I knew there was a reason McEwan was one of my favorite authors of all-time. I highly, highly recommend this book. It just blew me away.

This is a very short book, just 200 pages, and the bulk of the story takes place over just a few hours, with some flashbacks interspersed here and there. It's the story of Edward and Florence on their wedding night in 1963. It's about love and sex and marriage and the inability to communicate. Definitely a new favorite.
