Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. This is my first Barnes novel, and to listen to it read by Barnes himself is a real treat. I was so impressed that I bought his other books on Audible, and I find that Alex Jennings does a great job.
This book is way too long. And I found myself switch chapters when descriptions of the heroine's shyness came up. The author spelled out every emotion, do we really need this? I went through the whole book, but should have just close it. Not worth my time. Unfortunately, I already bought the sequel when I started this book, on the basis of the first few chapters which at the time seemed inviting.
I just couln't stop listening. This is the first time I listen to a book by Preston and Clild, and Rene Auberjonois, the narrator, did a great job. The plot is full of suspense and surprises, and the narrator's style is so vivid that the story evolves just like a movie.
