Atonement
Atonement | Ian McEwan
From the Booker Prize winning author of Amsterdam, a brilliant new novel.On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching her is Robbie Turner, son of the Talliss cleaning lady, whose education has been subsidized by Cecilias and Brionys father, and who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By day's end, their lives will be changed irrevocably. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not imagined at its start. And Briony will have witnessed mysteries, seen an unspeakable word, and committed a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atoneBrilliant and utterly enthralling in its depiction of love and war and class and childhood and England, An Atonement is a profound and profoundly moving exploration of shame and forgiveness, of atonement and of the possibility of absolution.From the Hardcover edition.

Such a sad story but so beautifully and vividly told. I know Briony was only young and she tried to make amends but I was pretty much like this 🤭😠 the whole time with her. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

TrishB She just really annoyed me.....but I loved the book! 24h

So why exactly did I wait that long? I guess a good book is a good book no matter how long you wait. I‘m broken, 😥😥😥. I need to go away and finish crying and process my thoughts.
Meets a load of prompts which I‘ll sort in a little bit when I‘ve composed myself 💔💔

Do I watch the film (in about 3 years when I get over it?!).

After so many comments (for and against) Atonement last week I had to start it - I thought it was going to be rich people‘s problems which is a genre I hate but it‘s drawn me in anyway!!
Elevator Pitch is hopefully for train journey tomorrow (storm damage etc 🤞🏻🤞🏻) currently #99ponkindle
The others are hovering around my potential next reads constantly at the moment.

MY book club pick for March. My genre was tragedy and I had to google a list of fitting novels because all I could think of was Romeo and Juliet!

Ian McEwan is a brilliant writer! This is a sad book really and at times I felt angry at the events that occurred and wanted it to be different. The war scenes kept me engaged which is amazing because I do not like reading about war. There are some important messages here and I highly recommend it #literature #fiction #travelbook

The #MarchHare behaves in an unpredictable way.

The #CharactersLikeAlice I chose today, may not be as mad as a march hare, but the stories she spun that got the whole plot in motion, with all its twists and turns, including that (to me) unpredictable twist at the end... So, Briony it had to be.
