On Chesil Beach: a novel by Ian McEwan
Having been familiar with McEwan's style of writing from reading Atonement, I was very captivated by this hauntingly emotional novel about the honeymoon of a newlywed couple. The main characters are both going through their own set of nerves and uneasiness. The way McEwan is able to weave their back story with the couple's present situation is fantastic, and the prose flows very naturally.
