A riveting and original novel by one of the best living authors we have. Skip the just-okay movie, and read the book!

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.

The haunting and painful beauty of "Atonement" by Ian McEwan has stayed with me since the first time I read it in 2002.
I gave it to all my friends to read because I needed to talk about it. I chose it for my book club discussion as soon as we could purchase the paperback edition.
Every time I re-read it I find another little gem - a graceful turn of phrase, a cleverly dropped in clue, another message to the reader.
It is a book that just gets better and better with each reading.
