The Children Act — Ian McEwan

Having never read any Ian McEwan before, I loved this. If anything, I wanted it to be longer: the plot development is so neat and concise, and the book so short (a nicely spaced 200 pages) I rattled through it and was quite disappointed it came to an end so quickly.

If a High Court judge trying complex family cases sounds like your kind of thing, I recommend giving this a go. For the existing McEwan fans out there, which of his should I try next?

8/10
