I was so keen to come to tomorrows book club, but unfortunately it coincides
with Pete's brother from New Zealand coming over.. A bit of a bummer as I am
a great fan of Ian McEwan and I would have loved to know what everyone
thought of this particular piece of writing and compare it to his other
I enjoyed 'on chesil beach'.. Like most of his books, I love the pace and
the way he unravels each memory and each detail that give Florence and
Edward a beautiful depth. I think McEwan is a great humanist and always
keeps me thinking about our wonderful strange human ways and how we interact
with one another.. There are so many ways to read and misread each others
actions and behaviour.. The human error to misjudge could be seen as a
crime, but I think McEwan creates a way to find forgiveness.. Which is what
I really like about the book..
Anyway.. I'm sad to miss out tomorrow night, and I'm sure there will be some
beautiful ideas and thoughts about the book and his writing style.. I would
love to hear how it all goes..
Have a beautiful night, and please send my regards to all BBC members!
