Some twitter buzz has been highlighting the movie trailer for Never Let Me Go and I feel I must say my two cents.
As much as I’m thrilled that the cast includes Carey Mulligan AND Kiera Knightley (I was just posting about how much I enjoyed Mulligan in An Education), I’m also thinking that ALL the DIALOGue in the trailer is too
of the whole concept of the book!
SO. If you have NOT read Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro but think you might want to AND especially if you don’t like to know much about a book when you start it, I suggest you NOT watch, not discuss, not do anything but find the book and read it – do not even read the blurbs or back cover or anything. Just start in.

This concludes my public service announcement. (which I’m sure I’ve ruined by posting the link… sigh)
If you have read the book and viewed the trailer, do you agree with me? or not. Feel free to share your yay/nay opinion. 🙂 And if you’re not sure? Maybe Nicole at Linus Blanket will help sway you – she both agrees and disagrees with me in her post on this same topic!
Will I still see the movie? Yes, of course.
