Never Let Me Go
This is a very accessible piece of literary fiction that describes the experiences of a group of adults growing up in a near-future distopia -- I won't say why it's distopian as this comes out gradually over time. There are clear parallels with Brave New World and The Handmaid's Tale: the closest parallel I know of the movie The Beach, which would offer a more direct and less literary approach.
3/5. Finished 13 October 2013.
