When reading the first 50 pages or so, one is impressed by the author's mastery of English and his technical knowledge of neurosurgery. However, continued reading becomes tedious because the plot is very slow to develop. Then, when action finally takes place, it is not particularly believable.

Overall, I would rate "Atonement" and "The Comfort of Strangers" as better novels by this author.
