Review: On Chesil Beach - Ian McEwan

Genre: Fiction
ISBN: 9780307386175
Pages: 203
Format: Trade Paperback
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Read in: July 2011

Just a joy to read. First , it is a good quick read. Definitely a beach read. It is beautifully written and simply "breathtaking". I love the purity of it all and the simple messages it holds. You would have to read it to completely agree. I love the line at the end "This is how the entire course of a life can be changed - by doing nothing." I thought it summed up the whole book and I thought it was a genius way to wrap up the book.

This is such a simple book that carries so much meaning. I really recommend it.
