Atonement

Posted by lori . 3 Comments

What happens when you’re young and you do something but don’t fully understand the far-reaching ramifications.  That and how we atone for our sins is what drives the story in Atonement by Ian McEwan.  If you love beautiful language and unforgettable characters, this is a must-read.

The book gives you beautiful words, the movie gives you beautiful images.  Atonement was nominated for seven Academy Awards (including Best Picture) in 2007.  Atonement won an Academy Award for Best Original Score.
