    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.

    Deena says: "Extraordinary"
    "Wonderful, absorbing"
    Overall

    You have to like a meditative, introspective literary narrator but this book is eloquent, with many perfect moments to it. True, the reader's attempt at women's voices is pretty bad, but I forgave that because I was so caught up in the book.

    From the Booker Prize-winning author of The Remains of the Day and When We Were Orphans, comes an unforgettable edge-of-your-seat mystery that is at once heartbreakingly tender and morally courageous about what it means to be human.

    Christopher says: "Moving, haunting, but slow developing"
    "Extraordinary fiction"
    Overall

    One of the best books I've read. Ishiguro's literary finesse is impressive as he pulls the reader delicately into the story only to surprise you with what he's really up to. A masterful look at childhood and character turns into something much larger, a subtle and skillful look at how social values become hopelessly compromised. A love story that engages us with a coming moral dilemma.
