Review

"A magnificent novel" (Independent)

"A superb achievement" (New York Times)

"The best thing he has ever written" (Observer)

"He is this country's unrivalled literary giant...a fascinatingly strange, unique and gripping novel" (Independent on Sunday)

"McEwan's best novel so far, his masterpiece" (Evening Standard)

"A beautiful and majestic fictional panorama" (John Updike)

"Subtle as well as powerful, adeptly encompassing comedy as well as atrocity, Atonement is a richly intricate book... A superb achievement" (Sunday Times)

"Atonement is a masterpiece...it is also an elegy to a time which, however volatile, still had certainties" (The Times)

"An evocative depiction of the dangers of innocence and ignorance in the face of uncomfortable reality." (Herald)

"Brilliantly explores the currents of guilt, shame and anger... Utterly satisfying, complete" (Scotsman)

Synopsis

On the hottest day of the summer of 1934, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is Robbie Turner, her childhood friend who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have been changed for ever. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not even imagined at its start, and will have become victims of the younger girl's imagination. Briony will have witnessed mysteries, and committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone.
