The Rory Gilmore Book Club: 20 Of The Gilmore Girls Character’s Most Beloved Books
Atonement by Ian McEwan
If it’s depressing, old, and has a movie adaptation starring Keira Knightly, you can assume it’s a Rory Gilmore favorite. On season four’s “The Hobbit, the Sofa, and Digger Stiles,” Rory reads Ian McEwan‘s romantic war tragedy Atonement to pre-game her first college class. In classic Rory fashion, she arrives early enough to get some light reading done, and classmate Marty happens to fall in love with her in the process. When jealous little sh*t Briony sees her older sister hooking up with handsome Robbie, a simple lie ruins everyone’s lives forever.
