The Cement Garden - Ian McEwan Mmmh, this book was too tough for me when I've read it.

The Cement Garden has given a lot of disturbing visions to me and even if this is probably the goal of Ian McEwan, I don't like to remember this book.

Having no brothers or sisters I've been stunned by the nasty and sordid stories which happen behind the curtains of this detached house with a cement garden. Squalor and decadence have never found a better narrator than McEwan.
