Couldn't put it down. Reminded me of McEwan--and the ending is ambiguous and discussion-provoking. Not to oversimplify--but I've been reading many comments on line about how Tony the narrator's letter to Adrian and Veronica was so harsh--the cruelest thing, etc., etc.. Just think about it: these two people attempted to explain an illicit love affair and an illegitimate birth with an algebraic equation. Nothing else, just an algebraic equation. Well, in my book, that alone makes them deserve everything they got. O.k., I'm being a little facetious, but still . . . .
