Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Innocent: A Novel (Taschenbuch)
This book has a dark edge to it. Leonard, the central character finds himself lodged in a tangle of intrigues that lead to one barbaric act. At each moment I wondered what would happen next. This novel contains many interesting elements including cold-war paranoia, American bravado, romance, tragedy and a portrayal of the depths of depravity a trapped human can fall into. Ian McEwan is a masterful storyteller who clearly enjoys the unravelling of a story before the reader's eyes. He gives just enought information to lure us further into his story. It's great reading on the commute to and from work!
