I found this book hard to get into the begin with just because it's such a complicated subject. I haven't read an Ian McEwan novel and liked it for a while. Maybe I just didn't give them enough attention. I did find with this one though that, on perseverance and given the right amount of attention, this book is rich in terms of subject and brilliantly written in many ways. I love the central questions about what makes someone human. I love how it goes into so many areas such as what makes a person, what is personality, does a machine with a complex and individual personality deserve rights, how far does human acceptance go, why do humans think they are the eternal top of the evolutionary chain and therefore in charge of everything, what does technology and it's advancement mean for the future (is it good or bad)? . . . I could go on. On a more basic level the story is engaging, the characters are complex and well drawn. I loved it. Couldn't put it down.
