    Tony Webster and his clique first met Adrian Finn at school. Sex-hungry and book-hungry, they would navigate the girl-less sixth form together, trading in affectations, in-jokes, rumor, and wit. Maybe Adrian was a little more serious than the others, certainly more intelligent, but they all swore to stay friends for life. Now Tony is retired. He’s had a career and a single marriage, a calm divorce. He’s certainly never tried to hurt anybody. Memory, though, is imperfect. It can always throw up surprises, as a lawyer’s letter is about to prove.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Sense of an Ending in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating, complex, compelling


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Sense of an Ending?

    When Tony's wife told him he was on his own now..... profound - for him


    Which character – as performed by Richard Morant – was your favorite?

    Margaret - actually, the only character I can say I liked!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end, when Tony realized his mistakes, regrets, that he'd never change, but that he was alright with it all. Resigned to his life and content.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a book group read - our first of the season. For such a relatively short book, it sure had a lot going on. Our book group members are (almost) all in our 60's and could relate to Tony's musings at the end of the story, as well as being young women in the beginning days of the sexual revolution. There was lots to discuss and several differing opinions, but to a person, we all liked the book very much.
