Talking It Over review õ 103 's time to talk it all over Because although they'd all agree that the orderliness of their lives has suddenly mutated into chaos the alarming fluctuations of love being the chief culprit that's about all they'd agree on One bit of information and people are immediately off into their theories says Stuart a bit pedantically And each of them is determined to be heardWhat we hear are three wonderfully realized voices telling three wildly different versions of one story presenting the protean facts of disintegrating and escalating affections layi Do we really need to read another book about a love triangle In this case absolutely Barnes Flaubert s Parrot The Sense Of An Ending is such a clever observant and graceful writer that he makes you care about the lives of three typical but oh so flawed Londoners conscientious banker Stuart unemployed but well educated Oliver and Stuart s wife and the book s least developed character picture restorer GillianTheir first person voices are vivid and believable And while there is genuine pain and heartbreak in here confronted with your typical British stiff upper lip you can easily file the book under Comedy of Errors and Eros Oliver s snobbish pronouncements are especially hilariousNote There s a seuel called Love Etc the title refers to one of the amusing chapters in the book I m definitely picking it up later this year
