Interesting story

It took me a while to get into this book but once I was I was hooked. Unusual story line with many insightful narrative on the issue of 'Time' which i personally find has sparked my own philosophical interest in the notion of time. Highly recommended.

Intense, moving and mcewan at his best.

Fascinating poignant and moving book. At times it's drifting narrative is dull but the final chapter makes it worth every word. It's one of the most moving final chapters i can recall.
