Las personas salen y entran de nuestras vidas. Algunas veces nos marcan, otras no. Siempre nos quedan cosas que no se dicen. Nos escuchamos poco. Mientras ninguno de ellos miraba de mi mano surgieron palabras, la mayor parte de ellas tan vivas que eran chorros de imagen y palabra en mi cabeza. El resultado de todo ello, aquí está. Desde lo más profundo, desde lo más verdadero de uno mismo.

Los libros son como hijos. Algunos son partos fáciles y otros como éste son partos que te desgarran desde dentro. Cosas olvidadas, heridas sanadas, se reabren y se reviven para comprender lo duro que es olvidar, lo complicado que es amar, y sobre todo el arduo trabajo de desprenderte de esa persona que te ha marcado. Hay personas que llegan, se van, pero se te quedan dentro. Partiendo de sus diarios íntimos, la autora rescata sus sentimientos y memorias. Nos transporta en sus páginas a un tiempo en el que olvidar resultó ser una elección muy complicada. Una mirada al pasado en los que resucita y revive todo el tiempo que dedicó a tratar de olvidarle. Nota de la autora: si eres Tú, y crees que puedes ser Tú, para aquí y no leas ni una palabra. La autora rescata al primero de los protagonistas de "Todas las cosas que escribí cuando ninguno de ellos miraba"para ofrecernos una segunda parte más intima y detallada.

Never Let Me Go
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
Publisher: Vintage Canada
From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human. Hailsham seems like a pleasant English boarding school, far from the influences of the city. Its students are well tended and supported, trained in art and literature, and become just the sort of people the world wants them to be. But, curiously, they are taught nothing of the outside world and are allowed little contact with it. Within the grounds of Hailsham, Kathy grows from schoolgirl to young woman, but it’s only when she and her friends Ruth and Tommy leave the safe grounds of the school (as they always knew they would) that they realize the full truth of what Hailsham is. Never Let Me Go breaks through the boundaries of the literary novel. It is a gripping mystery, a beautiful love story, and also a scathing critique of human arrogance and a moral examination of how we treat the vulnerable and different in our society. In exploring the themes of memory and the impact of the past, Ishiguro takes on the idea of a possible future to create his most moving and powerful book to date.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
Narrated by a fifteen-year-old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.
