ATONEMENT On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her older sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge I not the fountain in the garden of their country house. Watching Cecilia is their housekeeper's son Robbie Turner, a childhood friend who, along with Briony's sister, has recently graduated from Cambridge. By the end of the day the lives of all three will have been changed forever. Robbie and Cecilia will have crossed a boundary they had not dared to approach and will have become victims of the younger girl's scheming imagination. And Briony will have committed a dreadful crime, the guilt for which will color her entire life. Atonement is at its center a profound and profoundly moving exploration of shame and forgiveness, and the difficulty in absolution.

    rbtanger: I know that the Library Thing Recommendations aren't always completely spot-on, but I just want to say that if I were writing the recommend list, The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood would be top of the list.

this novel is divided into four sections (the last of which is only a handful of pages). the first part is about half the book and is absolutely masterful in every way. 5 stars on every level. the writing, the tension building, the pacing. i've rarely been so anxious reading - too nervous about what momentous thing i knew was about the happen to keep reading, but also anxious about not reading because i needed to know what was about to happen. perfect in just about every way. at first the second section felt this way to me as well, with such amazing descriptions and feelings of war and being right there with the injuries and the soldiers. i don't usually appreciate war writing for long, though, and this stayed true here and continued mostly through until the very end, where he lets us know the the reunion between robbie and cecelia was made up by briony.

i really enjoyed the way he set up the misunderstandings. not just that briony was too young to understand what was going on, and so misunderstood. but all the misunderstandings that everyone else had as well. the assumptions made and the motives assigned. he handled all this so well.

while i didn't love the second half of the book as much as the first, i am so impressed by this and by his writing. ( )

I'm not sure what this one was trying to say, and I'm not sure it really does either. The overarching message seems to be that little girls are unreliable witnesses (fair) and that this makes them the devil incarnate (not fair). Also, war is bad. Which needed to be added to kill off the characters, I suppose. ( )

On the hottest day of the summer of 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis sees her sister Cecilia strip off her clothes and plunge into the fountain in the garden of their country house.

Watching her too is Robbie Turner who, like Cecilia, has recently come down from Cambridge. By the end of that day, the lives of all three will have been changed for ever, as Briony commits a crime for which she will spend the rest of her life trying to atone.

Set against the backdrop of WWII, this is a tale of young love, misdeeds and atonement. Beautifully written as always by McEwan, it's a great read.

Briony, aged 13, "a priggish, conceited girl" witnesses an interaction between her sister and a young man. Her misinterpretation and youthful impulsivity ruins the lives around her. She spends the rest of her life trying to rewrite the ending of her crime. ( )

Not a likable character in the lot. Made it hard to get through. I quit halfway, only to pick it back up after book club members suggested it got better in the second half. It did, but still... groan. ( )

McEwan is technically at the height of his powers, and can do more or less anything he likes with the novel form. He shows this fact off in the first section of Atonement, in which he does one of the hardest things a good writer can do: engrossingly, sustainedly, and convincingly impersonate a bad one.
adicionado por jburlinson | editarNew York Review of Books, John Lanchester (Web site pago) (Apr 11, 2002)
 
McEwan is crafty. Even as he shows us the damages of story-telling, he demonstrates its beguilements on every page. Atonement is full of timeworn literary contrivances--an English country house, lovers from different classes, an intercepted letter--rendered with the delicately crafted understanding of E.M. Forster.
adicionado por Shortride | editarTime, Richard Lacayo (Mar 25, 2002)
 
If it's plot, suspense and a Bergsonian sensitivity to the intricacies of individual consciousnesses you want, then McEwan is your man and ''Atonement'' your novel. It is his most complete and compassionate work to date.
 
Ian McEwan's remarkable new novel ''Atonement'' is a love story, a war story and a story about the destructive powers of the imagination. It is also a novel that takes all of the author's perennial themes -- dealing with the hazards of innocence, the hold of time past over time present and the intrusion of evil into ordinary lives -- and orchestrates them into a symphonic work that is every bit as affecting as it is gripping. It is, in short, a tour de force.
 
Ian McEwan’s new novel, which strikes me as easily his finest, has a frame that is properly hinged and jointed and apt for the conduct of the ‘march of action’, which James described as ‘the only thing that really, for me at least, will produire L’OEUVRE’.

"Dear Miss Morland, consider the dreadful nature of the suspicions you have entertained. What have you been judging from? Remember the country and the age in which we live. Remember that we are English: that we are Christians. Consult your own understanding, your own sense of the probable, your own observation of what is passing around you. Does our education prepare us for such atrocities? Do our laws connive at them? Could they be perpetrated without being known in a country like this, where social and literary intercourse is on such a footing, where every man is surrounded by a neighbourhood of voluntary spies, and where roads and newspapers lay everything open? Dearest Miss Morland, what ideas have you been admitting?"
     They had reached the end of the gallery; and with tears of shame she ran off to her own room.
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
"Querida señorita Morland, considere la terrible naturaleza de las sospechas que ha albergado. ¿En qué se basa para emitir sus juicios? Recuerde el país y la época en la que vivimos. Recuerde que somos ingleses: que somos cristianos. Utilice su propio entendimiento, su propio sentido de las probabilidades, su propia observación de lo que ocurre alrededor. ¿Acaso nuestra educación nos prepara para atrocidades semejantes? ¿Acaso las consienten nuestras leyes? ¿Podrían perpetrarse sin que se supiese en un país como éste, donde las relaciones sociales y literarias están reglamentadas, donde todo el mundo vive rodeado de un vecindario de espías voluntarios, y donde las carreteras y los periódicos lo ponen todo al descubierto?. Queridísima señorita Morland ¿qué ideas ha estado concibiendo?-
Habían llegado al final del pasillo y, con lágrimas de vergüenza, Catherine huyó corriendo a su habitación".
Jane Austen. La abadía de Northanger

The play—for which Briony had designed posters, programs and tickets, constructed the sales booth out of a folding screen tipped on its side, and lined the collection box in red crêpe paper—was written by her in a two-day tempest of composition, causing her to miss a breakfast and a lunch.
Citações
Informação do Conhecimento Comum em inglês. Edite para a localizar na sua língua.
Novels and movies, being relentlessly modern, propel you forwards or backwards through time, through days, years or even generations. But to do its noticing and judging, poetry balances itself on the pinprick of the moment. Slowing down, stopping yourself completely, to read and understand a poem is like trying to acquire an old-fashioned skill like drystone walling or trout tickling.
How much growing up do you need to do?
It wasn’t only wickedness and scheming that made people unhappy, it was confusion and misunderstanding; above all, it was the failure to grasp the simple truth that other people are as real as you.
A person is, among all else, a material thing, easily torn and not easily mended.
Find you, love you, marry you, and live without shame.
