I am seriously stressing about this book because I have none! I'm finding it quite hard to get to grips with. Not what you're looking for? Report 5 years ago 2. What is it that you need notes about? For me I think the main points to remember are how McEwan uses foreshadowing in the opening chapter to imply a sudden change in Joe's life- don't have to book with me now but quotes are very easy to find even within the first couple of paragraphs, e.
Also,, for characterisation I tend to focus on Joe as obviously he is the most developed.
Sorry its quote vague but I hope it helps! Report 5 years ago 3. This is a brief essay I wrote on the first 8 chapters last year- its not great but should give some ideas One technique that McEwan uses effectively in the first eight chapters to tell the story is foreshadowing. The descriptive language that McEwan uses in chapters one and two reflect the personality of Joe, and help the reader to understand him better; something that would help them to connect with the story later in the book when Joe is in trouble.
The incident of the balloon accident is described from the point of view of Joe, with very matter of fact and straightforward language. I think that McEwan chooses to describe the incident in this way from the point of view of Joe so that the reader can get a better understanding of his very scientific and reasonable personality.
Joe is always looking for a plausible, technical reason behind everything, and tries to think of things with a rational outlook, which is reinforced by the sentence structure in this chapter of the book as well.

Detached from all emotion, they show only fact. This descriptive language is simply what he saw, and why it appeared that way, not how he felt about the appearance of the corpse. In chapter three, I think that one of the main narrative techniques used by McEwan is pace. McEwan uses this narrative technique to move along the story, but I also think that it highlights the significance of the day of the accident compared to the following weeks.
The viewpoint in the book is another technique used by McEwan to tell the story of Joe and Jed. I think that this is particularly important in chapters four and five, which are entirely told from the point of view of Joe.

I think that McEwan chooses to write these two chapters focused around Joe to show how caught up in his thoughts he is. Like mine yesterday. It helps to explain why Joe reacts to the whole situation with Jed in a very negative way and not just like Clarissa, when Joe decides to tell her about the phone call. The apartment helps to show the comforting life that Joe used to lead before the accident, as it is when they are in the apartment that Joe and Clarissa seem most open and comforting to each other.
Intertextuality in Ian McEwan's novels "Enduring Love", "Atonement" and "Sweet Tooth"
The very close relationship is also another place where Joe can find comfort, but would soon be tainted by Jed. I think that McEwan emphasises these sources of comfort, happiness and normality for Joe so that when Jed begins to invade and ruin them, it creates a more dramatic and menacing atmosphere in comparison.
