    " Love love love this. I read it on holiday in Hungary and on the way back our flight was delayed until 2am. On the flight everyone slept except me and someone else also reading it. This novel consumed me and I felt grief stricken when I finished it. Amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrei | 2/9/2014

    " Exact ca filmu, pana si in micile detalii. Cu exceptia ca Briony e mai enervanta in carte. Si bineinteles irationalitatea iubitilor idioti. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 1/26/2014

    " I think I have to go with the consensus view on this one--I've read a number of books by McEwan, and this is the best of the lot. I do a lot of my reading on the Metro these days, and I would get so absorbed in this at times that I would look up from the book, disoriented as to just where I was. Never missed my stop (that's only happened once, while reading Anna Karenina), but I came close a couple of times. "

    " This book starts off very slow and had me wondering where it was going and if I would be able to stay with it. I'm glad I continued reading because I enjoyed the story and the writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley Lind | 1/8/2014
