I d forgotten how contemplative and funny Julian Barnes is The mood of this novel is nostalgic and retrospective but not saccharine That a book so touching and tragic could be so ironic and amusing and helplessly sad and then end on a cold blunt note struck me as realistic and sort of wonderful I really admired the final pages I don t think it should have ended any other way Our lives are often disastrous and heart breaking our minds flit back and forth and sometimes we are cold and cruel and sometimes we just appear that way and sometimes we are so young and almost always we get broken and this looking back and picking apart by Barnes s narrator this drowning in what happened and what was and how it ended was right up my alley I enjoy it now that it s over oddly Perhaps it was triggering for me I didn t realize that there was panic inside her How could I have guessed I thought it was just inside me Now I realize rather late in the day that it is in everyone It s a condition of our mortality We have codes of manners to allay and minimise it jokes and routines and so many forms of diversion and distraction But there is panic and pandemonium waiting to break out inside all of us of this I am convinced I ve seen it roar out among the dying as a last protest against the human condition and its chronic sadness But it is there in the most balanced and rational of us You just need the right circumstances and it will surely appear And then you are at its mercy The panic takes some to God others to despair some to charitable works others to drink some to emotional oblivion others to a life where they hope nothing serious will ever trouble them againAnd when I see pairs of young lovers vertically entwined on street corners or horizontally entwined on a blanket in the park the main feeling it arouses in me is a kind of protectiveness No not pity protectiveness Not that they would want my protection And yet and this is curious the bravado they show in their behavior the stronger my response I want to protect them from what the world is probably going to do to them and from what they will probably do to each otherAnd by that time he had made the most terrifying discovery of his life one which probably cast a shadow over all his subseuent relationships the realization that love even the most ardent and the most sincere can given the correct assault curdle into a mixture of pity and anger His love had gone had been driven out month by month year by year But what shocked him was that the emotions which replaced it were just as violent as the love which had previously stood in his heart And so his life and his heart were just as agitated as before except that she was no longer able to assuage his heart And that finally was when he had to give her back

characters The Only Story Julian Barnes À 5 Free read Free read The Only Story ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Would you rather love the and suffer the ; or love the less and suffer the less That is I think finally the only real uestionFirst love has lifelong conseuences but Paul doesn’t. This is Julian Barnes s latest offering an author I absolutely adore It is a profound and moving love story and the complexities intense suffering and heartbreak that accompanies it It has Paul looking back on his only story the love of his life and his shifting perspectives as time passes Barnes can be relied on for his well crafted beautiful prose and imagery underscored by a musicality that beguiles and delights The novel is split into three parts and relates the story of 19 year old Paul a Sussex University student who in 1963 meets and falls in love with 48 year old married Susan who has children older than him and carries heavy emotional baggage from her personal history What follows in a detailed examination of the repercussions on the people in their lives of their love affair amidst the middle class suburban attitudes social norms and expectations of the period that the lovers are subject toBarnes uses the classic device of moving from first person narrative to the second person and finally the third person to highlight the increasing distance that Paul injects into his love story moving from the intense passion at the beginning to a dispassionate approach He is aware that his memories are unreliable and his thinking tainted by self delusion What Barnes gives is his insights into the human condition a subtle reflection and observations on the nature of love and the trajectory it follows for Paul infused with an air of melancholia set in a specific time and place Whilst there are echoes of Barnes previous novels I found this a brilliant and thought provoking read that I recommend highly Many thanks to Random House Vintage for an ARC
