The Sense of an Ending - Julian Barnes Having just finished this absolutely fantastic book, I cannot, nor will I ever be able to accurately detail how much I love this book. I have simultaneously reviewed my whole life, my loves, my regrets, and my failings and have come back feeling as if this singular author has not only bared his own soul, but has cleansed my own. Rarely do I come to tears with any novel, but even more telling is my sense of wonder through this journey. Even without the finality of the last pages, this is a novel that will remain close to my heart until I die.
