En gång för länge sedan fick Michael Beard Nobelpriset i fysik. Nu närmar han sig sextio, är slut som forskare och har dessutom hunnit bli både skallig och fet. Han påminner en del om planeten Jorden, som i den globala uppvärmningens tidevarv också tycks ha sina bästa år bakom sig. Frågan är: kan någon av dem räddas?Michael har levt länge på sitt Nobelpris. Han håller tal mot enorma arvoden, lånar ut sitt namns prestige till vetenskapliga institutioner och leder, om än lite halvhjärtat, ett projekt för att bekämpa den globala uppvärmningen. Till hans många problem hör också att han är notoriskt otrogen och nu börjar hans femte äktenskap knaka allt mer i fogarna. När så Michaels privatliv och hans yrkesliv flätas samman genom en oväntad händelse ser han till slut ljuset i tunneln, en möjlighet att reparera sitt äktenskap, återuppliva sin karriär och möjligen också rädda världen undan enförödande miljökatastrof.Hetta, Ian McEwans tolfte roman, är en fängslande, insiktsfull och framförallt mycket rolig berättelse där vår tids ödesfråga framför andra - klimatförändringen - kastar ett nytt och oväntat ljus över den eviga kampen mellan människans höga ideal och hennes låga instinkter.

    " I wish that I hadn't seen the movie, because I think the story works best if you can let it unfold and not try to guess at what happens next. The writing it beautiful "

    " There is a reason this was made into a movie. Best McEwan book I've read. "

    " Three-point-five stars was what I had in mind. But four-stars will do. I love the prose, the momentum of its flow. And it's quiet a sad book. I suppose the best method of atonement is storytelling, especially the way story can revise something in memory, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ingvild | 5/19/2011

    " This was a book I chose to read picked out for my in depth study in English this winter. Mostly because I've seen the movie and liked that very much. For me "Atonement" was a good thinking book, with a lot of nice descriptions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivekananda | 5/15/2011

    " Consistently amazing sentence construction, though at some points the narrative seemed a bit soft. "

    " Intelligent and captivating read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paula | 5/14/2011

    " I'm not sure if I was just reading this book at the wrong time or if I really couldn't just get into it but after almost 1/3 of the way through, I still wasn't pulled in. Every time I started reading it, I struggled to stay focused. Finally I just gave up and moved on. "

    " The novel takes you on an exploration of shame and a journey to find absolution for one’s actions. Great story with a very sad ending. It was a difficult read at times, but overall,I enjoyed the journey. "
