What is the Little Prince? A children’s story? A fantastic tale? A youth novel? A philosophical tale? A coded message? Poetic writing?
Atonement is a novel about guilt, lying and the dramatic consequences it can cause.
This novel is well written. Of a pleasant invoice, it is advisable of a logic based on returns on the past whenever that is necessary without so much to weigh down the text.
Very original: for the first and perhaps only time in a novel, the description of places, objects, people, is first rendered by smells.
