4. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro Adapted into a pretty good movie, the book is better because of the way the reader slowly begins to understand the absolute impossibility of hope for our lovers. Set in an altered England of the recent past, the story unfurls in a masterful gradual reveal as the characters come to understand who they are and the real purpose of the boarding school they attend. The reader shares the students' sense of foreboding and willful denial, which doesn't make it any easier to accept the truth as it seeps out.
