Book of the Week: The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes
This week’s book of the week is a critically acclaimed novel and also a finalist for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. The winner of the Booker Prize will be announced later today (at 4:48 pm, to be exact). Julian Barnes has been shortlisted for the Booker three times previously, and seems to be the favorite this time. Perhaps the fourth time will be the charm!
We love The Sense of an Ending for many reasons–the beautiful, lyrical writing; the insight; and the twist at the end. If you’re in the mood to be introspective, this book will prompt you to consider the real meaning of a life well-lived. Or, if you’re just in the mood for a dazzling read that you will want to devour in a single sitting, this short (176-page) page-turner is completely absorbing. And when you finish, you just might want to start reading again from the beginning.
Throughout the week, we’ll be linking to reviews, interviews, and other goodies related to our Book of the Week, so be sure to come back for more on The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes.
