's review

really liked it

I was poorly today so picked a novel off the shelf and curled up on the sofa with a Lemsip. Julian Barnes's "The Sense of an Ending" probably wasn't the lightest choice I could have made, but the writing, particularly in the earlier sections was beautiful to read. Like many things that win prizes, books or films, I'm curiously surprised that it has been so lavishly praised. Yep, gorgeous writing with a rhythmic lilt, but for such a short novel, the story did seem to drag as I headed towards the finale.
