The list author says: "I read quite a bit and my own book collection could compete with that of your local library. While I love almost all the books I read, every once in a while there is a book that pulls me in so deep that I cant stop reading it. (I had to return the distant hours to the library with 100 pgs left and i went to Barnes and Noble that night and just sat there reading until they closed). These are the books that I highly recommend, for further reading al of these authors have written multiple books its enough to keep you busy for a long long time."
"I wrote what I think was a great paper on this book. McEwan creates an enticing character dealing with the fear of aging. Throughout the characters day he challanges thoughts of aging and dying parents, children becoming adults, and the loss of his own youth."
