Summer Reading List 2015: The Children Act, Post 1

The Children Act - Ian McEwan

The weather doesn't matter, nor whether the Twins won, nor any other factor. You know it's a good summer Saturday when you spend it reading an Ian McEwan book. Literary happiness -- or should I say literary satisfaction -- for McEwan's world is seldom happy, but I am happy with his book in my hands.
