This book blew me away. This is the first book I bought and downloaded for my Nook, and I think I made a wise choice.
**Spoilers Follow** If you wish to keep the mystery of the story, just accept right now that I loved it, and think everyone should read it. If you just gotta know part of it, read on:
Kathy is in her early-thirties, and tells us her story and the story of her two best friends – Ruth and Tommy. The three of them grew up in a very secluded school in the English country-side, being groomed for their future destinies. They are all being prepared to be like “normal” humans, until they start giving their donations. You see, they were only created in order to give their donations. It is a sad existence, but they don’t really comprehend that. They know of nothing else.
I didn’t really know much about this book when I started to read it, and that made it all the better. I loved discovering each new thing or relationship about the friends and their fellow students as it was revealed by Kathy. Her narrative voice is so easy and flowing – it is almost like a girlfriend telling you a story. You almost forget how horrifying this reality really is. I will definitely be reading more by this author.
