Classic fiction in a modern disguise

This book is as multifaceted as it is underrated. Set in Britain against the backdrop of WWII, this story explores some of the most powerful human emotions. Regret, love, forgiveness, and mercy all weave together to form a story that will leave you with a better understanding of what it means to love and be human. The three main characters offer a different perspective on the events in the story and each other. While it can seem a little slow at the start, the pace quickens in the middle, and ends with an unexpected revelation that ties the entire work together. Ian McEwan’s writing is powerful and has an incredible amount of depth that is reminiscent of classic literary fiction. This novel is perfect for people who truly enjoy good writing, or are writers themselves.
