This was my first Julian Barnes novel. I’ve never read any of his work and I can’t tell you how I came by this book. Probably a blog recommendation or something, but I’m glad I read it.
I read this book in a day and was just sucked into the story. A man who thinks he has left his past life behind him is pulled back into it again. It was a good read and one of the few books that I read in 2016 that was from an author in another country, so yea me for boarding my reading. It has several awards:
- Man Booker Prize (2011)
- Warwick Prize for Writing Nominee for Longlist (2013)
- Costa Book Award Nominee for Novel (2011)
- Europe Literatuurprijs (2012)
