    It is 1925, and Richard Diver is the high priest of the good life on the white sands of the French Riviera. The Beautiful People – film stars, socialites, aristocrats – gather eagerly and bitchily around him and his wife Nicole. Beneath the breathtaking glamour, however, is a world of pain, and there is at the core of their lives a brittle hollowness. Beautiful, powerful and tragic, Tender is the Night is one of the great works of American fiction.

    Overall

    The narration of this made me absolutely nuts. The reader has a good feel for the story but ruins the book by ending almost every sentence on an up inflection as in a question. The end result was that all of the characters sounded perpetually petulant so by the time things are falling apart you are so annoyed that there is no impact.
