    Walker & Daughter is Georgia Walker's little yarn shop, tucked into a quiet storefront on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The Friday Night Knitting Club is the ad hoc creation of some of Georgia's regulars, who stroll into the shop looking for tips on knitting and end up finding much, much more. Once a week, they gather to work on their latest projects and to chat - and occasionally clash - over their stories of love, life, and everything in between.

    I rarely give up on a book. This one just drove me to throw it over and to look for something else. Honestly, I'm not sure how it got published in the first place. Have editors been decommissioned to the point that an entire book can be made up of trite cliche'd phrases?

    I love to knit. I hate this book.

    Story

    New York Times best-selling author Ian McEwan's novels have inspired sweeping critical acclaim and won such prestigious awards as the Booker Prize for Amsterdam and the National Book Critics Circle Award for his modern masterpiece, Atonement. With Saturday, McEwan has crafted perhaps his most unique achievement to date.

    Overall

    I thought this novel was strong were it should have been understated while it was understated where it should have been strong.

    The central story of the bad man who comes into the life of the protagonist sometimes seems a little thin, whereas the smallest detail of this day in the life story can be laid on a little thick.

    The subplot of the Iraq War protests are very interesting seen from our current point of view.
