Accurate picture of cultural forces clashing in the 21st century where the information age brings about changes that those who are for accelerating into the technological era embrace while those who yearn for old days where things were seen as rosy, they reject the movement of this new era. But colorful lenses deceive as the old farm days were filled with sickness without good medical care, harsh environmental forces coming into play and people being left to the mercy of storm, rain and drought. Children were raised as cattles since the goal of kids were simply for survival and cheap labor was always good as teenagers consumned little and could easily work much without all the hassle of union rights and demands. White coat Gods are disassembled and seen as mere mortals who cannot solve a wide variety of diseases with consumers bringing in law suits from varios angles. Their high power prestige struck mercilessly from the business arena with HMO providers etc, and the playing field gets leveled through "efficiency" Politicians, lawyers, psycholigist as well as spiritual masters coming in to say their two cents worth, yet no one is quite in agreement with each other - having learned from experiences that form, shape thoughts and essentially mould their very essence.
OH MY GOD, i had no idea what was going to happen!! im still kind of sad at the ending but i guess thats what needed to be. i hope that it isnt the end for Sophie and friends but all good things must come to and end.. i really cant wait to see what else Rachel Hawkins creates!
McEwan is an excellent writer...one of the best I've ever read. The question is if atonement is possible in a world where the cost of clarity is the passing of time and love often fails to meet its mark. I saw hints of this in the movie 'Babel', with McEwan's novel being much more satisfying (though not comforting).
