4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly great literature, 22 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Star of the Sea (Hardcover)
The writing is beautiful, the political context fascinating, the development of the characters masterful, yet the ending is a little disappointing - it almost seems rushed, with the endings for the different characters ticked off in an almost perfunctory manner. Up until the last twenty pages this is a revelationary read; what a pity that the momentum couldn't be sustained until the very last page!

5.0 out of 5 stars Children and Time, 11 Feb. 2000
This review is from: The Child In Time (Paperback)
What a splendid read! The way McEwan weaves separate threads of plot into one beautifully integrated and very moving discourse on childhood and time, loss and rediscovery, made this the best book I have read in a long, long time.
