The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

A Beautifully written book that left me so enthralled, I had to reread parts of it again.
The book is divided into two parts; the first is the narrator’s description of his awkward journey from teenager to adulthood in a 1960’s English landscape which entirely missed the sexual revolution. He discusses his relationships and memories of them from the perspective of retirement and how the past is not necessarily what you remember.
The second part of the book begins with a solicitor’s letter telling him he had been bequeathed the diary of a long dead friend. What follows challenges everything he believes of his life from his motivations to his actions.
A short, interesting novel which I recommend reading in just one or two sittings.
