Memories. In a clever novella, Julian Barnes delves into the notion of memory, and the difference in form between action and our constructed and amended memories. The Sense of an Ending is constrained and concise, and a reader is almost compelled to start re-reading once the last page is turned. There’s that “aha” sense that can propel a reader to take newly found insight and read again to see the book in new light. Readers who enjoy literary fiction and clever writing are those most likely to enjoy this short novel.
Rating: Four-star (Highly Recommended)
