    Story
    (415)

    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 recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes it was very engaging and makes you think about the nature of memory and thought


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

    the many surprising plot developments and the reflections on memory


    What does Richard Morant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His awesome accent. I started thinking in a British accent after my commute.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It didn't make me cry but it was very thought provoking about a number of topics- suicide, memory, how we justify our own actions, our life story, growing older, and many more

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness to be better than the print version?

    I found the beginning somewhat boring and the character did not seem realistic. However, the story improves and gets interesting. By the end I did not want to get out of the car.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very surprising


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I did not like the performance...she was too monotone
