  1. My dearest Tom,Upon reading your letter, my first impulse was to burn the accompanying package, walk away, and be done with us forever But, as you seem to have uncannily predicted, I ve now spent a couple of days and nights in your flat, devouring your manuscript and sleeping in between the sheets, nicely ironed Given that you were in Paris and out of reach, there was no possibility of my responding to you immediately, so I had the luxury of abandoning myself to an extended period of reflection [...]

  2. What a disappointment the vivid passions that animate Atonement even its trick , which in retrospect seems too similar have become cramped cleverness, just as, perhaps, the heroic World War II London of Atonement becomes the gray decline of the early 70s London of Sweet Tooth To sum it up, I was very disappointed There is a lot of erudition on show here about the Cold War, about the history of British intelligence, and especially, always, about books and literature But to what end Even when you [...]

  3. I ve read all of McEwan s short stories and novels, and it s only now that I can see why his endings bother some readers including readers like his main character, Serena And if you are a different, and certain, kind of reader one unlike Serena you will have criticisms of his narratorial voice, but at the end, McEwan has an answer for every single one of them from why Serena sounds the way she does to those paddings of the backward glance quote from the book He has anticipated them all, and answ [...]

  4. The opening paragraph of Sweet Tooth reveals the story s end, which is a tidy way of compelling you, dear reader, to focus on the important parts the middle and such You know it ends badly, so you can t possibly be disappointed therefore, don t worry about it.But then you remember that you are reading Ian McEwan, master of unreliable narrators and oft tricksy endings, and you wonder am I being told the truth of the ending as it is, or the truth as the narrator would have me see it And suddenly y [...]

  5. My introduction to the fiction of Ian McEwan is Sweet Tooth, the author s 2012 literary thriller that aroused my senses like spying on an attractive woman in a London used bookstore might while on a diplomatic mission, of course Rather than run wild with the fantastical elements of espionage with ninjas, neurotoxins or nightclubs this is an atmospheric document of our narrator s affairs, with the professional careening into the sexual and literature directing her fate The novel is a book lover s [...]

  6. To pigeonhole Sweet Tooth into a specific genre will be an act of folly In the beginning it gives off the impression of a mere Cold war era spy thriller, then steps with casual ease into the territory of metafiction and in the end it changes tack and becomes a meditation on romance But even so it never appears indecisive or loses sight of what it sets out to do which is to juxtapose several contrasting themes and give us a fast paced yet compelling human drama unfolding against the bleak backdro [...]

  7. In my review of On Chesil Beach, I commented that I hadn t read any of McEwan s work since being profoundly disturbed by The Child in Time when I read it in the late 1980s On Chesil Beach made me realise that I wanted to read McEwan I was therefore interested in this novel as soon as I saw it on the new releases table in my local bookstore I elected to listen to the audiobook narrated by Juliet Stevenson, as it was cheaper for me to acquire than the text version and I knew from past experience [...]

  8. The American edition of Sweet Tooth, Ian McEwan s latest novel, has a delightful cover an image of a woman standing at a train station, looking over the tracks and into the distance The image is in sepia, and the font in which the author and the title are printed have obviously been carefully prepared to resemble the classic paperback covers from the 70 s The effect is quite delightful and definitely works It is also dedicated to the late Christopher Hitchens brought that fine man back to my min [...]

  9. If you want to read an Ian McEwan novel, choose a different one McEwan has long been one of my favorite authors, but Sweet Tooth was hugely unsatisfying for me I struggled to get through it the plot dragged and the characters were both unbelievable and unlikable It was well written, but it lacked the emotional depth and psychological insight that to me is the mark of a great McEwan novel The book has been marketed as a spy thriller, and you ll be especially disappointed if you start reading with [...]

  11. Ian McEwan leaves me a little speechless, like an encounter with a movie star might, though I m much impressed by his writing ability and sense of what drives people, than I am by good looks and 20M a movie That said, I have met him and, for a gentleman of a certain age, he is quite attractive, and I dare say, not poor Each page of his books, and Sweet Tooth is no exception, makes me swoon a little So, while parts of Sweet Tooth were a little lost on my dim bulb I ll never fully grasp the diffe [...]

