Críticas:

Until the exciting day when McEwan is awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, his numerous and ardent fans enjoy the regular appearance of his highly intelligent and compellingly provocative novels. McEwan can be counted on to make the implausible plausible and the outrageous reasonable, and his talent in that regard is put to its consummate test in his latest novel ... [An]ingenious tour de force ... As soon as words gets out, any new novel by this best-selling, Booker Prize winning novelist causes a reader frenzy.
Booklist, Starred Review
"Short [and] smart ...The murder plot structures the novel as a crime caper, McEwan-style that is, laced with linguistic legerdemain, cultural references, and insights into human ingenuity and pettiness. Packed with humor and tinged with suspense, this gem resembles a sonnet the narrator recalls hearing his father recite: brief, dense, bitter, suggestive of unrequited and unmanageable longing, surprising, and surprisingly affecting.
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"

Nutshell is an orb, a Venetian glass paperweight of a book ... It is a consciously late, deliberately elegiac masterpiece, a calling together of everything McEwan has learned and knows about his art.
The Guardian
In Nutshell, McEwan is a pentathlete at the top of his game, doing several very different things equally well. Current literary culture rarely awards gold medals for comedy, but this is one performance agile, muscular, swift you should not miss.
Sunday Times(London)
A creative gamble that pays off brilliantly. Witty and gently tragic, this short, bewitching novel is an ode to humanity s beauty, selfishness and inextinguishable longing.
Mail on Sunday
There is far more going on in this fiercely intelligent novel than first meets the eye. At once playful and deadly serious, delightful and frustrating, it is one of McEwan's hardest to categorize works, and all the more interesting for it.
The Times (London)
McEwan has thrown in Gone Girl intrigue with The Girl on the Train suspense and given us his take on how toxic a marriage can get when spliced with a Shakespearean cast. Who knew McEwan could mix high and low literary genres to create such a bizarrely readable mash-up?
The Independent

From the Hardcover edition."

With Nutshell, Ian McEwan has performed an incongruous magic trick ... A smart, funny and utterly captivating novel ... A small tour de force that showcases all of Mr. McEwan s narrative gifts of precision, authority and control, plus a new, Tom Stoppard-like delight in the sly gymnastics that words can perform.
Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
Compact, captivating ... The writing is lean and muscular, often relentlessly gorgeous ... McEwan is one of the most accomplished craftsmen of plot and prose.
Siddhartha Mukherjee, The New York Times Book Review
Brilliant . . . Surprisingly suspenseful, dazzlingly clever and gravely profound.
Ron Charles, Washington Post
McEwan pulls it off. I bought the premise and never looked back . . . The most talked-about novel of the season.
Mary Roach, O, The Oprah Magazine
"As an example of point of view, you can look no farther than these gorgeous pages, which not only prove that brevity is the soul of wit but also offer the reader a voice both distinctive and engaging ... The reader [will be]speeding through every page, each one rife with wordplay, social commentary, hilarity, and suspense ...Hats off to Ian McEwan."

Reseña del editor:

New from the bestselling author of Atonement and The Children Act

Trudy has betrayed her husband, John. She's still in the marital home—a dilapidated, priceless London townhouse—but John's not there. Instead, she's with his brother, the profoundly banal Claude, and the two of them have a plan. But there is a witness to their plot: the inquisitive, nine-month-old resident of Trudy's womb.

Told from a perspective unlike any other, Nutshell is a classic tale of murder and deceit from one of the world’s master storytellers.

Descripción Softcover. Condición: New. From the bestselling author of Atonement,Nutshell is a classic story of murder and deceit, told by a narrator with a perspective and voice unlike any in recent literature. A bravura performance, it is the finest recent work from a true master. To be bound in a nutshell, see the world in two inches of ivory, in a grain of sand. Why not, when all of literature, all of art, of human endeavour is just a speck in the universe of possible things.From the Hardcover edition. Nº de ref. del artículo: 5501256
