The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan (CBR-IV #26)

Cannonball Read IV: Book #26/52
Published: 1978
Pages: 160
Genre: Fiction

This was a weird book. Very weird. It follows three siblings after the death of both of their parents in a short time span. They actually put their dead mother in a trunk in the basement and fill it with concrete. I told you it was weird. They figure they can all stay together if no one knows their mother is dead.

However, it was well-written and gave a pretty clear picture of this family, especially considering how short it was. If you're not easily disturbed (and like weird), it's worth a quick read.
