Too many expectations ruin the soup
My expectations were very high. I like McEwan, he'd never let me down. And I went to a book launch a couple years ago after which I had a mental image of what this book was going to be like, which was totally wrong. So this surely influenced my
ed my judgement. But I also found that the story didn't flow well and wasn't built with the expertise of other McEwan books.
The ending was way too "easy", and I'll say no more not to give it all away.
All in all, I would have given this book 3 stars and a half.
