Journal Entry 1 by wingbronwynawing from Fitzroy, Victoria Australia on Saturday, July 17, 2010
I usually love Ian McEwan novels and was really looking forward to his latest novel. The complexities and moral dilemmas of other novels are here in Solar, but apart from Michael Beard, the main character, being a thoroughly obnoxious person, this read does not leave you pondering or thinking through the positions posed like his previous works. Worth a read but not is best. Releasing at tomorrows meetup.

Pounced on this one straight away! I am a fan of McEwan's novels - and despite bronwyna's ambivalence will give this one a go! More later when it works its way up the mighty Mt To-be-read!

Nope! With bronwyna on this one - didn't enjoy this one - and actually didn't finish it! Hopefully a new reader will enjoy this more than we did!

Journal Entry 7 by KKslibrary at Melbourne CBD, Victoria Australia on Sunday, June 30, 2019
I agree with my fellow Bookcrosser ‘s this is not one of McEwan’s best, but interesting and intriguing none the less. The main character, Michael Beard, although a Nobel Prize winner in physics, is quite an unlikeable and obnoxious person. He is trading on his Nobel prize win as a guest speaker, but his 5th marriage is on the rocks, but this time she is having the affair, and he is struggling to deal with it, because he still loves her.
