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)
