Book review (?)

The sense of a carve-up
So, I've just finished reading Julian Barnes's 'A Sense of an Ending' and I'm wondering what all the fuss was about. It's very accessible and it has a very readable style, and there's an interesting sense of mystery seemingly generated by the unreliable narrators disconnect with his own reality, but in the end all he did was write a nasty letter; it's not like he impregnated his girlfriend's mother, is it?!

He might be a bit dull, he might be a bit of a dick, and he might be a delusional idiot, but he's not the anti-Christ. So...? So what? A good book with an interesting narrative style, made average by a clunky, pointless, ineffectual plot twist.

Booker prize, my arse.
