IMPAC Dublin Literary Award FINALIST 1999
"A remarkable novel, haunting and original and written in prose that anyone who writes can only envy."
"Impeccably written–[McEwan] is the quietest and most lucid of stylists, with never a word wasted or fumbled."
–New York Review of Books
"A timeless tale about the way fate and faith shape our relationships–part existential fable about the human desire to control fate, [Enduring Love] is also, most affectingly, a story about the strength and fragility of married love."
"Eerie, slow-paced suspense worth its weight in caffeine for keeping you up all night."
"[A] beautifully realized–novel about our responses to violence. It asks us to choose between competing visions of events, and, in the process, forces us to examine the way we react to both art and life when something terrible happens."
"McEwan’s writing–is unflaggingly poised and, as usual, capable of excavating deep, painful trenches in the back corridors of the psyche and the heart."
"Cleverly imagined, beautifully executed –Mr. McEwan
has few peers."
–The Wall Street Journal
