Recently Finished: Atonement – Ian McEwan

Thought that this might be a good way to keep track of my reading. So whenever I finish a book, I will post about it.


Written in 2001 by British author Ian McEwan and shortlisted for the Booker Prize (McEwan won the 1998 Booker Prize for Amsterdam).

McEwan professed his innocence and several high profile authors leapt to his defence, including the reclusive Thomas Pynchon (Gravity’s Rainbow).
