March


The book under discussion for the March meeting of the Edinburgh SF Book group is the latest novel from Booker-shortlisted Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go, which follows the story of an idyllic school for children which is not all that it seems.

It is a powerful and moving book (so Susan tells us, we will all find out when we read it and discuss it!) which raises issues of the meaning in life, friendship and loss of innocence. Never Let Me Go is also one of the shortlisted novels on this year's prestigious Arthur C Clarke Award.

The March meeting of the book group will be from 6 to 7pm in the warm environs of Henderson's on Hanover Street on Tuesday the 28th of March with all welcome to come along.
