Book : “Saturday” by Ian McEwan
Review : “Thus, when Henry Perowne, a neurosurgeon, wakes from his bed before dawn, feeling 'alert and empty-headed and inexplicably elated' and sees a plane coming down over the Post Office Tower, trailing a fireball from its wing, it seems a portent every bit as doom-laden as the sighting of comets in Shakespeare. Worse, Perowne's world is, on this Saturday morning, entirely sure on its axis. McEwan quickly establishes him as a man of profound competence and one who never stops counting the blessings of a loving marriage and a pair of beautiful and talented children. You can hardly bear to watch.”
Ian McEwan's dazzling novel takes just a single day to explore society itself, but this is a Saturday like no other, says Tim Adams, UK Guardian
