    When Percy Harding, Goliath’s most important citizen, is discovered dead by the railroad tracks outside of town one perfect autumn afternoon, no one can quite believe it’s really happened. Percy, the president of the town’s worldrenowned furniture company, had seemed invincible. Only Rosamond Rogers, Percy’s secretary, may have had a glimpse of how and why this great man has fallen, and that glimpse tugs at her, urges her to find out more.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't think I can get past chapter three. The reader is so slow and the writing is so over-done that I'm having a hard time concentrating on the story... if there is a story to concentrate on that is. The descriptions are too wordy and the author uses too many metaphors. I'm not sure I need a table described to me in metaphor. It reminds me of a high school student aiming for a better grade by using bigger words. I thinking about counting the times the author uses the word "plume" and turning it into a drinking game.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different reader reading a different book.

  • The End of the Affair

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 28 mins)

    Story
    (2345)

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Where does The End of the Affair rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best audiobooks though not one of the best books.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Fairly predictable throughout. The last part was a bit silly, as if the author was reaching to make a point.


    What does Colin Firth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This story is not captivating enough to have listened to it if read by someone else. The listener's interest is peaked by the way he reads the story. Beautiful
