Saturday by Ian McEwan

Saturday by Ian McEwan
289 pages

This book was very, very British. So British that I was often surprised by how much I related to the protagonist--who is as different from me as he is from his daughter. But it was interesting to examine how often his abstract thoughts coincided with ones that I've had from time to time, and how often his observations carried a ring of truth for me. The book could have been horribly dull, but instead it was fascinating.
