Enduring Love by Ian McEwan

The Blurb On The Back:

There’s no blurb on the back, instead there are the following quotes:

”A page turned, with a plot so engrossing that it seems reckless to pick the book up in the evening if you plan to get any sleep that night … Enduring Love is also blessed with the psychological richness of the finest literary novel.”

Alain de Botton, Daily Mail

“Taut with narrative excitements and suspense … a novel of rich diversity that triumphantly integrates imagination and intelligence, rationality and emotional alertness.”

Peter Kemp, Sunday Times

“He is the maestro at creating suspense; the particular, sickening, see-sawing kind that demands a kind of physical courage from the reader to continue reading.”

Amanda Craig, New Statesman

“McEwan’s exploration of his characters’ lives and secret emotions is a virtuoso display of fictional subtlety and intelligence.”

Robert McCrum, Observer

“McEwan’s latest, and possibly finest … his trademarks are in full force, combining stomach-pit dread and almost unbearable pathos.  His technique is unparalleled; like the smiler with the knife, he finally slips it to the reader with exquisite smoothness.”

Fiona Russell Powell, Guardian

“He creates an opening that is unforgettable … McEwan does a superb job of making us believe what seems so unlikely, and that is the book’s greatest power.”

Jan Daley, Independent on Sunday
