British actress Josephine Bailey is an elegant and exacting performer who never trips over long passages of resplendent adjectives and meandering descriptions. As the story moves the characters forward to Dunkirk in 1941 and then to a final reunion in the late 1990s, Bailey provides a graceful, provocative, and stimulating performance. c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine.
Ian McEwan’s Booker Prize-nominated Atonement is his first novel since Amsterdam took home the prize in 1998. But while Amsterdam was a slim, sleek piece, Atonement is a more sturdy, more ambitious work, allowing McEwan more room to play, think, and experiment. The interwar, upper-middle-class setting of the book’s long, masterfully sustained opening section might recall Virginia Woolf or Henry Green, but as we move forward–eventually to the turn of the 21st century–the novel’s central concerns emerge, and McEwan’s voice becomes clear, even personal.

Atonement Ian McEwan Jonathan Cape £1. 9. The twists and turns of Ian McEwan's fiction are built on a knack for sustained illusion. When he writes "a glass of beer" we do not just see it; we are willing to drink from it vicariously. The ballooning accident (imaginatively derived from footage of an actual incident) that opens Enduring Love is a spectacular example, but the ability to make the invented seem real animates every page of his work. The novels' psychological acuity derives, always, from their fidelity to a precisely delineated reality
The first ever McEwan book I read was On Chesil Beach. The obvious choices were Amsterdam and Atonement. While Amsterdam met my expectations and proved me right on reading another McEwan book, Atonement exceeded my expectations. Atonement is about a woman who has committed an unforgivable crime in her childhood. The book is the journey of how lives were affected because of her mistake and what she does to achieve atonement. The book is set in England and uses the world war 2 as a backdrop in a certain part of the book. The young girl, Briony Tallis, a 13-year-old girl dreams of becoming a writer. She enjoys the process of writing – creating an entire different world and the characters in it, changing them and making them act and talk according to her will.