  12. Thanks for nothing, Ian McEwan.I really don t appreciate view spoiler the mindfuck hide spoiler Yes, yes, you re very clever.Two stars because the writing is good and I liked the story.Minus three stars for being a jerk.I m NOT ENJOYING this recent obsession with view spoiler meta, hide spoiler authors dearest.UPDATE 10 06 2014 On a personal level, I was enjoying the heck out of the book and psychoanalyzing the main character I was pleased as punch at how cold and even exhibiting some sort of p [...]

  13. I would like to know Ian McEwan to be the kind of friend who meets him for lunch If I were, I d say, All right, Ian, give it up Tell me straight How do you know what it feels like to be a woman How do you know the sensations, the thoughts women rarely say about being with men Don t lie I promise I ll keep it a secret I think all good writers become their characters and hence, they are writing from an authentic place that is much bigger than who they are in day to day life Plus, there is always r [...]

  14. You need to have a thing for dark atmospheric novels Sour Tooth would be fitting It s certainly not a thriller and it s a spy novel only in the literal sense Timeline the 70 s, the intrigue of London s M5 during the cold war really just background ambience for this character driven novel It opens My name is Serena Frome and almost forty years ago I was sent on a secret mission for the British security service I didn t return safely Within eighteen months of joining I was sacked, having disgrace [...]

  15. This was really reading totally outside any genre of interest to me Something about the cover got me I m shallow like that.Clever, but not terribly likeable, girl goes to Cambridge to study Maths which she doesn t work at she d rather be reading novels but her main motivating factor is lurrrrrve It would be, wouldn t it So she falls in love with an older slightly mysterious married man which leads to a job as a real life spy So of course she falls in lurrrrve with the guy who is the mark And it [...]

  16. This is my third McEwan novel, so I am not veteran enough to compare elements of SWEET TOOTH to his large body of work, but a few aspects of his talent brought me back to ATONEMENT, which is one of my favorite British contemporary novels, and SOLAR, has last novel ATONEMENT proved that McEwan pens female characters with finesse even complex, conflicted girls like thirteen year old Briony Tallis In SWEET TOOTH, he kicks the femme character up a notch by writing in the first person perspective of [...]

  17. Just some open ended thoughts And spoilers, too, I suppose I wonder if one of the reasons Serena is such a weak, passive, shallow main character is because, despite the first person POV, McEwan can t quite bring himself to inhabit her He has diluted her by having another character write her spy on her whom McEwan himself is writing spying on.Note In an interview promoting this book McEwan claimed that he has a prejudice against first person narratives There are too many of them They re too easy [...]

  18. On the one hand, the heroine s insights on the whys and hows of other people s actions felt empowering Her ongoing evaluation of the ultimate reasons for about everyone s actions was quite formidable On the other hand, her emotional rollercoaster felt incredibly weird Are there really people who do pay that much attention to their emotions Sweet, lingering prose Beautiful language, intoxicating imagery An intersection of many styles of writing A very memorable book to read in languor Oh, my God [...]

  19. I just started reading Sweet Tooth this morning before getting out of bedMy My, I can see I m in for delightful Ian McEwan ridewith his key narrator female Serena an Professor Tony.I wasn t crazy about Ian s last book Solar r a fan of Chesil Beach but a huge fan of most other books he wrote his early books So far Sweet Tooth has the feel of what I love best about Ian McEwan He knows woman He knows men He knows about relationships Sweet Tooth is this type of book I can see enough meat coming I m [...]

  20. Self ReferentialI could see someone writing a three star review of McEwan s latest novel almost as easily as a five star one view spoiler Dropped to four stars on because although I can remember a lot of the what of the novel on recollection, I can recall almost none of the why its theme or focus Rereading this review has helped me to do so, but for a five star book I shouldn t have to hide spoiler But not I For the moment the book arrived and I read the first paragraph, I breathed a huge sigh o [...]

