A cheating boyfriend is lured into a trap. More technically assured than the first collection, and with more bite. Above all else, McEwan is interesting.

To me it feels like incompletely complete 4. I enjoyed other stories in the book too, but the two mentioned above were ones that seemed to have lodged themselves in my brain.
Entre LAS Sabanas
Every other story ends weakly: This enhre story is erotic, sexual stuffs and has what-will-happens-in-the-end kind of feeling.
Also, even though it is highly sensual, the stories and scenes were very well written. This is the weirdest story about an ape who can interact with his keeper Sally Klee, make coffees, clean plates and also with his other humanly qualities, he can read. There is no common motif or theme in this collection of seven stories.
I’m thinking of the father in the title story and his incestuous sabsnas for his young daughter and his regularly gross sexual feelings for her similarly young friend.

Each of these stories seemed to be afterthoughts, or B-sides, if you will, but bad B-sides. Found myself deeply disturbed, and really, I am not easily so. Dec 31, Sam K G rated it really liked it Recommends it for: In an attempt to be more objective, I’d say this is not McEwan’s finest hour, though a couple of the stories are definitely worth reading.
