This book started off very strong for me. I really enjoyed Ishiguro’s writing style, but then the story bogged down in the middle, and by the ending, I was really mad. I didn’t like how it ended AT ALL. So they do nothing? They just coolly accept their fate? That, to me, proves to me that the “students” were soulless. They never truly loved each other from my perspective, and they couldn’t see that they could at least TRY to get out of their situation? I’m wondering what Ishiguro’s point here was. Is he saying they had a soul or not? If you’ve read the book, please give me your take!
(Oh, and another thing. . . is disorientated a word? I always thought it was disoriented. Just another thing that irked me.)
