    The Sense of an Ending by Barnes, Julian (2012) Paperback


    History is that certainty produced at the point where the imperfections of memory meet the inadequacies of documentation. Tony Webster, in his late 60s and retired is finally faced with the reassessment of his past. Starting in school, where he and his two friends first encountered Adrian Finn and quickly incorporated him into their group. Together they would engage in mock philosophical questions, read a lot and gossip about others, swearing to remain friends for live. Yet, times changed and Adrian was more intelligent and troubled than anyone would have believed thus leading to his cruel fate. It is decades later that Tony discovers an unsettling truth about him, his friend and a girl his former wife only refers to as "The Fruitcake" and history as Tony rembered re-writes itself. The book is rather short and beautifully written with the quiet pace of retirement and remembrance of good times gone. It is also a poignant story of friendship, love and the effects of time on a person's memory and definitely worth the read.
