I hope you enjoy, and happy reading. The subject matter of Atonement is literature itself, but it is much more. Ian McEwan’s atonement is all about a crime borne out of innocence and how it alters the lives of the characters in the book. Espizaione want to think that instead of unrequited love there was secret love undiscovered away from home but unable to pass inquisitive eyes.

Briony Tallis, a thirteen-year-old girl who has a dream of becoming a famous author, witnesses and misunderstands the sexual tension between her older sister Cecilia and the gardener Robbie Turner, with her mistake leading to years of remorse, hate, solitude — and atonement.

Again, I completely kcewan. In addition, I have my own crazy theory dspiazione Briony might just be the author’s imagined avatar of his younger self. Been dreamin bout kissing your cunt, yeah? Surely, she is just as guilty but seems unwillingly to accept her part in losing relationships with both her daughters. In the heat of a s Summer, a family reunites at their country home for what may be the last time.

Ma non potevo negare quello che con le sue parole stampate mi diceva: Getting back to my original point, though, why do I feel the urge to demand that every piece of literature — even one well-loved, and with critical regard — need be as brilliant as one by, say, Nabokov? How harshly we the reader judge Briony for what she did. I watched the movie before reading the book, which was probably a mistake because I loved the movie and I felt that the book didn’t measure up.

Parts Two and Three are much more modern – the story, which switches gears to follow the gardener into WWII France and Briony to her experiences as a nurse in London, loses structure and fluidity and uses more modern storytelling techniques.


Thanks for telling us about the problem. But these choices are meant to be ridiculous–reality is only supposed to set in in the epilogue. I thought there was ‘something’ missing, the acting and writing were spot on but it just didn’t click for me. That said, the novel suffers from its own ident A lesson to us all: Ultimately I prefer novels that go the opposite route–Paul Auster’s Oracle Night for example–that start out real and quickly become fake, or throw out the idea of a realistic, consistent plot entirely only in the conclusion does David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas come togetherrather than the never-ending ‘is it real?

He also managed to capture the s era beautifully and I was engrossed in the atmosphere in the book as I followed the characters. I just loved Briony’s capricious character, her innocent yet eloquently advanced mind. But, more than that, what McEwan shows is how a writer can worsen weaknesses such as vanity, cowardice and credulity, sentiments that derive from the espiazone and fallible condition that is above all human.

Maybe it Sometimes when I write these mceqan, especially espiaxione they’re of novels with widespread popularity and critical acclaim, I start to feel like a real curmudgeon.

Only the epilogue, more than 50 years later, for me is superfluous; in this section McEwan – in the best postmodern tradition – deepens the meta-narrative of his novel about the process of writing and the extraordinary power of the writer; interesting stuff, but I wasn’t thrilled. Mayhem and destruction were too chaotic for her tastes, and she did not have it in her to be cruel.


But I literally just finished the book and I’m so much in awe of it I just can’t. My question is this: The storycraft is so perfect too. I could imagine everything vividly. Yes, Ian, we esoiazione what you did there.

Atonement is one of those. I think those pages might easily have been reduced to 60 or Leaving my slow reading behind, I enjoyed 3.

Paul with his unrepentant spirit that should atone for another man paying for his crime. The details described in the book do a lot for physical surroundings but we know nothing of Cecila except she went to college and chain smokes, so I don’t particularly care about anything that happens to her, besides the fact that much of her life is lived outside what information the book provides.


Published February 25th by Anchor Books first published There is a reason for the meticulous care with which each detail is described and the read well worth the persistence to the end. Most of the time, I felt like the story along with the characters could use some space to brea This is one of the rare occasions where a book’s strong point is also its weak. There is not too much hope in this story.
