The Sense Of An Ending: Julian Barnes

Not so much a whodunnit as a wotthehellhaveIdun. Tony Webster, our narrator, has lived a typically placid, boring, late 20th century, middle-class life.  There was however this one episode- back in his student days- that disrupted the flow- his memory of which is partial and self serving.

A compelling story, but it would have been finished by the half way point if one of the characters- instead of stringing Tony along- had done the more plausible thing and given him an earful.
