Críticas:

"Elegant, playful, and remarkable." --"The New Yorker"
"A page-turner, and when you finish you will return immediately to the beginning." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
"Beautiful. . . . An elegantly composed, quietly devastating tale." --Heller McAlpin, NPR
"Dense with philosophical ideas. . . . It manages to create genuine suspense as a sort of psychological detective story." --Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
"Evelyn Waugh did it in "Brideshead Revisited," as did Philip Larkin in "Jill" [and] Kazuo Ishiguro in "The Remains of the Day." Now, with his powerfully compact new novel, Julian Barnes takes his place among the subtly assertive practitioners of this quiet art." --"The New York Times Book Review"
"[A] jewel of conciseness and precision...." The Sense of an Ending" packs into so few pages so much that the reader finishes it with a sense of satisfaction more often derived from novels several times its length." --"The Los Angeles Times"
" "
"Exquisitely crafted, sophisticated, suspenseful, and achingly painful, "The Sense of an Ending" is a meditation on history, memory, and individual responsibility." --"The Philadelphia Inquirer "
"Clever, provocative. . . . A brilliant, understated examination of memory and how it works, how it compartmentalizes and fixes impressions to tidily store away." --"The Minneapolis Star-Tribune"
"Concisely written and yet rich and full of emotional depth. . . . It's highly original as well. And complicated, just like life." --"New York Journal of Books"
"Elegiac yet potent, "The Sense of an Ending" probes the mysteries of how we remember and our impulse to redact, correct--and sometimes entirely erase--our pasts." --"Vogue"
" "
"Ominous and disturbing.... This outwardly tidy and conventional story is one of Barnes's most indelible [and] looms oppressively in our minds." --"The Wall Street Journal"
"At 163 pages, "The Sense of an Ending "is the longest book I have ever read, so prepare yourself for rereading. You won't regret it." --Jane Juska, "The San Francisco Chronicle"
"With his characteristic grace and skill, Barnes manages to turn this cat-and-mouse game into something genuinely suspenseful." --"The Washington Post"
"Ferocious. . . . A book for the ages." --"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"Concisely written and yet rich and full of emotional depth. . . . At times, side-splittingly funny, at others, brutally honest, but always delightfully well observed. . . . Ironically, despite focusing on endings, and on suicide, this is a tremendously life-affirming work. It's highly original as well. And complicated, just like life." --"New York Journal of Books"
"Elegiac yet potent, "The Sense of an Ending" probes the mysteries of how we remember and our impulse to redact, correct - and sometimes entirely erase - our pasts. . . . Barnes's highly wrought meditation on aging gives just as much resonance to what is unknown and unspoken as it does to the momentum of its own plot." --"Vogue"
"Novel, fertile and memorable . . . . A highly wrought meditation on aging, memory and regret." --"The Guardian" (London)
"A brilliant, understated examination of memory and how it works, how it compartmentalizes and fixes impressions to tidily store away. . . . Clever, provocative. . . . Barnes reminds his readers how fragile is the tissue of impressions we conveniently rely upon as bedrock." --"Minneapolis Star-Tribune"
"Brief, beautiful. . . . That fundamentally chilling question--Am I the person I think I am?--turns out to be a surprisingly suspenseful one. . . . As Barnes so elegantly and poignantly reveals, we are all unreliable narrators, redeemed not by the accuracy of our memories but by our willingness to question them." --"The Boston Globe."
" "
"Quietly mesmerizing. . . . A slow burn, measured but suspenseful, this compact novel makes every slyly crafted sentence count." --"The Independent" (London)
"Deliciously intriguing...with complex and subtle undertones [and] laced with Barnes' trademark wit and graceful writing." --"The Washington Times"

Reseña del editor:

This Man Booker Prize-winning novel is now a major motion picture.
A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single setting, The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication of Henry James at his best, and is a stunning achievement in Julian Barnes's oeuvre.
This intense novel follows Tony Webster, a middle-aged man, as he contends with a past he never thought much about--until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance: one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony thought he left this all behind as he built a life for himself, and his career has provided him with a secure retirement and an amicable relationship with his ex-wife and daughter, who now has a family of her own. But when he is presented with a mysterious legacy, he is forced to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.
