    A superb book about every parent s worst nightmare a child goes missing , but you don t need to be a parent to appreciate it because it is primarily a story of loss, family is it a couple, parents and children or a patriarchal institution such as the RAF , distortions in the perception of time and reality, and of growing up and of regressing Stephen Lewis is a children s author who also sits on a government committee that is meant to produce a handbook on child rearing to regenerate the UK He takes his 3 year old daughter, Kate, to the supermarket, where she is abducted The rest of the story charts the effects on him, his marriage, his relationship with his parents, and his work His life is marked by reacting to circumstances rather than instigating things and thus he is even adrift once Kate is lost.LanguageIt is full of painful ironies Stephen making policy about parenthood, yet losing his own child, while a friend effectively gains one and wonderful imagery In a lonely flat the deadly alignment of familiar possessions the stubborn conspiracy of...

    Aaahbsolute shit The extra star is for the handsome writerly Britishy prose Other than that, yup Shite Turns out McEwan is the most polarizing writer I ve ever encountered The stuff of his I read the I am convinced that someone else wrote the gorgeous epic Atonement, not this classicist douche bag The dude will let you know which caste he belongs to, it is way above yours Even the Prime Minister plays a part in our protagonist s life REVOLTINGGG Perhaps this as...

    My fourth book by Ian McEwan Enduring Love Amsterdam Atonement The I read his works, the I get convinced that he is the author who knows how my brain is wired He knows what I want, what I expect from my reading, how I would like my brain to be stimulated, how to keep me awake and keep on reading till the wee hours of the morning.Reading his books is like drinking a perfect blend just enough decaf coffee, enough non fat milk and brown sugar Those are healthy choices because had I been younger, my perfect author would have been John Green or Suzanne Collins and the coffee components would have been expresso, coffeemate and refined sugar The taste does shift as people grow older and wiser.This 1987 book is included in the 100 Must Read Books for Men and I used to wonder why Ian McEwan is not the type of writer like Mark Bowden with his Black Hawk Down or Anthony Burgess and his Junky McEwan is a sensitive author and his prose, though sexless, would cater on contemporary readers with discriminating ehem taste just like my lady friends here in Goodreads I am not saying that my taste is already the same as theirs I am still hoping and trying to catch up since they ve read far books than I would have wanted to Back to McEwan.The reason why this book is included in men s must reads is because McEwan puts man into an operating room and slices him up to know what he is made off and bares hi...

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz oh yes, where was I Mmm, reviewing The Child in Time by Ian McEwanI remember now To summarise an overview of what it is toa be a childb have a childc lose a childd regress to a child like state with the finally irony being that once you ve gone through the first three and spend a lot of the book daydreaming about what it would be like to get your child back, you choose to ignore and abandon your friend who, for reasons of a personal mental health sexual nature has decided to regress to child like behaviour including the wearing of short pants but not before producing a government sanctioned idiots guide to child rearing along the way.Yes, yes children are important They remind us of that on a daily basis Some do it by screaming bloody murder a lot of the time Mind you some adults I know scream bloody murder a lot of the time too Is that a sign of their inner child escaping My inner child says me no like this b...

    I had high hopes for this one having heard good things about it but although there were elements I liked, I thought it was trying to reconcile too many incompatible elements and some of it seemed rather silly The first part, in which the protagonist loses his daughter when she is apparently abducted in a supermarket, could have been the basis of a stronger but shorter story Instead we get a lot of pseudo science about the elasticity of time, a near future in 1987 terms in which the Thatcher government lasts longer, and a lot of stuff about the nature of childhood experience.I can t resist commenting on one ludicrous detail not only can I see no way a sleeper train from Scotland would ever have been diverted through Su...

    Ok, that s it I m done with Ian McEwan This book was total bullshit This was my third book by the author, and this is why I don t like reading too much by the same writer, especially popular NYT best seller authors I purchased this book because I thought it was going to be about a three year old girl Kate who gets kidnapped at a supermarket while out with her dad True, McEwan wastes no time in describing the kidnapping in the very first chapter of the book, but after that the rest is about inane shit that has little or nothing to do with the kidnapping, guilt, loss and anguish that would normally occur after such a tragic event I despised the main character of the book In true McEwan fashion Stephen Lewis Kate s father is a pretentious self centered snob There was not an ounce of angst, despair, madness, or desperation you d expect in a book about a child who has been kidnapped and whose parents are suppose to be in mourning The story is about Stephen, who often visits his fri...

    The Child in Time is an unusual book with themes of childhood and time It starts with a terrifying event for any parent a child is kidnapped in a grocery store The book explores the effect of this tragedy on the father Stephen, his relationship with his wife, and their different styles of grieving the loss of their daughter.The author, Ian McEwan, plays with time using magical realism where Stephen s present time morphs into an episode in his parents past We see how time can speed up or slow down in our minds depending on whether we are relaxed or in a state of panic such as a traffic accident Mentions of time are sprinkled throughout the book.Some incidents revolve around the idea that there is a future adult in a growing child, and a bit of the child remains in an adult One adult character is trying to experience the childhood he always wished he had Stephen is a member of a government commission on childcare and literacy where the members hear various theories about ...

    It s not correct to say I finished this book I just stopped reading With one exception The Innocent I have put down every McEwan book I tried to read I find his initial premises fascinating, but after 50 pages or so, I start to get bogged down in what I would call over ...

    This was sublime writing that served as an antidote to a couple of books I ve read recently which had technical problems It jumps around time, the writing is fine, the narrative grips your heart and moves there s clarity even as there is metaphor and no neat story, and there is absolutely no showing off The Child in Time is my tenth Ian McEwan book, and the only straight forward aspect here is the title Of the books that I ve read, this is the most daring A child is stolen A child man dies There is a battle between adult and child desires A child is born There is mergence And for all of this, time is a mutable mysterious thing I won t try to analyze this that s a task for each reader But I will say there is a lot to think and feel about way than I can write in a quick re...

    I always have the same reaction to McEwan s books why does an author who can create passages about human disturbance and misery that ring so true insist upon adding elements into every novel that ring so false Setting aside his formulaic plotting barely plausible but not entirely ridiculous tragedy occurs, human relationships suffer or don t in the aftermath , why does McEwan throw in government ministers who wear short pants and freeze to death or possibly magical religious fanatics or time traveling, nearly aborted sons although you gotta give him credit for spoofing himself in _Saturday_ for that misguided magical realism in _Child in Time_ McEwan is NOT a magical realist his realism is too sharp and creditable while his magic is too clumsy and inane So why disrupt wrenc...
