1980‘s London. Charlie is in love with his neighbor Miranda. He purchases a robotic human named Adam. Charlie courts Miranda and Adam finds himself central to their affair. I didn‘t care too much for this book especially when Miranda started having sex with Adam. That was too much for me so this became my least favorite McEwan book. Can not recommend this one!

The Child in Time | Ian McEwan

Book shows just how quickly life can change in an instant. Stephen Lewis, an author of children‘s books, gets distracted while food shopping and his 3 year-old daughter has been kidnapped. His life is changed forever. His bereavement affects his relationship with his wife and his psyche. It was a very moving book with a beautiful ending! A book not to be missed! An extraordinary achievement by Ian McEwan!

The Daydreamer | Ian McEwan

This is a children‘s book that would appeal to adults too. 10 year-old Peter Fortune has a vivid imagination. He understands how it would feel to be a cat. He experienced the terror of being chased by evil dolls and he got to use vanishing cream that can actually make people disappear. When it takes him to where reality and daydreams meet, has it finally taken him too far? I will be passing this one onto my grandchildren. They will surely love it!

1962 Florence and Edward celebrate their wedding in a hotel on the Dorset coast. The expectation of their marital duties weighs over them. This is story of lives transformed by a gesture not made or a word spoken. A heartbreaking story which could have turned around if Edward would have showed a bit of love and patience instead of giving up on her. A bit disappointing! I did love the ending however!

Enduring Love | Ian McEwan

A man is killed in an attempt to save a child in a hot-air balloon being tossed by the wind. A stranger named Jed Parry joins Joe Rose, a science writer, to bring the balloon to safety. Unknown to Rose, Parry becomes obsessed with Rose to the point where it threatens the love of his wife, Clarissa, and drives Rose to the brink of murder and madness. It‘s a novel of love, faith and suspense and how life can change in an instant. A must read!

The Children Act | Ian McEwan

Fiona Maye, High Court judge, is childless and her marriage of 30 years is in crises. She is called to a trying case where Adam, 17 year old boy, is refusing for religious reasons the medical treatment that could save his life. She visits the boy in the hospital and the encounter stirs feelings of powerful emotions in both of them. I found this book to be an excellent story and would highly recommend it!
