Ian McEwan Saturday,
This review is from: Saturday (Paperback)
Saturday is a very brainy book. Not just in the sense of being highly intelligent but also in its frequent prisings apart of the human skull to inspect what lies within. For its neurosurgeon-hero, Henry Perowne, the interior of the cranium is familiar territory.
It is written with superb exactness, complex, suspenseful, reflective and humane, this novel about an expert on the human brain by an expert on the human mind reinforces his status as the supreme novelist of his generation.
It is a day in the life of a surgeon.
