPublisher I’ll see if I can get Keira Knightley to voice one of the pigs K She’s hotPublisher You could call it “Never Let Me Go”K What does that meanPublisher It’s a song my mother used to play Jane Monheit sang itK I could get used to it Don’t know what I think about the name Monheit though Publisher It does sound a bit German doesn't itK What would you think if I called her something English in the bookPublisher Like Judy BridgewaterK Who’s Judy BridgewaterPublisher It’s my mother’s maiden nameK Sounds good to mePublisher Look I normally like to respect an artist’s integrity but hey you’re the artist so I guess that makes it OKK Do you think I could get to meet Keira KnightleyPublisher I think so look I’ve been thinking about it maybe it’s not such a good idea to turn Keira Knightley into a pigK Sometimes you can’t really see the depth of your own characters until you can imagine who’s going to play themPublisher So no pigsK No pigs I don’t mind the cloning bit thoughOriginal Review April 16 2011Some More Serious ThoughtsI wrote the above dialogue before I even finished the bookI wanted to read the book before seeing the film which I will probably do in the next week or so during the holidaysWhen I wrote the dialogue I probably had about 50 pages to finish but the dialogue had taken shape in my head and I didn't want to risk losing itThere might have been a chance that it would be superseded by my final thoughts on the novel itselfI had high expectations that I would finally get to appreciate the novel when I had finished it and absorbed the denouementUnfortunately it left me feeling dissatisfiedNarrative StyleI didn't find the narrative style appropriate or convincingIt is told in the first person by way of recollection of three different periods of Kathy's lifeThe periods are discussed chronologically although during each period there are occasional allusions to each other periodThere is a lot of internal detail about each period what was going on in Kathy's headDialogue between the characters is infreuent and sparseThe novel is overwhelmingly an interior monologueOccasionally there are lapses or flaws in Kathy's memory that she self consciously draws attention toPart of me wanted to say to the author It's your story just get it right you can remember anything you like because you're making it up anywayBut then I guess we have to differentiate between Ishiguro and KathyWe have to expect some flaws in the glass rather than a word and memory perfect narrativeStill I was never really confident who Kathy was talking to it wasn't just an interior monologue there were occasional mentions of a you a second person to whom she was talkingIf you had sat down to tell this story to someone else I think you could or would have told the story far succinctly and selectivelyThe detail and the repetition of environment atmosphere and mood bulk up the painting but they don't add to the depthEach new layer of paint is superimposed on the previous layer so that while there might be a lot of paint on the canvas it is physically rather then metaphorically deepThe Geometry of LoveSPOILER ALERTWhile Kathy Ruth and Tommy live in an horrific environment perhaps a metaphorical euivalent to a concentration camp the novel deals with the uality of their humanity under these circumstancesThe guardians might have been trying to work out incidentally whether they had souls but ultimately what we learn is that the positive aspects of human nature can survive or prevail despite the circumstancesIt's interesting that the characters' uest for love initially seemed to be motivated by a belief that it would postpone their donations and prolong their livesWhile this belief turns out to be mistaken Kathy discovers that love is worth seeking in its own right regardless of any conseuences or notions of cause and effectRuth promoted the belief in the life prolonging effect of loveIn effect Kathy acuiesced in it and never deliberately interfered in or disrupted the relationship between Ruth and TommyHowever when she comes to the end of the story perhaps she realises that she should have been less acuiescent and let herself express her love for TommySo ultimately Never Let Me Go is a love story a triangular one at thatLife is short you just have to get on with it you have to take your true love wherever you can find it even if someone else gets hurt in the processWhen we pair up in love there is always a chance that someone will miss out or get hurtThree into two won't goPerhaps this is actually calculus rather than geometry but you know what I mean

با قسمتی از خانه‌ی بزرگی را هم چنان که از دامنه ی تپه‌ای پایین می‌آیم، یا حتی دسته‌ای سپیدار را با ترتیب خاصی در Never Let ePUB #241 کمرشکن تپه‌ای ببینم و با خود بگویم «شاید همین باشد پیدایش کردم» I had this book on my TBR shelf for years without realizing that it was essentially dystopian science fictionThe main character is a woman in her early thirties reflecting back on her life as a child at a private school in England Kids in the school grew up in an isolated but almost idyllic setting; not knowing their parents but realizing somehow they were “special” After finishing school they live together in small groups in cottages before heading out into the world on their own The story is set in the late 1990’sFrom the very first page we learn something is not right just from the language We read that they have become “carers” and “donors;” their teachers are called “guardians” and later in the story a group goes out to look for an older woman who looks like one the school kids and might be her “possible” We also learn they can have sex but are incapable of having children and that after their third of fourth “donation” they have “completed” So we catch on pretty uickly what life has in store for these kids There are some genuine mysteries though Why does the school seem obsessed with encouraging them to do creative work giving them awards and collecting the best work to go to a gallery that they never see Where does it go and who sees it and whyMuch of the plot is built around a three way love story between a boy and two girls at school All three are good friends but the boy and one of the girls are a couple That girl is controlling and domineering and prevents the relationship between her boyfriend and the other girl from developing Late in life a romantic relationship develops between the other girl the young woman who is our main character and the now young man In fact she becomes his “carer” Is the love they develop better than it would have been years ago Or is it too late and stale This uote explains the title “Because maybe in a way we didn’t leave it the school behind nearly as much as we might once have thought Because somewhere underneath a part of us stayed like that fearful of the world around us and – no matter how much we despised ourselves for it – unable uite to let each other go” I thought it was a good story; it kept my attention all the way through although not uite as good as the author’s best known work Remains of the Day

Never Let Me Goرمان تکان‌دهنده‌ای است آکنده از احساس شکنندگی انسان معاصر، خاطرات به یادماندنی شخصیت‌هایی که رفته رفته به حقیقت دوران کودکی به ظاهر شاد و نیز آینده‌ی خود پی می‌برند آن‌ها پس از سال‌ها د It is a pity that people are told this is a science fiction book before they read it I feel the least interesting thing about it is that it is science fiction I mean this in much the same way that the least interesting thing one could say about 1984 is that it is science fiction As a piece of literature I enjoyed it much than Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and even than Huxley's Brave New World The themes that make this book most interesting are to do with the social alienation of groups of people on the basis of inherited genetic characteristics In fact as a critiue of racism this book is utterly brilliant Those being racially alienated are genetically identical they are in fact clones to those attacking themPlato believed those 'in the know' should tell lies to those 'who do not know' so as to protect them from the all too horrible truths about life I have always hated this aspect of Plato always finding it grotesue and frightening in its implications Those implications are drawn out in all their disturbing horror here This book has much to say about the nature of 'illness' and how those inflicted with an 'illness' use the scars of that illness as the badges of truly belonging to the group So that those 'less advanced' in the ravages of the illness don't really know or really belong to the group As a portrait of victims adopting to being victims it says much about us as humans thoughtful readers may find it says far too much I write this on World Aids DayIshiguro writes the most nightmarish novels I've ever read In others such as The Unconsoled or When We Were Orphans the nightmare feeling is due to the dreamlike oddity of the interconnection of events in the story One reads these books in much the same way that one wakes from a disturbing dream with feelings of disorientation and anxiety Even though this is the most literal 'nightmare book' of his I have read the world he creates being literally a nightmare and made all the worse by being set in the recent past it is a book totally lacking in that strange dreamlike uality so characteristic of these other novels In this sense it seemed less of a nightmare than these others If you struggled with these you will not struggle with this in uite the same wayHe also has fascinating and uite painful things to say about the nature of love and how love has a proper time a time that may be lost or missed As someone who has loved lost and missed I found this particularly challenging The relationship between sex and love and illness is perhaps something people may find simply too much not because this is handled in any way that is too explicit but because I do believe we like to think that sex as a manifestation of love has curative and redemptive powers A book that uestions this uestions something we hold very dear and some readers may find this too much to askThis is also a book about betrayal The betrayals we commit against those we love the most and yet that we barely can understand or explain after we have committed them these are constant throughout the book He is a writer all too aware of the human condition The scene which gives the book its title is a wonderful example of the near impossibility of our being understood by others and yet our endless desire for just such an understandingThere is nothing easy about reading this book although it is written in the simplest of prose It has an honesty of feeling that brands one's soulI loved this book and have thought about it a lot since I finished reading it and will think about it There is much I would like to say but there is no space May we all be good carers before we complete
