Definitely the best of Tana French's three novels. The story line is great but the dialogue and the interactions between Frank Mackies very dysfunctional family is brilliantly observed and made the book. The narration is excellent. Fabulous Irish accents and the subtle differences between the characters made it a delight to listen to. I don't often reccommend a listen over a read but in this case definitely the way to go.
Absolutely! We've all read some Hemingway in the past - possibly while we were at school, but listening to one of his earliest books, now that we're older and wiser, brings a whole new dimension. I was inspired to reread this (or should I say listen) after reading The Paris Wife which is about Hemingway and Hadley during the period he wrote The Sun Also Rises. It was wonderful to make the connections between the real life friends and the marvelous characters in the book. I was addicted. I hated unplugging to recharge my iPod. Loved it!!
All the scenes in Paris. It's one of my favorite cities and this just made me wish I had been there in the 1920s.
Mr Hurt did an excellent job. His accents were very respectable but more importantly he has a wonderful cadence to his performance that really captures the pace of the time.
Definitely. I was quite sad as I realized we were nearing the end.
I'm a huge fan of Elizabeth George and have read all her books. My first listening experience of her books was
Yes. As I said although this was not her best, she's a wonderful writer and not every book can be a masterpiece.
Great accents, captured the personalities of the key characters well.
