Publisher's Summary

In Talking It Over, Gillian and Stuart were married until Oliver - witty, feckless Oliver - stole her away. In Love, etc, Julian Barnes revisits Stuart, Gillian, and Oliver, using the same intimate technique of allowing the characters to speak directly to the listener, to whisper their secrets, to argue for their version of the truth… Love, etc is a compelling exploration of contemporary love and its betrayals.

witty, clever, but not engaging

I like Barnes' writing, admire it too, but this somehow never grabbed me. Maybe the characters are too up themselves and thereby unsympathetic? But not to say unbelievable and maybe fairly typical of some members of the chattering classes. So, I loved the wit, thought the narrators did a good job of translating the unusual structure of the book into an enjoyable listen - but, ultimately, didn't give adman about the story itself.
