    Default has anyone read Atonement?

    I'm trying and I just can't get into it. I have not seen the movie, but do know some about the story line. Maybe its because of the serious nature of the book, but its not grabbing me at all.
    There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale

    I haven't read this one or watched the movie. It seems as though there were some people here who did read it. Maybe try looking at some of the old pages of the "What are you reading now" thread.

    I just finished reading it!! I heard that it was such a good book!! I had a really hard time getting into it, but kept reading it expecting that it was going to get better!! It got better, but for me it was never really better than ok!! The first part it felt like they just kept going on and on, then they rushed through the second half! Just my opinions!

    I ended up giving up on it. I'll try it again when I'm more in the mood for that type of story. Its good to know that someone else found it hard to get into.
