Never let me go.

I remember when I was in college, how we were made to write essays arguing the pros and cons of designer babies and cloning humans for science experiments. It was ridiculous. None of us would ever imagine it happening in reality.

But it did, in this novel at least.

The fragility of life, and the futility of defying your life’s purpose.

While no one could deny the former, I had trouble agreeing with the latter. I kept wondering, throughout the film as well, why didn’t anyone try to escape the system? Drive far away and never return, for instance.

I guess running away was never a possibility. Because this is what they’re supposed to do, which makes it even more tragic.
