Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm still deciding if this was brilliant or if this manipulated me--which may be a good sign either way. I liked this a lot--not loved but liked.
I did enjoy the subplots in this story. I believe the book would have been better had it been 20-30 pages shorter BUT I will go back through this book and highlight all the names and books and events and WORDS that I should know.
I shouldn't have been surprised at the end because the author gave me clues all along but I was surprised and I was surprised that I was caught off guard and yet I still am wondering about reader manipulation. That said, I really liked the ending. Totally a book of contradictions.
P.S. This book will not be released until November 2012.
