Grrr If only these people Barnes’ characters would sit down and discuss amongst themselves then there will be no problem Then Tony Webster will not have to spend all his life trying to grapple the memories he thought to be contained in his whole pathetic life You see Tony Webster is a double sided man he seems to be this gentle go with the flow nice man who respects his girlfriend not to have real sex until they are ready However when his girlfriend dumps him for Tony Webster’s friend he writes the bitterest letter that I’ve read coming from a dumped lover The

Who HASN'T done that?And why the money from The Mother? Doesn't make any sense Nor does younger Adrian's fear of Tony when he mentions being friends with Mary And why the heck didn't The Mother leave her mone
