    When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early 40s, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.

    Michael says: "Don't have expectations!"
    "a fascinating study of small town life"

    Story
    What did you love best about The End of the Affair?

    I loved the way all of the characters emotions were disseted,it wasn't a romance as such but a studyof love and hate set aginst a background of stiff Bristish mores.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The End of the Affair?

    When Maurice and Sarah were making love in her drawing room on the lounge, and her pleasure was audible,maurice afraid her husband who was ill upstairs would hear her cries of passion,she replies that he would not recognise the sound.It was sad.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In the church, when Maurice had stalked Sarah after their breakup. She was so ill she had fallen asleep on his shoulder,he was under the impression they would go away together,she was actually dying and too exhausted to deny his wish.


    If you could rename The End of the Affair, what would you call it?

    The woman who loved.


    Any additional comments?

    This was quite a sad book,two people who were almost happy,circumstances were against their union.
