FICTION | TOP 40 BOOK CLUB READS 12 13 SweeT TOOTh ian mcewan Sweet Tooth is a spy novel set in early 70s Britain, but Silent Witness and James Bond it is not! McEwan’s spy, Serena Frome, a Cambridge graduate, is groomed for work at MI5 – not because of her Mathematics major, but because of her voracious appetite for English literature. Par t social commentary on pre-Thatcher Britain and part homage to the espionage genre, Sweet Tooth is about reading and writing, love, trust and betrayal. Critics are divided about the greatness of this novel, but if you are interested in espionage and the Cold War, McEwan’s suspenseful plot will keep you guessing until the very last page.
