Saturday, February 15, 2003. Henry Perowne is a contented man - a successful neurosurgeon, the devoted husband of Rosalind and proud father of two grown-up children. Unusually, he wakes before dawn, drawn to the window of his bedroom and filled with a growing unease. What troubles him as he looks out at the night sky is the state of the world - the impending war against Iraq, a gathering pessimism since 9/11, and a fear that his city and his happy family life are under threat.

James Wilby is a great choice for this novel
Ian Mcewan's intricately detailed novel really comes to life with this reading. I enjoyed reading 'Saturday' but having listened to it on audible, I have found a greater enjoyment! By the end of it, you really feel as though you know Henry like a friend.
