Bought it in Salzburg because The Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy started to bore me. Luckily so, Saturday was a lot more interesting. Ever since reading (and seeing) Atonement McEwan has captured my attention. Saturday certainly lived up to expection. It's contemporary, but not annoyingly so and thoughtful, while still exciting qua plot. The guy just knows how to write a good novel. A fourth McEwan novel should not be a punishment; maybe Amsterdam or The Cement garden?
