Shelf life: Looking at secular books

Science fiction is a genre I would normally associate with outlandish goings on, strange beings and lots of technology; definitely not my cup of tea. But in some ways you would have to put Never Let Me Go in a science fiction category, because it deals with an alternative vision of Britain, a present day in which science has travelled down a different route and allowed the production of human clones.
