Atonement by Ian McEwan

McEwan’s prose is so beautiful and intricate.  Rarely do writers and their particular styles stand out to me but his is so unique to him that it is impossible not to notice. The descriptions are so detailed and vivid that you almost feel as though you’re right there with the characters. His writing just flows and I thought the switching between narrators was brilliant. I saw the movie before reading the novel and can honestly say I enjoyed the book a lot more. The cinematography was gorgeous but you miss so much without the written words.
