I just finished reading Atonement by Ian McEwan..

Honestly, I wasn't personally a fan of this novel.
Though it was written quite beautifully and very detailed...
I kind of thought it was boring and wanted something to actually happen.

The beginning is slightly exciting and very interesting with different perspectives,
but the middle in very dull and detailed.
Then the ending is disappointing and still slightly dull...

Like I said, this was beautifully written and the storyline is definitely worth reading, but this must not be my taste for novels.

The story follows the innocent mind of a young girl who ruins a man's life,
with just one little lie... Her older sister hates her for it as well, for she was in love with this man and he was sentenced to time in prison and looked at poorly after the false accusations of this young girl.
It goes on to the man fighting in the war and trying to survive so he can see his love again, as well as how the young girl matures and realizes what she did while trying to mend things with her sister and lives forever with guilt.

This book is set back in the 1930's or 1940's during the war.

I personally wanted to reach into the book and punch the girl for being so arrogant.
