I chose the Graham Greene book because Colin Firth was the narrator.
the setting in London during the second WWII was fascinating. The
Characters went right along with their work, dalliances, dates, and going to restaurants. The bombing just happened to be a slight inconvenience. Review:
Masterful stuff from Graham Greene. The story of the struggles with faith and love are brilliantly brought to life by Colin Firth.
The characters are vividly drawn as one would expect from Greene but the most compelling pieces are not about them but about the struggle many go through in trying to understand love and what it means to us and to those we love. Personally, I've never had a struggle with my lack of faith but I recognize many of the feelings and thoughts his characters go through.
A masterpiece of storytelling and prose. This book dissects an affair and how it affects everyone involved. The writing pulls you into their world from the moment you start reading.
Graham Greene's The End of the Affair is a masterpiece of post-war literature. It weaves a compelling and poignant narrative about the search for meaning in life through the expert manipulation of time to selectively fill in the details of life. The use of letters and journals bridges streams of consciousness in a lovely evolution of the technique. On top of all that, Colin Firth's narration is spectacular and serves as another force pulling you into the story!
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!
