Nutshell by Ian McEwan. Trudy and Claude plot her husband’s murder, but someone’s plotting against them; her unborn baby in the womb. Hilarious. A short sharp whipcrack of a book, brilliant black comedy. The baby’s not even the best character, Trudy and Claude are two great grotesques. Loved it. “So here I am, upside down in a woman.” .

🇬🇧 NUTSHELL by Ian McEwan
The narrator and his point of view is very unusual, it’s an unborn child.
The Shakespearean triangle: wife (Trudy/Gertrude) , husband, brother in law- lover(Claude/Claudius) is presented in a modern key with its bitter reflection on a human race without values and ethics until the epilogue.
The author destroys the myth of the comfort zone in a mother’s womb because, even if the unborn child has a vital relationship with his mother, he feels the psychological and emotional distance between them.
“However close you get to others, you can never get inside them, even when you’re inside them”
