sevenstories’ CBR-III Review #40: The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

The Sense of an Ending is the first novel from the Man Booker shortlist that I’ve read and I was drawn to it primarily because of its beautiful cover, so it definitely wins points for having the best cover design on the shortlist. Barnes is the bookies favourite to win and when the shortlist was announced the judging panel claimed it as Barnes’ best work, which considering he has already been shortlisted several times does seem to bode well for his chances. I will get back to you once I’ve read the others…

All in all, an excellent novel which manages to really  get inside your head.
