Atonement by Ian McEwan

Gertrude, January 4, 2010

This is one of the most compelling books I have ever read. In the early chapters, it may seem like little is happening--but you know something important is coming. And when it does, it changes many lives. The fallout from this incident is portrayed with all the tragic irony one could find in life, and the characters are fleshed out beautifully. Start reading it, and you won't want to put it down.
