Although on the Booker prize shortlist in 1998 this is not a book I would recommend to any of my friends.Was it the clever,complicated plot ,the fact that there were three main subjects with their various problems and very different spheres of activity or that there were only a few parts I could visualize? Maybe the plot was just too clever and contrived. However, the chapter where the composer goes to the Lake District for total isolation with no distractions was very graphic and the scene with the champagne glasses was also very descriptive . The clever and unexpected end was a good twist in the tail.That said, four weeks after reading the book I couldn't remember the plot and had to skim the book to be able to write this review.

Amsterdam

by MaryEllen on Mar 21, 2009

I liked this book, very much. This is the 3rd book I have read by this author, and each one I have liked for different reasons. Amsterdam, was very funny at times, but also very dark and sinister throughout. It starts off with the death/ and funeral of Molly Lane--and her relationships with her husband George, her friends and ex-lover's , composer Clive Linley and newspaper editor Vernon Halliday. Ian McEwan delves into the importance of marriage & friendships. How narrow minded, people can be. How forgiving others can be, in extrordinary circumstances, how full of themselves some people can be, how some can lose their way and all of their morales. We see how quickly tables can turn. This book has everything from infedeltiy, dirty pictures, to politicians. I found the ending somewhat shocking, but at the same time it became clear why the title was Amsterdam. The ending was brilliant.
