Winner of the Booker Prize!

Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumor, and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He's had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He's certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer's letter is about to prove. The Sense of an Ending is the story of one man coming to terms with the mutable past. Laced with trademark precision, dexterity and insight, it is the work of one of the world's most distinguished writers.

    " I don't think i'm particularly dense, but I don't get this book. Barnes is clearly an excellent writer, his prose was almost musical in places, but I can't buy into the characters. I couldn't see the attraction between Tony and Veronica, and as for Tony "not getting it," maybe if she'd ever had a conversation with him, he would have. I'm glad this was a quick book. "

    " I enjoyed this, although the story is not strong. "

    " I actually read this twice. After I finished it the second time (almost back-to-back), I upped the star value to 5. A book has to really capture me to get a 5. This is also the only book that beckoned me back for a re-read two weeks after finishing it. Excellent. "
