Default Re: Ian McEwan

Well that NY Times just about sums up my feelings. An exquisite bore indeed. I can't help feeling that McEwan needs to give a little more thought to the tale rather than the telling of it. I also agree with the David Lodge comparison made somewhere else. It is a little like Lodge but with all the rough edges taken off and most of the charm lost. Impressive but hard to love.
