This book is a brilliant, emotionally wrenching new novel from the author of Atonement and Amsterdam. Fiona Maye, a leading High Court judge, renowned for her fierce intelligence and sensitivity is called on to try an urgent case. For religious reasons, a seventeen-year-old boy is refusing the medical treatment that could save his life. Time is running out. She visits the boy in hospital - an encounter which stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. But it is Fiona who must ultimately decide whether he lives or dies and her judgement will have momentous consequences for them both.

  1. Intressant mänsklig historia
    Elisabeth Ivarsson, 12 oktober 2015

    Ytterst intressant historia med trovärdiga personer och deras reaktioner i de olika situationerna.Intressanta fall/juridiska spörsmål. Underbart språk, som är lättförståeligt för en som började läsa engelska på 50-talet, men som inte förstår en del av dagens språk i tidningar och artiklar, med nya ord och uttryck.

  2. Fantastisk
    Lena Stockman, 8 september 2015

    De moraliska ställningstagande som en familjerättsdomare råkar ut för är stringent och utmanande formulerat i The Children Act. När du väl har börjat läsa kan du inte släppa den. Du kommer in under skinnet på domaren och får ta del av hennes moraliska dilemman både i rättssalen och hemma.

"Compulsively readable... McEwan's prose keeps its cutting edge and his books are the ones the reading public still crave... A masterly balance between research and imagination... One feels an immediate pleasure in returning to prose of uncommon clarity, unshowiness and control" * The Times * "Classic McEwan... It's a pleasure from start to finish, one not to be interrupted" * Guardian * "A powerful, humane novel" * Evening Standard * "One of the finest writers alive" * Sunday Times * "McEwan writes as beautifully and elegantly as ever, his prose quintessentially English in its restraint, one meticulously chosen word hinting at depths of emotion" * Washington Post *
