Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
Sweet Tooth

Angelique Leone, September 21, 2012

Pre-order this book! I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy. It is such a great, enticing story. The main character's love of reading is magically weaved through the entire book; you even get to read the short stories she is reading (multiple plot lines for the price of one)! The backdrop of the early 70s, the Cold War that isn't as scary as other forces, changes in women's desires and careers, combined with beautifully flawed characters makes this for a more complex book than at first glance. McEwan doesn't disappoint!
