Never Let Me Go by Kazuo IshiguroThis was my first (legitimate) ebook purchase (Kindle for iPhone), though I've been reading ebooks since the mid 90s. I'm reading this for the sci-fi bookgroup which I still haven't gotten around to attending despite having read half their selections. I think I completely ruined the start of this book for myself by reading the first two lines of the synopsis on wikipedia. Ho hum. Meh, finished, it was mediocre. Kinda reminded me of Spares by Michael Marshall Smith with all the interesting and exciting parts cut out.
