    Evelyn Waugh's most celebrated work is a memory drama about the intense entanglement of the narrator, Charles Ryder, with a great Anglo-Catholic family. Written during World War II, the story mourns the passing of the aristocratic world Waugh knew in his youth and vividly recalls the sensuous pleasures denied him by wartime austerities; in so doing it also provides a profound study of the conflict between the demands of religion and the desires of the flesh.

    Vieux Carré Blonde says: "Extraordinary"
    "Jeremy Irons is superb."

    Story
    Where does Brideshead Revisited rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The presentation of this (i.e. reading by Jerey Irons) was spectacular. While he had a tidbit of trouble with American & Canadian accents, he captured a huge variety of British noble accents w/o missing a beat.


    What other book might you compare Brideshead Revisited to and why?

    The story itself was a "quick read" - with just enough intrigue, scandal, romance to keep you eager for what comes next. Waugh is expert at this. Cultural clues of the time help transport the reader out of modern day.


    Any additional comments?

    Certainly not my favorite Waugh, but a very well produced nice little slice of modern wartime British lit.
