  • "Ian McEwan's sardonic satire Solar, read by Roger Allen, lends itself especially well to listening, since we spend our time in the head of its loathsome antihero Michael Beard, privy to all his ignoble thoughts and criminal actions as he approaches a Hogarthian nemesis."

  • "Ian McEwan's pure, direct prose always lends itself well to audio, and he was in splendid comic vein in Solar"
