Review: Amsterdam

Amsterdam by Ian McEwan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A quick and strange read that has its own twist at the end although you don't see it coming necessarily, it doesn't rate up there as the most plausible.

Still, Ian McEwan is worth studying and if I could go 3.5 stars I would for the very fact that he does things with character and place that are hard to beat even though this one ended up less than 4 stars.

Review: Atonement

Atonement by Ian McEwan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started this book about three times over the last couple of years. Just finished it and wish I never started it so I could read it all over again.

After finishing it I realized why I put it down so many times: act I feels like act II. But now I understand why and it makes the remainder of the book unfold like the wrapping on a piece of candy you have waited for too long. Yummy. 5 stars. I stand by it.

Quit at your own risk

I went for a run this morning and realized for the first time that the real work doesn't start until someone or something is telling you to quit.
