Reviews

"Wonderful...exquisite...devastating" * Independent on Sunday * "Exquisitely crafted" * Evening Standard * "Superb... The protagonists have everything to lose, and their faltering journey towards a point of no return is conjured into life my McEwan with irresistible subtlety, tact and force" * Financial Times * "On Chesil Beach is more than an event. It is a masterpiece" -- Karl Miller * Times Literary Supplement * "This is McEwan's mature style, one we have come to recognise from Atonement and Saturday. It is a polished, civilised style, and very distant from the shock tactics of his early work... McEwan brings Florence and Edward touchingly alive for us; and their seriousness, their idealism, and their desire for love draw us towards them" -- Natasha Walter * Guardian * "To commend an author for being reminiscent of Edith Wharton is a compliment that this reviewer reserves for a select few. Yet with On Chesil Beach, Ian McEwan has earnt it" -- Lionel Shriver * Telegraph * "A master feat of concentration in both senses of the word" -- Peter Kemp * Sunday Times * "Written with a fierce pursuit of the truth and an utterly modern self-awareness, what a confidant tour de force this turns out to be" * Sunday Express * "One of our greatest living writers. Many Easter weekends and train journeys will be enlivened by a compelling novella" -- Christopher Dolan * Herald * "It is a masterpiece. The very idea that informs it, fascinating and unfamiliar, is masterly" -- Karl Miller * TLS *
