Deborah Montuori, August 2, 2007 (view all comments by Deborah Montuori)
From the reviews I had read, I wasn't sure I'd enjoy this book, although I am a big fan of McEwan's work. How much can one really say about a failed wedding night? But On Chesil Beach is so much more than that. It's a study of a moment in time--not just Edward and Frances's wedding night, but the more innocent (or more restrictive, depending on your point of view) world of the 1960s. It's about love, expectations, dreams, what we feel and what we cannot say, and our penchant for lingering over what might have been. I can't say that this is my favorite McEwan novel, but I was surprised by how it kept me engaged--and by how long it stayed with me once I had finished reading.

Boring......it is the kind of book you could put down, walk away, never finish it, and not regret it.

"Review" by , "A nifty little flick... We shan't spoil the story — buy the book! See the movie! — but we will say it's worth the hyperbole. And the hype....This is McEwan, face-to-face."
"Review" by , "The film may be part of a beachhead of change in the way readers and authors connect."
"Review" by , "If someone were to explain the concept to me, it would sound so simultaneously populist and intellectual that I'd swear it was a European fancy... A very smart and engaging little film."
"Review" by , "Tightly and carefully done."
