    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Sense of an Ending to be better than the print version?

    This is a very well written book, and there were times I wanted to savor the words by rereading them. Depends on how you are playing the audible book, but my device does not make it easy to go back just a little. So, my recommendation to a friend would be to read it but do so in print. That said, it is a worthwhile listen, and one of those books that you want to discuss afterwards with someone else who has read it.


    If you could rename The Sense of an Ending, what would you call it?

    Perspective on a Life.

    Ten years ago, Izzy Stone's mother fatally shot her father while he slept. Devastated by her mother's apparent insanity, Izzy, now 17, refuses to visit her in prison. But her new foster parents, employees at the local museum, have enlisted Izzy's help in cataloguing items at a long-shuttered state asylum. There, amid piles of abandoned belongings, Izzy discovers a stack of unopened letters, a decades-old journal, and a window into her own past.

    Much said about how women are treated by society in two different time periods. Good story. The ending was a little too good to be believable.
