My reading this book was actually a consequence of a chain reaction. I was looking for a good movie to watch and came across the movie adapted from the book which later led me to borrow the book itself.

I have to admit, this isn't an easy book to read as many already mentioned, however it's simplicity and direct storytelling is what makes it a success. It doesn't take you long to read it as it's a short book, but it manages to grasp your attention and doesn't let go easy until the end. That was my experience anyway, I am not an Ian McEwan follower, this was in fact the first novel I read of him, but the fans of the genre and the author would definitely like it in my opinion.
