On Chesil Beach: A Novel by Ian McEwan
On Chesil Beach: A Novel

Debra22, May 7, 2008

Not an exciting page turner, but the reader becomes immersed in the lives of the 2 main charaters from the first page. Definitely the kind of book that stays with you, as is the case with his other books I have read. Dont expect a fast moving storyline. This is a gradual unfolding of the set of circumstances that have made these two people into the complex characters they are. A compelling read. I'd also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's bestseller--The Fates--highly addictive reading.
