From the "marvelously gifted" and award-winning author of Atonement and Saturday. It is July 1962. Florence is a talented musician who dreams of a career on the concert stage and of the perfect life she will create with Edward, an earnest young history student at University College of London, who unexpectedly wooed and won her heart. Newly married that morning, both virgins, Edward and Florence arrive at a hotel on the Dorset coast. At dinner in their rooms they struggle to suppress their worries about the wedding night to come. Edward, eager for rapture, frets over Florence's response to his advances and nurses a private fear of failure, while Florence's anxieties run deeper: she is overcome by sheer disgust at the idea of physical contact, but dreads disappointing her husband when they finally lie down together in the honeymoon suite. Ian McEwan has caught with understanding and compassion the innocence of Edward and Florence at a time when marriage was presumed to be the outward sign of maturity and independence.… (mais)

1962, two virgins on their wedding night in a hotel on the coast of England. Flashes back and forth between their disastrous first night, and their respective childhoods and history together. Be prepared for a depressing ending. Compelling; I, er, finished quickly. ( )

Well written but depressing. I really don't like depressing books. A nice reminder about how important it is to communicate honestly with your partner. ( )

A surprisingly effective narrative structure -- the story of two characters as played out and recalled on their wedding night in 1962. ( )

I’d not read a McEwan for ages and ages, but used to be a big fan. These notes may be a little harsh, and, if so, that’s probably due, as it is so often, to disappointed expectations.

On Chesil Beach reads a bit like “Essence of McEwan”. As if he's just dispatched with plot and is just relying on his forensic dissection of human interactions — the disparity between what people say, what they mean to say, and how what they say is heard. The plot, mostly just the mundanities that happened to align to make the moment of crisis quite so critical, is as barebones as is possible to give some foundation for the misunderstandings, the things unsaid, and the things badly said. I preferred it when McEwan's toolbag was utilised in service of a plot, not the other way round.

It may be that such a pared down approach could have worked, but the situation seemed pretty contrived (sure, such things must have happened, but vastly more people going through them managed to work it out one way or another). The temporal setting, on the edge of a new age of sexual openness in the early 60s, is certainly fascinating and fertile ground for examining human relationships, but I don’t feel that McEwan has managed to produce anything of any particular relevance here.

On Chesil Beach is brief and carefully plotted, the writing is measured, the tone of voice is forgiving and nostalgic. In other words, it is a fine example of emotion recollected in tranquillity. Even so, I couldn't help regretting the fun McEwan might have had with these sad fumbling innocents when he was younger, less mellow, and a great deal less forbearing.

After two big, ambitious novels — “Atonement” and “Saturday” — Ian McEwan has inexplicably produced a small, sullen, unsatisfying story that possesses none of those earlier books’ emotional wisdom, narrative scope or lovely specificity of detail.
 
Sans fard, Ian McEwan décrit cette jeunesse encore prisonnière de ses convenances, méconnaissant tout des relations sexuelles et de la vie de couple, mariés seulement après quelques flirts pudiques. Cette première nuit d'intimité détermine leur vie entière, leur engagement alors définitif.

They were young, uneducated, and both virgins on this, their wedding night, and they lived in a time when conversation about sexual difficulties was plainly impossible. But it is never easy.

This was still the era - it would end later in that famous decade - when to be young was a social encumbrance, a mark of irrelevance, a faintly embarrassing condition for which marriage was the beginning of a cure.
There was no one she could have talked to. Ruth, her sister, was too young, and her mother, perfectly wonderful in her way, was too intellectual, too brittle, an old-fashioned bluestocking. Whenever she confronted an intimate problem, she tended to adopt the public manner of the lecture hall, and use longer and longer words, and make references to books she thought everyone should have read.
Britain, England, was a minor power - saying this gave a certain blasphemous pleasure. Downstairs, of course, they took a different view. Anyone over forty would have fought, or suffered, in the war and known death on an unusual scale, and would not have been able to believe that a drift into irrelevance was the reward for all the sacrifice.
The term dissolved intimacy, it coolly measured his mother by a public standard that everyone could understand.
It pained him tremendously that their wedding night was not simple, when their love was so obvious.
