Enduring Love

by Ian McEwan

Enduring Love Synopsis

I cannot remember the last time I read a novel so beautifully written or utterly compelling from the very first page . (Bill Bryson, Sunday Times ). One windy spring day in the Chilterns Joe Rose's calm, organised life is shattered by a ballooning accident. The afternoon, Rose reflects, could have ended in mere tragedy, but for his brief meeting with Jed Parry. Unknown to Rose, something passes between them - something that gives birth in Parry to an obsession so powerful that it will test to the limits Rose's beloved scientific rationalism, threaten the love of his wife Clarissa and drive him to the brink of murder and madness. Hypnotically readable . ( Sunday Telegraph ).
