The Sense of An Ending by Julian Barnes.. You have to admire the elegance of this book. It’s slender unpretentiousness, dealing with morality and regret, however, hides many subtle thrills the attentive reader will enjoy decoding.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"A dexterously crafted narrative of unlooked-for consequences."

The Sunday Times (London)

"Barnes builds a powerful atmosphere of shame and silence. . . . As ever, Barnes excels at colouring everyday reality with his narrator’s unique subjectivity, without sacrificing any of its vivid precision. . . . Novel, fertile and memorable."

The Guardian
