Amsterdam (1998) by Ian McEwan & the Booker Winner with Such Twisted Beauty

Amsterdam by Ian McEwan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Amsterdam (1998) by Ian McEwan rightfully won the Booker Prize and the novel, being only 178 pages long, was claimed by the Sunday Telegraph as “a psychologically brilliant study of heartlessness.” And that is exactly what a reader will get: a superbly written piece of brutal heartlessness and blatant betrayals on all sides, but Ian does it so well it feels like the reader is getting slapped in the face with silk.
