I got this audiobook because of a sale. I am so glad I did. It was so much better than I thought it would be. I enjoyed this deep and thought provoking story, and was reminded once again of God's love for us and how He pursues us in all things.
away,more books read by him please! Will listen to again and again! And Go Mr.Firth!
This was a heartbreaking and poignant story of a man who is grieving the numerous losses of his former lover. The story offers us an inside perch into his sorrows, his struggles and his attempts to reconcile and understand the roles that God plays in our lives. How fascinating that we all walk this Earth together and yet we all follow such dissimilar paths towards happiness and peace as we attempt to create what can only be for each of us, an existence of personal meaning and salvation... I won't forget the grief and the lessons endured through this story as I travel the path of my own life!
Oh my god I fell in love with the narration, Colin Firth does an amazing job, just stunning.
The writing is typical of that of the British school, stylish and vivid.
I found the story interesting, but nothing more than that.
It definitely worths a hearing !
Great novel; great narrator who brought story to life. Written in 1951 timeless despite setting of Lindon during the 1940's.
The thing that made this book so compelling to me is that all the characters are grotesque, except for Sarah who is a saint, and they come to believe in a God they don't want to believe in or even acknowledge. This is what makes the book so real - and Christian. This more I read GG the more he sounds like Flannery O'Conner.
