I am amased by the contemporary British fiction, but Ian McEwan has won my heart completely with his novels. I like the novels I have been able to get hold on to but I love the Cement garden. It is a magnificent novel about four children trying to adjust to the situation so unusual, unfamiliar and terrifying to them. They have no idea how to act, because their parents (especially father) have been extremely protective and have not communicated normally with the outer world. In this extreme situation they act as they think is right, and frankly, I would have done the same in the same situation. I also love Ian McEwan's style--it is so tense that it is impossible to put the book away, and the descriptions are amasing. The description of the summer was so convincing that while reading I started to feel so hot it was impossible to breathe. I like the novel not only because of the style but because of the way it made me feel. I felt extreme closeness with the children, and it almost made me a part of the family.
