I recently read Never Let Me Go and found it completely heartbreaking and have cried each time I've read it since, three times more. Have you read it? And if so, have you cried?

If you haven't, the basic premise is that [Spoiler (click to open)]it takes place in the late 90s, where cloning is common for essentially harvesting organs for medical purposes. It follows the lives of three clones being raised at a sort of boarding school, then their lives after they leave boarding school. Over time, the clones experience pain and happiness and hope and love. The book asks you to question whether or not these clones have souls. Do you believe that clones would have souls?

And finally, do you believe animals have souls as well if humans have souls?

These are just things that I thought about after reading the book; I don't intend to cause any drama, and if you want a happy easy question if you don't want to answer the first ones, what was the last book you read and what were your thoughts on it?
