    An inventive and engaging novel

    Ian McEwan's "Nutshell" is an inventive and interesting novel. Narrated by a fetus, it's the story of John and Trudy, a separated couple expecting their first child, and Claude, John's younger brother, with whom Trudy is now having an affair. Trudy and Claude concoct a scheme to murder John, and the fetus, almost ready to be born, is "witness" to their scheming. The concept of this novel is very original, and while the premise is quite outrageous the book is well-written and engaging.

    What not to expect when you're expecting

    A masterpiece of literary imagination -- clever, taut, funny -- and beautifully written, as we have come to expect from the versatile Ian McEwan.

    Perfection. Ian McEwan has done it again. Just let go and enjoy this book. While reading rejoice in the unique voice, just the right amount of detail - really fun, brilliant, and enjoyable ride.
