I don’t want to ruin the magic of this tale by giving too much away. Even what little I need to say may ruin it for some readers, so, if you wish to explore this amazing novel on your own as I did then stop reading my write-up now!
This is a dystopian love story unlike anything you’ve ever encountered. The GR description doesn’t begin to explain the tale. You are led into the story bit by bit through the very personal remembrances of the main character (Kathy) as she shares both her childhood and adult experiences with her best friends from Hailsham, a very “special” school.
The emotional experiences you will discover within yourself while reading this story will be powerful…and very subtle. It is a masterfully, blended trip everyone needs to take.
