I don’t want to run out of time, I have things I want to do here, and I don’t want to be reminded that the truth is it doesn’t matter whether I run out of time or not because eventually there isn’t going to be anyone left who ever knew me, or my family, or anyone we ever knew. It was a little bit difficult to get into the story due to its slow beginning and the lengthy introduction, which is the main reason for why I deducted one half-star from my rating and finally rounded it down to 4 stars.

In her self-deprecation her interpretation is harsh. I thought that was the one 3. I didn’t really like the gruesome army scenes and this movie was just a bit depressing, since the ending wasn’t necessarily happy.

What I do remember is the ending, which I was left with my mouth open wide. The characters and situations mcedan so obviously phony that it becomes distracting in the first part of the story. Before I go off on a rant about anatomy, let me talk about the novel. It touches on imagination versus reality, fiction versus fact, in addition to the story content.

It was only when she was nearly 70 that she could set it down as L’Amant. View all 12 comments. Plus I don’t think that neither Keira Knightley, nor …more In my opinion, the movie is similar in atmosphere at times, but the book is infinitely better.

C’era la commedia da mettere in scena, i cugini arrivati dal nord per trascorrere qualche tempo in casa Tallis, e da Londra era atteso l’amatissimo fratello Leon con un amico, industriale della cioccolata.

Sounds a little dry, right? That said, I loved the Tallis women, and was particularly impressed by McEwan’s insights into what it means to be a woman; see Briony’s wry observation in the closing section about the veteran colonel who resents the sepiazione presumption of writing about war. Yes, Ian, we see what you did there.

These 3 locations in Mcewna The first half gives us an intense story about a family who lives in some kind of a mansion in England.

I thought the purpose of this book was to tell a s This.

There in lies the tragedy: Overall, I enjoyed parts of it. The ending made a lot of people angry, apparently, but I loved it. Civilians were getting blown to bits, soldiers were being left to die, villages were turning to rubble She didn’t know what she was doing, they say; she was too young to understand the import of her actions, and we shouldn’t hold her responsible.

Ian McEwan’s writing style is very wordy. Her love for order, for the careful design according to her spoiled desires, is translated into an impulse to write that hardly depend on the theme. Briony Tallis, a thirteen-year-old girl who has a dream of becoming a famous author, witnesses and misunderstands the sexual tension between her older sister Cecilia and the gardener Robbie Turner, with her mistake leading to years of remorse, hate, solitude — and atonement.

I don’t think this is a trick; I think he’s saying something about the very nature of writing.

Then the question became for me–if they seemed real because of the way the scenes were written the gore again in the hospitalbut could not have been real because the characters and overall plot of the Tallis family are so fake, isn’t that cheating?

Espiazion all, in his nod to the art of metafiction, McEwan makes the novel not really his novel at all, but rather one written by his character Briony Tallis, so that all but the last mcewwan of the book, which is told first-person by Briony, becomes a novel within the novel.


I think exasperation at a nosy child whom you adore but all of a sudden can’t approach because her vivid imagination has turned to fear is sufficient emotion.

But I disagree so strongly with some of the opinions expressed that I’m afraid I have to exercise my right to reply. As the title indicates Atonement is about a future artist’s massive effort to redeem herself for ruining the character of a young man when she is a younger girl.

We question whether we do right or wrong, but we also espiazine what is construct and what is real, and whether our perceptions and perspectives define the terms. What a lovely reread this was!

Aug 28, Bart rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Our lives are not simply in black and white, but gray, too. I am yet to watch the movie and I sincerely hope it amuses me better. Less than a day. I know I’m grasping at straws, but I want to believe Briony was wrong.

Atonement by Ian McEwan

Esplazione, I completely disagree. And only in a story could you enter these different minds and show how they had an equal value.

There is no one, no entity or higher form that she can appeal to, or be reconciled with, or that can forgive her. View all 8 comments. Separate different tags with a comma. Refresh and try again.
