Atonement - I read Atonement two years ago and it still weighs on my memory. It ripped my heart out to the degree that I've been afraid of reading any more McEwan for fear of losing my reason. While not my "favorite" book, it gets five stars for its effortless combination of the beautiful and the sublime. If it were an art piece, it would be Francisco Goya's The Third of May (1814).
