Tony Webster was a part of a three-lad clique until the enigmatic Adrian Finn appeared at their school. From then on, their sex-starved, book-hungry group had a new member who was more intelligent and sophisticated than the rest of them. The usual banter, wit and friendly competition was a staple of their friendship and, on their departure to different universities, the foursome agree to remain lifelong friends.
Now in middle age, Tony is divorced, has had a satisfying career and believes he has never hurt anyone, even his divorce was calm. However, Tony is about to realise that memory is not as perfect as he once believed. All that Tony held true is about to be thrown into question by a surprise letter from a solicitor.
‘The Sense of an Ending’ won the Booker Prize this year and it is a very worthy winner. It’s a simply told tale, with an intelligent but fallible narrator. Tony’s narration is so matter of fact that you never have any reason to question him. I really enjoyed this unusual story.
