The sadness of love,
By A Customer
This review is from: Black Dogs (Paperback)
This time McEwan holds the tension between the opposites though his characters cannot (he doesn't kill them off as in Amsterdam). Brilliant insights into what keeps us apart, the wall that doesn't come down between a man and wife, even when there is love. The dogs are terrifying. I was held throughout. It gave me hope, and energy. A wonderful book.
