    Tony Webster has always made the very reasonable assumption that he could trust his memories, but when he's forced to revisit his past, everything he believes about himself and his life is challenged. The fact is that Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, never gave much thought to his past at all until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance -- one of them from the grave and another maddeningly present.

not my cup of tea

by Katharina W on Mar 21, 2013

Whilst I can appreciate the writing skills of Julian Barnes, I did not enjoy the book. For my reading taste, it is too much of a downer. However, that said, it has some comical moments in it, and it is artfully written. It was a book group choice, and in our discussion, there was still a lot of confusion as to what exactly happened and who did what, so clearly, the author did not manage to convey all the necessary details - or left us in the dark deliberately.
