Return to Book Page. This is the second book written by Ian McEwan, which includes 7 very disturbing short stories. The next piece, after which the whole collection is titled is endearingly strange and quite disturbing.
This is either the highest compliment or the highest criticism, depending on what you want to take with you. I guess I have a very different view from most people here. I think The Cement Garden is the best of early Ian.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Thanks for telling us about the problem. He is a young writer in these stories, and they are missing some of the gravity that entrd in his later works.

Jan 16, Mary Mcewann rated it really liked entrw. I had forgotten how dark some of the early McEwan writing used to be, having become comfortable with his more recent novels.
It has been described as reptilian, or as a repulsive inorganic stench, or again, as a sharp, womanly odor Am I alone in feeling that way?
Marcha story about a father and his daughter in post-apocalyptic London: These stories do make for depressed reader but their realism and at the same time their dreamlike quality stand out.
Reflections of a Kept Ape was, as the title suggests – about a pet ape, however, the interesting detail is that the story is told from the ape’s perspective. This is some weird shit, well written weird shit, but weird shit nonetheless. Some of the endings left me completely hanging with no clue about what just happened. At once chilling and beguiling, and written in prose of lacerating beauty, In Between the Sheets is a tour de force by one of England’s most acclaimed practitioners of literary unease.

Every other story ends weakly: A jaded millionaire buys himself the perfect mistress and plunges into a hell of jealousy and despair.
Apr 13, Bethany rated it liked it Shelves: Psychoticexplosive and sensual writing style: I recommend going in with low expectations and then keeping an open mind. I heard about this mcewn the Books on the Nightstand podcast.
I would like it a lot if not for the author’s adolescent obsession with effluvia: Probably I prefer these ugly and ‘perverted’ ’70s to the ’70s described by McEwan in ‘Sweet tooth’ I personally found the book a bit sabajas and other than the first story didn’t really enjoy it very much, but the subject matter nonetheless is taboo enough and described in such Hitchcockian detail that we are left no choice but to shift from foot to foot, hoping what is about to happen, isn’t.
Of course there are flaws. A brilliant story about an English man staying in Sabahas Angeles for vacation, his problems with loneliness and not finding a purpose or a place to belong. Aug 01, Brendan Monroe rated it did not like it Shelves: I knew it was early Sabaans so I was hoping for something more along the lines of The Comfort of Strangers but these are more focused on the concept in each story than the relationship between the characters.
Found myself deeply disturbed, and really, I am not easily so. I would recommend sabanae book but not to the prude of heart.
These two are further character studies and both stand out because of their subject matter, but also because McEwan places the reader inside the narrators’ minds – their feelings, thoughts, insecurities, and passions are acutely and uncomfortably laid bare for the reader.
The collection of stories oan transform the ordinary into the fantastical and grotesque but at the same time are careful treatments of marginalised characters. McEwan’s works have earned him worldwide critical acclaim. I think its post apocalyptic where sabwnas is no electricity or cars or no signals and the condition of humans are miserable.
I enjoyed this book because I felt that it was very well crafted. These characters are unafraid to tell their own stories, in perfect, bewildering candor, and ask us to examine our own consciences, ask us to find that demarkation between fetish and perversion. Call them transcripts of dreams or deadly accurate maps of the tremor zones of the psyche, the seven stories in this collection engage and implicate us in the most fearful ways imaginable.
