A story about the unreliability of memory and how we can chose to forget or to reinvent the past in order not to remember disturbing truths.
I discovered this book by Julian Barnes when reading comments about Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan which is a book I also enjoyed. The tone of the story is quite similar in some ways. Barnes, McEwan and Coetzee have a way with words that I find brilliant. They use simple prose but with such a punch.
I am not fully satisfied about how the author finished the book and left some of the events unexplained. Maybe that was the intention but I would have liked to understand a little bit better the reason behind some of Veronica's behavior.
