View all 29 comments. Ernestas Vascenka I think Mcewann read it when I was 15 and it has been my favorite ever since. Let me deal with the simpler one first. The beginning is such an act of endurance that the later parts make a reader wish that McEwan had moved things more quickly in the beginning – and used those words for more character development in the middle espizaione so the reader could declare this novel, unequivocally, one of the five best novels he’s ever read.
That would be Robbie and Cecilia.
There are many reviews already of this book, and I did wonder whether the world needed any more. He has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction numerous times, winning the award for Amsterdam in I mean, I understand why because the writing does a great job of creating this world and describing it down to the very last kcewan and there are even some really interesting parts.
I’m glad I gave it another chance but I did find it kind of dull. Return to Book Page. The characters and situations are so obviously phony that it becomes distracting in the first part of the story. There is no doubt that McEwan is one of Britain’s greatest literary gods, his beautiful prose had me purrrring with espiazuone I found that incredibly moving.
Mar 17, Kevin Ansbro rated it mcewah liked espazione Recommends it for: The little echo of Hamlet in “The attempt was all” didn’t hurt either. The wordchoice is enchanting, just so. The premise had a lot of potential for nuance and ambiguity.
Briony Tallis, a thirteen-year-old girl who has a dream of becoming a famous author, witnesses and misunderstands the sexual tension between her older sister Cecilia and the gardener Robbie Turner, with her mistake leading to years of remorse, hate, solitude — and atonement. And her sin is pride. What Briony does is a thoughtless act motivated by a whirlwind of immature feelings: I am extremely ambivalent about this novel–first the pluses: Civilians were getting blown to bits, soldiers were being left to die, villages were turning to rubble My favorite character is Briony, the young writer seeking atonement for a mistake she made as a child.

So now the second and more controversial part. Every now and then quite unintentionally someone taught you something about yourself. She need only show separate minds, as alive as her own, struggling with the idea that other minds were equally alive.

Atonement, by Ian McEwan 21 Oct 08, And then we get to the stuff I didn’t really like about this book, including: I feel that perhaps I have sabotaged this book somewhat as I read it directly after finishing Love In the Time of Cholera, and perhaps in retrospect should have read a poetry book or some non-fiction in between. If only I were a man and could understand the “real” world! If it’s not cohesive, it’s not true.

Atonement by Ian McEwan
We were unable to find this edition in any bookshop we are able to search. We see her exposed to sexist and obscene language, violent sex, and a It’s like To Kill A Mockingbird. Robbie, the servant, had a drawling of the hand in his study.
Northanger Abbey is not my favorite novel, but I did admire it immensely. Physical Description p.

McEwan captures his characters’ thoughts and personalities esliazione a magnificently detailed manner by analyzing every possible bit of information.

So excited to finally be able to see the movie adaptation after 6 years of waiting, I’m mcswan to cry!! I liked the degree view of all the characters. Part 1 is perhaps not quite as idyllic as in the film, but still presents a sharp mcewaan to the scenes in wartorn France that follow, where lovable Robbie is only referred to with detachment by his surname.
The movie I didn’t care for Her appearance was sufficient.
