    " I like the ending - but had always hoped that "Kate" would show up again! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 2/15/2011

    " Dreamlike prose, strange, uncanny setting and beautiful and unexpected climax. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 2/1/2011

    " Don't waste your time. It was basically plot-less, with a resolution that just didn't make any sense. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 1/28/2011

    " A story of the disappearance of a child, and the parents trying to go on afterward. "

    " A wonderful play on the themes of maturity and time. "

    " Not the best of McEwan's novels but it marks an important shift in his writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 12/30/2010

    " How can I give 3 stars when that means "Liked it"? I honestly can´t say I "liked" this book. It was heartbreaking, heartwrenching. Parents shouldn´t read it at all. Of course, superbly written, which makes it even worse. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirsty | 12/10/2010

    " I'm definitely going to turn into a McEwan fan. This one has bits of supernaturally type stuff in it, which I often find to be a complete turn off, but well done and I'll let an author get away with it. "
