Colin Firth adds the most beautiful touch to this incredibly intense and heart wrenching love story. I became completely obsessed with this book. A very quiet yet engaging novel.
The story was boring and stagnant, I just didn't sympathize with any of the characters. I bought it because of Colin Firth.
Was so depressing, I knew inevitably it would be by the title but there didn't seem to be any happy moments. There didn't seem to even be a reason for the affair in the first place.
I listened to it longer because of his voice, but I really couldn't make myself finish the story.
I can't answer that.
Colin Firth's performance was so perfectly matched to the material. There are wonderful talents in the book narration field, most of whom are anonymous to the broader world, but this particular performance with this particular dramatic work is the best I have encountered. I wish more actors would take on the challenge.
How sophisticated, clever and insightful.
When the writer talks freely to the supposedly religious figure in the book
It has an appropriate name
The book is short and very bittersweet.
Firth brings the story alive with such depth of feeling that it breaks your heart.
How beautiful the author makes the pain of the main characters come to life.
Colin Firth's narration is outstanding
Our Man in Havana. Both are good, but The End of the Affair is more thought provoking.
I don't know. It just seemed to sort of drag on & on, and was majorly depressing. Probably just not my taste in books.
Colin Firth was PHENOMENAL
This book was well written';' however, the story moved a little slow. I certainly enjoyed it and for me, it was time well spent.
I would be happy to try another book of Graham Greene. He was able to take a simple story and make it more complex and interesting. I would like to see what else he has to offer.
I have only watched Colin Firth's movies. I have listened to many audiobooks. Listening to Colin read this book was music to my ears. I do not believe that there is another male voice that could compare to his tone or ability.
There is no inspiration in having an affair.
Colin Firth made this book worth listening to.
Colin Firth's narration.
This is the first Graham Greene book I've read or listened to.
This is the first book I've listened to that was narrated by Colin Firth. If there are any others, I will listen to those, too.
I got an email from audible that said Colin Firth was narrating a book. I didn't even need to know what book it was. You had me at "Colin Firth." While the story was fine, nothing unique or compelling, Colin Firth's narration made it something to listen to. Very entertaining and enjoyable. After listening to the audiobook, I watched the two movie adaptations, and I have to say I enjoyed the Neil Jordan version. It modernized the themes a little and made the characters more complex.
if it actually had a story worth reading (hearing)
not written it at all
Wish i had my money back!! I felt mislead by the other reviews - what were they thinking?
Were they all Graham Greene relatives?
One of the worst I ever heard
