 Atonement_%28novel%29I have read most of Ian McEwan’s work and I find Atonement his most powerful by far. I read it ages ago, but I have recently seen the movie based on it, directed by Joe Wright and featuring actress Kiera Knightley. The movie has been described as ‘poetry on film’ but I find the best feature to be its being true to the novel it is based on.

For those of you who want to see the movie, you can watch it online at: http://www.surfthechannel.com/episode/61497/54557.html However, prepare for the challenge of owning up and atoning for your own buried sins from long ago. This book/movie has the power to once again show you the difference between right and wrong and to compel you to right your wrongs.
