"An extremely moving, a precise book about the imprecision of memory and how it constructs people, stories and histories." -- Alasitair Bruce Guardian "Intriguing and engaging." -- David Robb Daily Express "A masterpiece... I would urge you to read - and re-read - The Sense of an Ending" Daily Telegraph "Mesmerising... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller - a whodunit of memory and morality" Independent "A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived... Barnes has achieved...something of universal importance" -- Justin Cartwright Observer
