The Sense of An Ending
Reviewed by- linda (2011/12/16, 06:42 PM)
This is a book for those who like to ponder and toss about philosophical concepts on the meaning of life, love and death. The story is small in scope, only 167 pages, but packs a lot of punch. I personally think it reads like the memoir of someone reflecting back on his or her life and memories. The story unfolds slowly and is intentionally ambiguous at times as Barnes explores choices we make, different levels of responsibility and the effects of time on one’s memory. He also leaves some questions unanswered - not necessarily a book for everyone, but rather for those who like to reminisce about the past and explore the deeper meaning of things. Recommend for those who enjoy a more literary read. Winner of the Man Booker prize.Back.
