A little while ago I decided to start reading books from the "1001 books you must read before you die"-list. I want to read books I normally wouldn't think about picking up, and this book is my first from the famous list.
Kathy, Ruth and Tommy were pupils at Hailsham - an idyllic establishment situated deep in the English countryside. The children there were tenderly sheltered from the outside world, brought up to believe they were special, and that their personal welfare was crucial. But for what reason were they really there? It is only years later that Kathy, now aged 31, finally allows herself to yield to the pull of memory.
I started reading it yesterday, and I think this could be a very interesting and positive reading experience. Have you read it?
