"An extremely moving, a precise book about the imprecision of memory and how it constructs people, stories and histories." (Alasitair Bruce Guardian)
"Intriguing and engaging." (David Robb Daily Express)
"Packs quite an emotional punch... Julian Barnes unravels the mystery with masterly skill. He springs surprise after surprise without stooping to sensationalism in a crisp, engaging tale" (Max Davidson Daily Mail)
"Written in beautifully cadenced prose, it is a mature writer's reflections on love and marriage... on family and friendship, on work and death" (Time Out)
"There is no catastrophe, simply a dawning awareness of the past, its consequences and its meaning for the present. It is a familiar narrative structure, but in the hands of the master-wordsmith that Barnes has become, the effect is cumulatively overwhelming... A compelling, disturbing and profoundly moving story of human fallibility" (Daniel Johnson Standpoint)
'A masterpiece.' (The Daily Telegraph)
'Mesmerising ... the concluding scenes grip like a thriller – a whodunit of memory and morality.' (The Independent)
'A very fine book, skilfully plotted, boldly conceived ... Barnes has achieved ... something of universal importance.' (The Observer)
'A precise, poignant portrait of the costs and benefits of time passing, of friendship, of love. A small masterpiece.' (The Times)
'A wonderful story that is all too human and all so real.' (The Irish Times) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

I read this book for my book group and can't see what all the fuss was about.
I don't want to give away any spoilers so will just lay out my three gripes with this novel. Read more
Does what it says on the cover, being an unreliable narrator sketching out his past and giving us his viewpoint. Good twist at the end. Lovely read.Published 6 days ago by MRS SM OWEN
Having begun my journey into the world of Julian Barnes with 'Metroland', I thought I would start to make my way through his other novels to see if I enjoyed them as much. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Snazz150
Thoroughly enjoyed. No puzzle at all. It's about human frailties and all is finally revealed!Published 26 days ago by Leigh
A typically sparse, emotionally desiccated novel about history, action and reaction and consequence. Read morePublished 29 days ago by Lynda Edward
I’m ashamed to say this is the first book I’ve read by Julian Barnes but, safe to say, it won’t be my last. Read morePublished 1 month ago by WhatCathyReadNext
