I DNF'd this. It was my second McEwan. I tried another one after this and came to the conclusion that his writing just isn't for me. So, the film is much better?

Yep. The film was really good actually. Much better. Have you tried The Comfort of Strangers? That was a really scary read for me - in a good way. Really loved it.

Is this the one with the couple on holiday where everything goes wrong?

That's the one... is it one of the ones you tried?

Yes, it is. The other one was Atonement. I'm afraid McEwan really is not for me.

In what way was Comfort of Strangers a good scary read for you?

Sounds like McEwan isn't for you then... I love being totally freaked out when I read - I like being scared and I thought it kept a level of suspense up throughout... You knew something awful was going to happen to the couple but you didn't know what or when. Oh well!