  21. Love and Deception and Love Sweet Tooth is set in the first few years of the 1970 s at the height of the cold war Serena, who is anything but serene, is attending Cambridge studying maths at her mother s insistence She earns a third, poor girl She d much rather be studying English Literature because all her life she s devoured book after book searching for an ever romantic I do To her delight she has a few love affairs while at school and one of her beaux leads her to a job at MI5 upon graduati [...]

  22. This is a Reader s book It is about writing, about words, and about the power of words It is about the pen being wielded in the same battlefields as the sword, and sometimes with the same amount of ignorance.Serena is a young woman, and a babe in the woods when it comes to being an operative in MI5 back in the early 70s She stumbles into her new career and is thrilled with the glamour she thinks must surely be just around the corner when one works for that secret department She eagerly hopes for [...]

  23. Spies, the 1970s, the Cold War, romance, intrigue and a master storyteller to put it all together for us.

  24. the book started out really well for me and i was sucked right into the story the book is dedicated to christopher hitchens it s meta fiction many authors and books, as well as a book award the austen prize, which is better than the newly founded booker feature on the pages of this novel butound the halfway two thirds mark got a bitring which was disappointing given the book also features mi5, spyishness and a bit of mystery it could have been snap, crackle, pop a lopping off the pages, but it w [...]

  25. Gosto de Mel.Da sua cor dourada e l mpida Da sua textura espessa e cremosa Do seu sabor suave e quente Da sua extrema do ura, salpicada de um t nue aroma a flores Como uma abelha mestra, Ian McEwan tece um favo de palavras, dentro do qual disp e situa es e personagens fabulosas, que se unem e separam atrav s do que faz a vida ser vida amor, ci me, morte, tristeza, saudade, solid o, IMAGINA O O contexto, espacial, temporal, e hist rico, em que as personagens se movimentam espionagem, guerra fria, [...]

  26. What I took to be the norm taut, smooth, supple was the transient special case of youth To me, the old were a separate species, like sparrows or foxes.Sweet Tooth is a deceit There is a masque of espionage at play There are feints, there are lies The reader weaves as in concert, only to discover the ruse This work also concerns a portrait of the early 70s, one of orange miniskirts and sanitation strikes This is also a novel about deceit, especially literary deceit This particular knot takes plac [...]

  27. Alla fine, quando ho bisogno di volermi un po bene, di lasciare che le parole mi affabulino almeno per un po , leggo McEwan La sua capacit di sintetizzare il tempo o di espanderlo in maniera esponenziale mi affascina E il loro matrimonio di nove anni smorto, appiattito dalle preoccupazioni e dal duro lavoro Guastato dagli occasionali litigi, solitamente a proposito di soldi Nove anni in una frase che racchiude tutto La fine di ottobre port con se il rito annuale di mettere indietro gli orologi, [...]

  28. I ll have to think about this My first reaction is 2 stars I might change that.January 16 Okay, I ve thought about it and my star rating remains at two stars The following are my reasons why First, I want you to know I am an Ian McEwan fan, but this book disappoints I find all the characters glib, unlikable and unbelievable, full of themselves, predictable and boring The writing seems, to me, to be self conscious and contrived and the narrative is sterile, lacking any warmth Sweet Tooth takes pl [...]

  29. I hovered between a 2 1 2 and 3 star review here and ultimately knocked it up a notch simply because the final chapter salvaged some of the loathing I had for this book and turned it into an okay feeling The main character is femalebut not really She s really just a player in someone else s game She has little agency, and she s written in a way that makes you question if the writer knows how to write women at all She falls in love with nearly every man she meets and can think of little but the n [...]

  30. Rating 3.5 starsI have been frequently and frustratingly disappointed by Ian McEwan, so this was actually better than I expected But I had to get all the way to the end before I felt like my time reading it was justified.
