I've enjoyed many of the McEwan books, this book is not a favorite among them. He does have an interesting style and a talent for writing books that are snippets of people's lives.

Haunting, with another signature McEwan scene of unbearable suspense - the sequence in the treehouse is unforgettable.

McEwan's other books have received a lot of praise and notice, of course--but this more subtle, perfectly constructed novel may be my favorite by him.
