Great read really enjoyed it
on 8 December 2012
I overlooked this Ian McEwan book previously, but looked it up after reading Sweet Tooth recently. I did look at the reviews of others before I bought and was a little discouraged by some. However I really enjoyed the book.
Some reviewers seemed to attach great importance to the fact that the author does not name the location, and also that some of the action is a little beyond belief - however surely the locations, activities and motivations, thoughts and desires created by an author of fiction are essentially dreamed up and strung together skillfully to entertain and sometime challenge the reader. If it is a travelogue and action always in line with your predictable logic then you probably wont always get satisfaction from this kind of creative author
