Book Review of Atonement

Author: Ian McEwan
Genre: Literature & Fiction
Book Type: Hardcover
reviewed Loved the movie, book is better on + 2 more book reviews

While I loved the movie, the book is better because the characters are truely brought to life.

The author has a knack for discribing the details around the characters. I will admit, at times, can slow the story down, but you get a true sence of what is going on.

The young girl's imagaination is quite vivid. You understand more clearly through the book, then the movie, why the young girl did what she did.

Read it and you will understand what I mean.
