Sinopsis: It was 1955 and the corpse of post-war Berlin was crawling with spies. A British Post Office technician began his descent into ever deeper echelons of electronic surveillance beneath the surface of Berlin. The author also wrote "The Child in Time".
"To call The Innocent a spy novel would be like calling Lord of the Flies a boy's adventure yarn...it ensure McEwan's major status" ( Sunday Times)
"The sheer cleverness of the book is dazzling, and only fully to be appreciated as you turn the last page: but then cleverness is a real virtue here, the best guide possible to the questionable territory between innocence and whatever comes after" ( London Review of Books)
"It's the most tightly plotted of Ian McEwan's novels, and to argue properly for its excellence would involve showing how the political and emotional themes are inseparable from its narrative ingenuity, the patterns of revelation and about-turn which mark its final pages" (Jonathan Coe Guardian)
"Generous in scale, simple in its hideous impact...Ironically, he has celebrated the obsequies of the East-West spy thriller by writing one of the subtlest" ( Mail on Sunday)
"Deft, taut fiction... Many English writers have been compared to Evelyn Waugh, often wrongly, but this book can stand with the master's best" ( The Times)
