5.0 out of 5 stars Deep and Dark - just as i like it!, 4 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Cement Garden (Vintage Blue) (Paperback)
I enjoy Ian McEwans books and I have read most of them. I rate this book highly as it was his first (I believe) and its hard hitting.

The story revolves around the death of the parents of 4 children and how the two eldest try to hide the fact as they dread being split up and put in care. I honestly felt for the characters in the book and in a way could identify with their problems.

The book does cover the incestuous side but thats really incidental to the book.

A good read and a thoght provoking novel.

Read the book then get a copy of the film. if anything its darker then the novel.
