really liked it

Memories are so fragile and easily susceptible to be embellished, rearranged, or ignored entirely. Protagonist Tony Webster comes to realize this by the end of this slow-burn novel. Until he does, we are left to contend with an unreliable narrator, which gives the book a bit more suspense than it probably deserves. The Sense of an Ending is a quick read, and can probably be finished in one sitting, but make time to savor the beautiful language and ruminations on history, memory, and the mind.

Alison Slow burn! I said the same thing! Did you read the Vanity Fair article Michael Lewis wrote about Obama? Apparently Barry was reading this at the time.
