Sweet Tooth

Sweet Tooth: A Novel looks like it is right up my alley! The setting the time period the characters! I love it. I think this will be a great to read during the chilly fall nights that are upon us.  This month Sutton was the suggested book but I completely could not get into it.  It was boring and slow.  I decided to choose another book and Sweet Tooth seems to be my pick! I am crossing my fingers it is as good as it seems because I am excited to read it.

Description: Cambridge student Serena Frome’s beauty and intelligence make her the ideal recruit for MI5. The year is 1972. The Cold War is far from over. England’s legendary intelligence agency is determined to manipulate the cultural conversation by funding writers whose politics align with those of the government. The operation is code named “Sweet Tooth.”  Serena, a compulsive reader of novels, is the perfect candidate to infiltrate the literary circle of a promising young writer named Tom Haley. At first, she loves his stories. Then she begins to love the man. How long can she conceal her undercover life? To answer that question, Serena must abandon the first rule of espionage: trust no one.
Once again, Ian McEwan’s mastery dazzles us in this superbly deft and witty story of betrayal and intrigue, love and the invented self.
