Please Dont Make Me Go by John Fenton

The harrowing true story of one boy’s experiences in a brutal ‘approved’ school for young offenders in ‘50s London, run by Catholic monks where violence and abuse were rife.


Beaten from an early age by his abusive, father, John struggled to fit in at school where his poverty marked him out. When, aged 13, his father brought a charge against him in order to remove him from the family home, John found himself in Juvenile Court – from here he was sent to the notorious St. Vincent’s school, run by a group of Catholic Irish Brothers.


Beatings and abuse were a part of daily life – both from John’s fellow pupils, but also from the brothers, all of which was overseen by the sadistic headmaster, Brother De Montfort. Tormented physically and sexually by one boy in particular, and by the Brothers in general, John quickly learnt to survive but at the cost of the loss of his childhood.


Please don’t make me go, tells in heart-rending detail the day-to-day lives of John and the other boys – the beatings, the weapons fashioned from toilet chains and stones, the loneliness – but we also see the development of John’s love of reading, his growing friendship with Father Delaney and his best friend, Bernard, and his unstinting love for his mother whom he feared was suffering at the hands of his violent father.


A painfully, brutally honest account, Please don’t make me go is also an example of the resilience of the human spirit as it documents how John learnt to survive and come through his ordeal.

Though Ishiguro blends some real English geography into the science fiction world he creates, almost all of the places in Never Let Me Go are pure inventions. Many of the characters have real affection for one another and develop close relationships in spite of their bleak prospects.

Never Let Me Go

Throughout the s I kept writing pieces of a story about an unusual group of "students" in the English countryside. I was never quite clear who these people were. They lived in wrecked farmhouses, and though they did a few typically student-like things - argued over books, worked on the occasional essay, fell in and out of love - there was no campus or professor in sight.

The film was directed by Mark Romanek from a screenplay by Alex Garland. Principal photography began in April and lasted several weeks. The movie was filmed at various locations, including Andrew Melville Hall. Prior to the book's publication, Garland had approached the film's producers—Andrew Macdonald and Andrew Reich—about a possible film, and wrote a page script. The producers initially had trouble finding an actress to play Kathy. Mulligan was cast in the role after Peter Rice, the head of the company financing the film, recommended her by text message while watching her performance in An Education.

Never Let Me Go is set in a dystopian world in which human clones are created so that they can donate their organs as young adults. Kathy reminisces about her time at Hailsham. Kathy relates a number of anecdotes about how her relationships with Ruth and Tommy change over time. One day when he is thirteen, Miss Lucy , a teacher and guardian, informs Tommy that it is all right if he has trouble being creative because it does not matter anyway. Kathy is shocked by this. At one point, Ruth pretends to be talented at chess when she does not actually know how to play. At another, she pretends that a pencil case was a gift from her favorite teacher when in fact she bought it for herself.

I don't know What's mine And what's to come I'm picking a time I'm scratching at pieces Of a love that won't rewind Will not be deleted So I'm asking you to be kind And let me go In my arms I know you feel alone In my eyes You see the great unknown If you want a love to grow Then let me go I don't know What's real And what's for sure The world can share In digital places He said a stranger could say to you I hope that's true Maybe a soulmate could persuade you To let me go In my arms I know you feel alone In my eyes You see the great unknown If you want a love to grow Then let me go.
