Book review: On Chesil Beach

by Ian McEwan

December 13, 2007

Fiction (2007)

A short literary "one-sitting" novel describes the latest work by this best-selling author.

Using a lot of sentences, he describes in minute detail the wedding night of Florence and Edward in 1962 England. The author not only plunges the reader back into the developing psyches of the bride and groom, but also into the values and mores of the time.

The reader is tempted to jump ahead to find out what happens.

This book and many others are available in both Spanish and English as well as book and audio form at the De Soto branch of the Johnson County Library. The book also is available on audio tape.

For more information, call the library at 583-3106.
