    Description

    The international best seller, translated by the award-winning translator of The Tobacconist, Charlotte Collins 

    Winner of the 2016 European Union Prize for Literature 

    Translated by the award-winning translator of The Tobacconist, Charlotte Collins. 

    I've known Death a long time, but now Death knows me.  

    When their idyllic childhood is shattered by the sudden death of their parents, siblings Marty, Liz and Jules are sent to a bleak state boarding school. Once there, the orphans' lives change tracks: Marty throws himself into academic life; Liz is drawn to dark forms of escapism; and Jules transforms from a vivacious child to a withdrawn teenager. 

    The only one who can bring him out of his shell is his mysterious classmate Alva, who hides a dark past of her own, but despite their obvious love for one another, the two leave school on separate paths. 

    Years later, just as it seems that they can make amends for time wasted, the past catches up with them, and fate - or chance - will once again alter the course of a life. 

    Told through the fractured lives of the siblings, The End of Loneliness is a heartfelt, enriching novel about loss and loneliness, family and love.

    So much better than the print version

    This is one of those books you have to listen to so that feel you’ve really read it.

    Thought Provoking

    Not my usual book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It made me think a lot about relationships overall and family ties specifically. A sad book with a great deal of wisdom about life threaded throughout the book. It's a book that I imagine reading at another time in my life.

    Great story, poor volume consistency

    Story was wonderful. Highly recommend. The reader's dynamics were poor. at the beginning, it would alternate between loud and quiet. I had to listen to the first part on max volume in my car in order to hear the quieter sections, only to give myself a headache when he'd get loud again. Thankfully, this stabilized as the story continued, after which it was much less distracting.
