Summer has technically arrived and you’d think it would be hot and sunny here in Greece, but, the last few days have been rainy and cool.
My British friends feel right at home :)
It is the perfect weather to curl up with a good book, if you’re not obsessed with watching the World Cup games, that is.
Over the weekend, I was looking for a good Book Club podcast to follow and I stumbled upon the first episode of the Idle Book Club Podcast.
They had read ‘The Sense of an Ending,’ (2011) by Julian Barnes and although I haven’t read it yet, I was intrigued by some of its main themes.
Our memory vs What Actually Happened – The notion that we all experience and remember events slightly differently than others at the same event.
Responsibility (or the lack thereof) – How when we’re young and hot blooded, we do things (like writing a harsh letter to someone and giving it to them) that we may not have done at a more mature period of our lives.
I think I am guilty of both of the above and I plan on reading the book this week.
Have you read it? What did you think?
The book is also now a film. starring Michelle Dockery, Emily Mortimer, Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, and Harriet Walter.
