Short-listed for Booker? Must be for author's reputation. A sloppy dull account of apparently the first night ever invented in history of a jittery couple, that reads like very bad English romantic fiction. The detailing of being so much in love (truly or for show) then being disappointed, is antithetical by the end of act 2 scene, especially when there is no whisper of concern prior except for lack of knowledge. The one authentic lovely scene on the beach does not redeem this surprisingly annoying read, and that scene's aftermath is written as if he had to stick to a deadline and word count. (For comparison/beauty, read a smilar account/first night scene, early in The Falls, by Joyce Carol Oates: it's superlative.) Also, a substantive editing error in reference to Internet commerce time frame.

Ian is trying to be cute and he fails. I was bored. He could have told the story in a much more exciting way.

Despite the shortness of this novel, I still found this a difficult book to finish (though the fact that it's not as lengthy as the majority of his novels is the only reason that I did manage to get through the whole book). Holding true with my previous experiences of McEwan's writing, I found the storyline plodding and weighed down with an overabundance of adjectives. It felt as though there was an excess of unnecessary scenes that were included merely to pad the story out as it takes place in the course of one night. Each moment is experienced with excruciating slowness, and then re-tread several times more. I have simply come to the conclusion that I will never understand why McEwan seems to be such a popular writer, I've found nothing in his books that would warrant the praise that I've heard given to him.

This novel was completely lacking in plot. I believe the author tried to make up for it by creating a long drawn out history of events leading up to the climax (or lack there of). As well, the story was hard to follow as I am Canadian and the story was mainly about England's politics, places, people, etc. I wouldn't recommend this novel. Thankfully it was short.
