The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

Four Stars

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes is an unfolding of perception through the main character over a span of decades. It’s one of the books that makes the reader wonder what in life has been misconstrued as fact within a particular person’s fiction. I caution readers about the first part since it contains self-involved, explicit inferences. Otherwise, I found it to be quite readable and an intriguing analysis of human perception.
