Medlemmers vurdering

Oslomor – 03.05.2009

– For å være ærlig synes jeg denne boka er litt oppskrytt. Tilsynelatende handler den om Kathy og hennes venner som er vokst opp på en britisk kostskole. Men kostskolen skjuler en hemmelighet. Plottet går litt tregt, og det er ikke mye som skjer. Uten å røpe absolutt alt kan jeg fortelle at noe av poenget er at dette er barn som er klonet og som blir oppdratt til å være reservedeler. En skjebne hovedpersonene mer eller mindre aksepterer. Boka er dyster og tegner et mørkt bilde av menneskeheten, medisinen og av det såkalte frie valg. Plottet er forsåvidt spennende, men boka surrer og går i samme dur uten at de store overraskelsene kommer. Men for all del, dette er et interessant tema og språket er naturligvis godt. Kanskje fenglser boka deg mer enn den gjorde meg?

– Ruth, Tommy and out protagonist Kathy have all grown up at Hailsham. They are taught about art and sports and literature and how it's important that they keep their bodies healthy by not smoking or contracting any STD's. They are also vaguely informed of how their lives will be after Hailsham. How they will go on to become carers, and then donors; donating their vital organs to people dying from some fatal disease. Ruth, Kathy and Tommy are all clones, and their only purpose in life is to grow healthy organs for the 'real people'. And they are fine with it, or if not fine, than at least resigned to it as an inevitable way of life. And this resignation and acceptance of their reason of living is what make this book so incredibly heart wrenching. Ishiguro is speculating not only with humanity's willingness to use science in the most horrid of ways, but he's also challenging out free will and the statement claiming that faced with your mortality you will make the most of your life, cramming as much Life into it as possible. This is an amazing story, and has so many ideas and possibilities. An amazing read.
