Never Let Me Go Book Description:

Juliette I woke up in a life I don’t remember. People I don’t recognize keep telling me that this thriving business, beautiful home, and handsome fiance are mine - but none of it feels right. The past five years of my life are a mystery to me and every clue only leads to more questions. Questions that I can’t answer. Lost in an unfamiliar world and overwhelmed by the uncertainty around me, there is only one thing I can do - run. Sawyer Certainly, a smart girl like Juliette knows better than to accept a ride from a stranger, especially a tatted-up biker like me. But the desperate look in her eyes makes it clear she needs help and I can’t say no. The thirteen hour drive back home to Baton Rouge with this mysterious woman in the passenger seat passed in a flash and when we made it to the city, I wasn’t ready to let her go. So I offered to let her crash at my place and I was just as shocked as she was when she said yes. But we had no way of knowing that danger was right on our heels until moments of seemingly bad luck began to add up to real trouble. Finding answers means digging into her past, which is easier said than done since her memories are gone, but I’ll do whatever it takes to protect her. And when all this is over, I will fight just as hard to make her mine.

The Politics of Perfection Book Description:

The Politics of Perfection: Technology and Creation in Literature and Film provides an exploration of the relationship between modern technological progress and classical liberalism. Each chapter provides a detailed analysis of a film or novel, including Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Michael Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, and Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake. These works of fiction are examined through the lens of political thinkers ranging from Plato to Hannah Arendt. The compatibility of classical liberalism and technology is questioned, using fiction as a window into Western society’s views on politics, economics, religion, technology, and the family. This project explores the intersection between human nature and creation, particularly artificial intelligence and genetic engineering, using works of literature and film to access cultural concerns. Each of the works featured asks a question about the relationship between technology and creation. Technology also allows humanity to create new types of life in the forms of artificial intelligence and genetically engineered beings. This book studies works of literature and film as evidence of the contemporary unease with the progress of technology and its effect on the political realm.
