Book Review : Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach

On Chesil BeachOn Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What can I say..I just love the way Ian McEwan writes, to say the least.

The extent to which he chooses to linger on some moments in the lives/days/hours of his characters is just what I live by when reading him. For some, it may mean 'too much detail' but for others(and me) its just his style.
On Chisel Beach is devastating in a funny way. It touches upon the most uncomfortable parts of the initial few hours in a married couple's life. Be prepared to feel embarrassed and awkward.The vanity and the sarcasm is all very English. The book is short and as intense as Ian McEwan gets.

Strictly for McEwan fans ONLY!
