On Chesil Beach - Ian McEwan

She wanted to be in love and be herself. But to be herself, she had to say no all the time. And then she was no longer herself.
(Pg 146, GBR Hardback 2007 ed.)

This is how the entire course of a life can be changed - by doing nothing.
(Pg 166)

On Chesil Beach extract from The New Yorker

Did I like it? Well, loved it. Recommended. A bonus: it is a short book.

The extract gave a sense of the book. Interpretations from one's perception may cause to sway away from intended message.
