"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) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Well-balanced, lovely book for all to re-think and re-remember our lives.
I consider his Flaubert's Parrot a more appropriate candidate for winning the Booker prize.
