‘Saturday’ by Ian McEwan

21 April 2006

While we were in France I finished ‘Saturday’ by Ian McEwan – an interesting and extremely well-written novel – the events of a single day in the life of a neurosurgeon and his family set against the backdrop of the anti-Iraq war protests in London. I do like McEwan – there were some beautifully written passages and two great set-piece scenes – but overall I found this book a bit slow and unengaging.
