I have been faint hearted in my praise of Ian McEwan in the past. Mainly because I find it difficult to feel involved in his books – with his detached tone and slow build up.
But I loved this book.
What did I like?
The anti-hero was convincingly portrayed. I almost expect to meet him in the street.
The themes were contemporary; solar energy, big business, academia.
And most importantly – it was very, very funny.
What didn’t I like?
The ending left me wanting more ….
