Having read several other McEwan novels and being under the opinion that he is one of the great Novelists of his generation there is a danger that I may be bias in my review, however, as I am not only a fan of McEwan but other novelist, I shall keep in retrospect his achievemnet in Saturday when comparing to the likes of my Tan or Mitch Albom, two other authors who are more than deserving of a mention.
So, Saturday, 2001, the 9/11 bombings are still fresh in the mind of the entire world and the taliban mind games reach as far as to the London public, this including the central character who is a renound brain surgeon and family man. The afformentioned is on his way to a meeting when a car crashes into his. Brilliant stuff................ I tells yee, and in the words of Noel fielding - Genius!
