Atonement by Ian McEwan Book Summary

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • A symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness that provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from the acclaimed Booker Prize–winning, international bestselling author.

On a hot summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’ s incomplete grasp of adult motives—together with her precocious literary gifts—brings about a crime that will change all their lives.

As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece.

Don’t miss Ian McEwan’s new novel, Lessons, coming in September!

Atonement (Ian McEwan) Book Reviews

AtonementSure Brilliance!.Score: 5/5

AtonementAn absolute, beautiful read..Score: 5/5

Briony’s novelFrom the beginning Briony was my least favorite of the characters in the book. I hated her complicity in the trials of Robbie and Cecelia. I did like the ending except for the realization that Robbie and Cecelia were both killed in 1940 and never able to realize their redemptive love. If, as Briony’s character stipulates the novel would not be as pleasing to the audience should she not create a different ending in the book to be published after her death, why does she not let us believe they had a happy life ever after? I hate creative license—I prefer novels to be tied up wth a big red bow of happiness!.Score: 4/5

100 Words or LessOn a deeply personal level, this is an amazingly beautiful novel. The language and tone are perfect. The characters and settings are painted in vivid detail. And the emotional impact is devastating. I’ve been a McEwan fan for awhile, but this novel transcends with its overall scope of life and betrayal down to its moments of individual truth found in a simple sentence. This is exactly the type of novel that makes us all wish to be writers..Score: 5/5

FabAt his very best.Score: 5/5

AwesomeI was not looking forward to reading this because I was not a huge fan of the movie, and do not usually like romance-focused stories. However this book is far from just a romance, it is a very adventurous novel. I think people in the medical field, like myself, will especially enjoy it. It is now in my top 3 favorite books of all time..Score: 5/5
