Totally agree with previous poster. Interesting idea and reminds me a bit of "Never Let Me Go." There's a feeling of something terrible must be going on, but as with Ishiguro (in my humble humble opinion) I feel a bit let down. There is so much build-up that there will be such a horrific revelation at the end, but the revelation seems like a whispered affirmation. I suppose it's more realistic or truthful way to tell a story.

Interesting in some conceptual ways, but too abstract to be really engaging and readable.
