As with all Mcewan titles there's a very dark side to the exploration of relationships in the cement garden. The lost innocence of youth feature heavily as three siblings struggle to survive in a parentless world.

Have always been a fan and actually read this for a second time having first read it years ago. A great creative writer and never scared to mess with your head a little, which I love.

Mesmerizing read. I ran through it & thoroughly enjoyed.
Highly recommend to anyone who already likes Ian McEwan & anyone who hasn't meet him yet....

Ian McEwan shares a dark, and deeply disturbing account of a young boys emotions as he experiences the death of both his parents, and grows embroiled in an incestuous affair with his sister. A fascinating exploration of teenage life, with a dark somewhat depressing overtone as a result of the subject matter. I found the book thought provoking, but it's not the kind of book you want to read more than once. Not recommended for the light of heart

The ending felt a little abrupt, but it was well written with largely believable characters. Not a book for the faint hearted, certainly.

The only book of his that portrays the working class as opposed to the rest of his books that deal with the middle classes.

The Cement garden ,another gripping story from McEwan. Bit far fetched but couldn't wait to see how it would end.
