A book to think!!!The story's facade is simple, refined almost to monotony and dependent on the revelation of a secret towards the ending. But what is hidden between the lines is far more chaotic—and likely to leave the reader anxious for days after finishing the book. I loved that the book made me really think about regret, and repentance. It also made me think about the idea that we are always dishonest narrators of our own lives. And the book was very disturbing that it made me think about how easy it is to think you are one kind of person, when you are actually not and how universal human frailty is.

Memory De-glorifiedThe book is a worthy winner. It deconstructs the romanticism built around the concepts of 'memory' and 'nostalgia'. It is a book divided into two parts. The first part is a memory told by the protagonist. The second part is the anti-thesis. The memory receives a setback. And it is interestingly narrated. The end is poignant.

Nice bookThis book is a delight to read if you are into reading non narrative type of fiction. This is less of a novel and more of a memoir. The book is more heavy on analysis, observation and opinion than on a narrative for a fiction.

Splendid book for a mature mindIt was the first time I read a book by Julian Barnes and what a wonderful reading it was. The first person narration, the British humor and the narration is the work of a master. Although its only 150 pages but the emotions conveyed are far reaching. It is the book which leaves you thinking. Something which guarantees re-reads. A book for the ones who thoroughly enjoy stepping in the shoes of the character as he navigates through episodes of his life. A stark statement on the way we make peace with our lives by taking perceptions and believing them to be true.

Totally worth !t.

Profoundly Impressive -- Thought provokingI just finished "The Sense of an Ending" and was left stunned. There are books that leave the reader thinking about it for weeks, this is one of those. The mystery unfolds slowly, and we as readers are given the same facts as protagonist is. Everything is filtered through Tony's fractured memories. This is a book that will stay with me a long time.

Story is weak, but fantastic way of telling itThe story is not so great. But, the way it is told is brilliant. It is full of surprises and a little suspense, but at the end, the story does not appear worth of remembering. It finely narrates some events that started some half a century ago and enter in the present. The journey of a man from the childhood in the fifties/sixties to getting aged in the present world has been well-depicted (Although the story has a jump in time for about 30/40 years).

He is good !Well... to begin with,I am still trying to figure out the sense of an ending in " The Sense of an Ending " with its dual twists in the end. The ending left me with a sense of wondrous bewilderment... and open to plenty of interpretations,which makes the entire book worthy of a re-read later and very open to analysis. The lucidity in its style is marvellous. Barnes, has an extremely engaging plot build-up here which makes us hold onto every word as we traverse through the book.

Resentment, Regret and Realm in its finest senseI am thrilled to bits , i read the book. this on the whole is a vivid representation of what tony thought life was and how ironically it unfolded to leave him with more questions about his actions and the decisions he made. the choices man makes often comes back to either haunt him or present him in a a character he sketched ages back.
