Description du produit

Revue de presse

"Never less than wholly entertaining." —The Wall Street Journal

"Deft, taut fiction. . . . Many English writers have been compared to Evelyn Waugh, often wrongly, but this book can stand with the master's best." —Time

"So exhaustively suspenseful that it should be devoured at one sitting. . . . McEwan fuses a spy-novel plot with themes as venerable as the myth of Adam and Eve." —Newsweek

"Has the spooky, crooked-angled, danger-around-every-corner feeling of a Carol Reid film. It reminded me often of The Third Man and that is no mean feat." —Jonathan Carroll, The Washington Post Book World

"Powerful and disturbing . . . a tour de force." —The New York Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

A member of a British-American surveillance team in Cold War Berlin finds himself in too deep in this masterful work from the author of Atonement. Twenty-five-year-old Leonard Marnham’s intelligence work—tunneling under a Russian communications center to tap the phone lines to Moscow—offers him a welcome opportunity to begin shedding his own unwanted innocence, even if he is only a bit player in a grim international comedy of errors. His relationship with Maria Eckdorf, an enigmatic and beautiful West Berliner, likewise promises to loosen the bonds of his ordinary life. But the promise turns to horror in the course of one terrible evening—a night when Marnham learns just how much of his innocence he's willing to shed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Underappreciated 9 juillet 2015
Par K.N.R. - Publié sur

The best McEwan yet! It is complex in the form of simplicity and gets the reader to enter a world imaginative enough to be real. The characters are formidable and fashioned to a Tee. Leonard is the innocent named, but also the innocent are all the citizens of Wet Berlin; all are changed through the tears and the past is forgotten and remembered. Mystery, romance, everything seems to coagulate in this novel of spies and naivety. Soon lost, thought, the young grow old and become accustomed to their new selves. Leonard grows up with Maria, and grows to understand the affections of Glass and the need to protect what 'he' is. A wonderful story of regret, though not as intense it still delivers in a different way, and of love lost.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting look at postwar occupation 26 mars 2014
Par P. W. Neal - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
How timely to have read this as the Russian Bear is spreading fear again. This story revives the trauma of the immediate post-war hardships and uncertainties faced in Germany and Europe. McEwan touches lightly on the British spy scandal that had a devastating long term negative impact on Anglo-American relations.
His descriptions of American plenty and arrogance are a little over-drawn. But, then I may be sensitive to the slights. After all, we did put a lot of effort into the winning of WW2 .
The story is compelling, the details of the dismembering of the corpse, are chilling.
There did not seem to be an intense love developed between the hero and heroine, not one that elicited the intensity of the explanatory letter.
Overalll this is a good read, it will satisfy many who have little remembrance of the early 50's postwar Germany.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Personal Burden of the Cold War 9 novembre 2015
Par SF - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This sometimes upsetting, often moving novel recreates the lives that must have been led by those who struggled to lead normal lives in post-war Berlin, even before the advent of the Wall. The pain that they felt -- and caused -- is very real in this novel. It is unsatisfying at times, but in a way that is undoubtedly intended. It is a marvelous evocation of that troubled city in theta time, and a human story of the pain and unhappiness felt by two people whose paths crossed at a unique time. A good read and a great period piece.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Genuine Thriller From Ian McEwan 14 février 2017
Par D. BookHugger - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the tenth Ian McEwan novel I have read. For me, he is one of the best at getting inside the minds of his characters, and bringing out the nuances in human relationships.

We are introduced to Leonard as a conscientious technician working in a spy tunnel in Cold War Berlin. Inexperienced with women, he begins a relationship with the congenial Maria, and they fall in love. But Maria is recovering from an abusive marriage. The ex-husband won't leave them alone and tragedy ensues.

The dismemberment scene was hard to read (it's chapter 18 if you want to skip it). But I don't think it was entirely gratuitous, for during this terrible night we see the strands of Leonard and Maria's love begin to unravel. From then on, this is one phenomenal page-turner!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 I quite enjoyed The Innocent 31 décembre 2014
Par Ruth B. - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I quite enjoyed The Innocent, and along with a couple of other reviewers I have to agree there are a couple of chapters where I almost had to read with one eye closed. They were extremely graphic and gut turning.

While the story was spy related, I would argue it was far more a love story, recounting the growing relationship of the typically unworldly and conservative Brit Leonard meeting the liberated German Maria in the mid 1950s. The spy aspect was almost beneath the surface, and to be honest I kept asking myself "when is the spy thing going to start?" That said, subtle is probably what spying is all about, and perhaps that was conveyed in the writing.

The plot was believable, which considering it was based on a true story would be expected - I only realised this when I read the Authors notes at the end. The detail regarding the tunnel, tapping, and telecommunications I tended to skip over once I understood what Leonard was doing in Berlin, but for those interested they will enjoy.
