Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The Booker Prize winner and bestselling author of Atonement brilliantly illuminates the collision of sexual longing, deep-seated fears, and romantic fantasy on a young couple’s wedding night.

“No one now writing in English surpasses or even matches McEwan's accomplishment." —The Washington Post Book World


It is 1962, and Florence and Edward are celebrating their wedding in a hotel on the Dorset coast. Yet as they dine, the expectation of their marital duties become overwhelming. Unbeknownst to them both, the decisions they make this night will resonate throughout their lives. With exquisite prose, Ian McEwan creates in On Chesil Beach a story of lives transformed by a gesture not made or a word not spoken.

This novel is brilliant. It talks about a topic that no one really talks about. Beautifully written.

I ordered this book and read it thru page 389 and then it stopped down loading. Don’t get involved with BookBub

Small and perfect

If you want action, look elsewhere. This novel considers—among many aspects of humanity—the power of what’s not said. Here is a brief book where not a word seems wasted. It is as structured as a piece of music and as true as real life.
