On Chesil Beach, by Ian McEwen

On Chesil Beach book coverI picked up On Chesil Beach on Tuesday night and finished reading it before work on Wednesday morning. It’s an absolutely delightful read but heartwrenchingly sad. Well written, wonderful imagery and two beautiful but inexperienced main characters. This is the second novel of Ian McEwan’s that I’ve read and I’m looking forward to reading more of his work.

4 stars.
