    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleThis is by Julian Barnes so we know it will focus on memory and its tricks Some examples “but what you end up remembering isn’t always the same as what you witnessed” And “I need to return briefly to a few incidents that have grown into anecdotes to some approximate memories which time has deformed into certainty” And “again I must stress that this is my reading now of what happened then Or rather my memory now of my reading then of what was happening at the time” The book is a Booker Prize winner so we expect and we get great writing “In those days we imagined ourselves as being kept in some kind of holding pen waiting to be released into our lives” There’s not a lot of point in adding an extensive review to book with 12000 already on GR although it’s interesting to note that its rating 37 is a bit on the low side Barnes seems

Grrr If only these people Barnes’ characters would sit down and discuss amongst themselves then there will be no problem Then Tony Webster will not have to spend all his life trying to grapple the memories he thought to be contained in his whole pathetic life You see Tony Webster is a double sided man he seems to be this gentle go with the flow nice man who respects his girlfriend not to have real sex until they are ready However when his girlfriend dumps him for Tony Webster’s friend he writes the bitterest letter that I’ve read coming from a dumped lover The kind of letter that would put to shame even the

    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleDefinitely has a plot but a pathetic one Thin characters cliched ideas I feel annoyed by having read this book OK there was one good quote “Sometimes I think the purpose of life is to reconcile us to its eventual loss by wearing us down by proving however long it takes that life isn't all it's cracked up to be” But ultimately the plot is a gimmick I don't understand how this won the Booker Prize What the heck did Tony ever do to anyone except send a crappy letter to an ex girlfriend who was now going out with one of his best friends? Who HASN'T done that?And why the money from The Mother? Doesn't make any sense Nor does younger Adrian's fear of Tony when he mentions being friends with Mary And why the heck didn't The Mother leave her money to her son who

    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleThis is an exploration of memory exquisitely written as the thoughts of an old man looking back on his life good enough to merit 5 despite the somewhat contrived ending ironic given the titleImageryIt opens with six watery images an unexpected word in several of them makes them vivid each of which form part of the story“I remember in no particular order a shiny inner wrist steam rising from a wet sink as a frying pan is laughingly tossed into it gouts of sperm circling a plugh

    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleSuch was the big fat craptastic big reveal groanworthy lurid pulpy Victorian melodramatic you got to be kidding ending with no sense that the two stars this novel was hanging on to by its fingernails up to page 130 slipped out of its grasp and it ended up with the ignominious one star but since that puts it in the same company as many much loved novels it may well be worn as a Badge Of Honour – I envisage one of those peelable stickers on all future editions A P BRYANT ONE STAR NOVEL and Julian Barnes can swank around with Zadie

    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleSome of my closest GR friends may have noticed that I’ve been less active around here lately Unfortunately there’s a reason for that It’s nothing dire but it’s still sad for me to have to say As it turns out I’m going to have to hang up my spurs albeit for reasons that have nothing to do with my friends here and not even much to do with me It has to do with my niece’s husband who until recently had been a web application developer at Goodreads The past perfect tense applies because while it’s all well and good to speculate on your own machine and on your own time about what a

    The Sense of an Ending eBook ↠ Sense of an eBook sense book, ending book, The Sense pdf, of an book, Sense of an mobile, The Sense of an Ending KindleI think my years as a philosophy student were actually detrimental to my enjoyment of this short novel about life and memory The stuff that has left other people reeling in amazement reminded me of little than just another essay on the mind and the way we think the way we interpret events and the way our memories can let us down Mr Barnes is clearly a clever man and his writing is a touch complex but always charming However is this really that original any?I don't think so I can point you towards many even young adult books with equally unreliable narrators that are much engaging gripping and altogether r
