Ian McEwan doesn't disappoint.

Narrator was excellent. McEwan writes beautifully. For me, his books are more about the journey: each sentence is so well crafted, and the plot is a bonus.

Ian McEwan's worst.

Pretentious and disappointing. Would have been better as a couple of short stories without the tedious padding. McEwan is capable of far superior material.
