Excellent. A novel set as a memoir of a family during the period just after the II WW and early 1980s. Very thought provoking. About a couple who love each other but cannot live with each other, one an extremely rational being and the other is searching for more than rational ideologies.

A short, political pre-Atonement novel from McEwan. So I think the black dogs are some kind of symbol, but there are real dogs too.

I hated the nonsense she filled her head with, but I loved her seriousness.
