This piece of art by Ian McEwan is one that shows his absolute dominance in narration and storytelling of modern literature.
The novel has quite a lot of action for a "literary" work. Although the characters were interesting, none of them were at all likable, so it was hard to engage on an emotional level. The use of high-brow vocabulary and references were fitting to the protagonist's snobbishness, but also felt like the author showing off. The narration was (suitably) upper-crust, but this meant that, for me, it wasn't terribly pleasing to listen to. The recurring science references appealed to my geekish tendencies.
