Wish List Wednesdays #4


The latest book that has made its appearance on my wish list was Ian McEwan' The Comfort of Strangers. I have recently seen the film (starring Rupert Everett, Natasha Richardson, Helen Mirren and Christopher Walken) and found it contemplative and cathartic. I would love to get to read this book, and also Ian McEwan's other books (Atonement, for example).

As their holiday unfolds, Colin and Maria are locked into their own intimacy. They groom themselves meticulously, as though someone is waiting for them who cares deeply about how they appear. When they meet a man with a disturbing story to tell, they become drawn into a fantasy of violence and obsession.

What's on your wishlist?

I have only ever attempted to read one of his books 'Saturday' and I found it really boring, but I have heard that 'Cement Garden' is good as well as 'Atonement'

The book is eerie and disturbing, although the writing is crisp.
