I decided to start the 11k challenge for 2011 with this:

It was a Christmas present from my mom.  One that I had asked for.

The back of the book:

"Ian McEwan's symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness combines all the satisfaction of a superb narrative with the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose.

On a summer day in 1935, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses the flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant.  But Briony's incomplete grasp of adult motives and her precocious imagination bring about a crime that will change all their lives, a crime whose repercussions Atonement follows through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century"

The bibliography:

McWean, Ian.  Atonement.  New York: Anchor Books, 2003.

You can find it here or at your local library (support the libraries!)

Total pages for this book:  351

Total pages for the year: 351
Remaining pages to read: 10,649
