Bendrix, as evidenced by his ability to tell the story, is not dead, merely unconscious, and so Sarah must keep her promise. She breaks off the relationship without giving a reason, leaving Bendrix mystified and angry. The only explanation he can think of is that she's left him for another man. It isn't until years later, when he hires a private detective to ascertain the truth, that he learns of her impassioned vow. Sarah herself comes to understand her move through a strange rationalization.
Writing to God in her journal, she says: You willed our separation, but he [Bendrix] willed it too. He worked for it with his anger and his jealousy, and he worked for it with his love. For he gave me so much love, and I gave him so much love that soon there wasn't anything left, when we'd finished, but You.
It's as though the pull toward faith were inevitable, if incomprehensible--perhaps as punishment for her sin of adultery. In her final years, Sarah's faith only deepens, even as she remains haunted by the bombing and the power of her own attraction to God.
Set against the backdrop of a war-ravaged city, The End of the Affair is equally haunting as it lays forth the question of what constitutes love in troubling, unequivocal terms.
The heroine is consistently lovable.
It gets me every time. A master of storytelling. For experience of a whole century he was the man within. He taught us to look at each other with new eyes.

The lovers meet at a party thrown by Sarah's dreary civil-servant husband, and proceed to liberate each other from boredom and routine unhappiness.
Reflecting on the ebullient beginnings of their romance, Bendrix recalls: Sarah rushes down to find him lying under a fallen door, and immediately makes a deal with God, whom she has never particularly cared for. I'll give him up forever, only let him be alive with a chance People can love each other without seeing each other, can't they, they love You all their lives without seeing You.

After recently finishing Mr. They reminded me more of self-absorbed adolescents than of adults living in London through World War 11 and its aftermath.
Nevertheless, I plan on reading much more of Mr. Greene's works.
My negative reaction to this book has in no way discouraged me from exploring all of this marvelous writer's work. This is an excellent novel, and one that's even better as an audiobook. Colin Firth does an unbelievable job bringing this book to life.
I was riveted through the entirety.
This is a novel that will make you question the nature of love and religion, without giving you the answer. I listened to this book while driving cross-country, which wasn't ideal for two reasons. First, the novel had me openly weeping at several points, which isn't great while driving for obvious reasons. Second, I was so riveted that everything else I should have been paying attention to while driving was a nuisance.
While this certainly made the hours fly by, be safe! This is one audiobook that will demand your full attention.

I absolutely recommend. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
I did not enjoy this book. I struggled to care about the characters and I was actually relieved when I finished the book.
I like the intelligence and wittiness of the author,how well he tells the story, and how vividly he portrays the characters such that you feel as if you know them. The story is very layered and isnt a cheap read. Using the Kindle app helped me to immediately find definitions for unfamilar words or expressions.
Even though not a religious book, i was surprised at the spiritual and philosophical questions raised or implied. It challenged some of my opinions about faith and how we see God. Striking comment that stood out is that we make God in our own image, the irony of what Scriptures say. The story has a very interesting and surpising end that invites discussion if one is in a book club.Not so remarkable, actually, and certainly not secret.
Sarah dies, and starts to happen something inexplicable. Mikhail Bulgakov. He pounces on my words like a barrister and twists them. In , the year he joined the Communist party of great Britain tried to obtain an invitation to visit the Soviet Union.
