Wow, I hadn't heard of this title. I'll look for it. I liked Atonement (didn't care much for the film, though). Haven't read anything else by McEwan. I will!

I have not read this one, but I've read Atonement and enjoyed it. I've not even heard of this one. I will have to check it out.

I own a copy of The Child In Time, I just haven't read it. As a (secondtime) new mother, I thought this particular book might be too much for me, but I do normally enjoy McEwan's books.

I love McEwan and have heard of this but haven't read it. My favorite McEwan so far? Black Dogs, hands down. Like a lot of his work a slip of a novel but one that stays with you for a long, long time. He's the master of distilling how a single, brief moment can have repercussions forever.

Ylee - I couldn't agree more - On Chesil Beach and Atonement are perfect examples of that - Briony's impulsive lie and the newlyweds' disastrous night.

Ooh, I want this, I want this, I do, I do, I do! It will go on my TBR list immediately!

I haven't read this one either, but after years of being disappointed I can happily report that On Chesil Beach is my fave.
