The novel takes place in "the late 1990s," and a postwar science boom has resulted in human cloning and the surgical harvesting of organs to cure cancer and other diseases. In an interview with January Magazine Ishiguro said that he is not interested in realism.* In spite of the novel's fictitious premise, however, how "realistically" does Never Let Me Go reflect the world we live in, where scientific advancement can be seemingly irresistible? explain in 100-200 words

This is a pretty involved question for this short space. I can point out that money has made a commodity out of everything in our world today. In many countries, organs are bought and sold: sometimes they are stolen from people. Mortality is something all people must deal with. The rich, in the story, think they can buy some time. As long as there is enough money, someone will supply the demand. This is true today and will continue to be in the future.
