    Who is A. N. Dyer? & Sons is a literary masterwork for readers of The Art of Fielding, The Emperor’s Children, and Wonder Boys - the panoramic, deeply affecting story of an iconic novelist, two interconnected families, and the heartbreaking truths that fiction can hide.

    Doug P. says: "Full of brilliant bits and pieces"
    "I finally finished"

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

    I would say that it was difficult to finish this book. By the time it was over I had no interest in the characters or their lives. I agree that there are passages of brilliant writing -but for the most part it was hard for me to stay engaged in the story.


    Do you think And Sons needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No -

    No outsiders are ever admitted to the monastery of Saint-Gilbert-Entre-les-Loups, hidden deep in the wilderness of Quebec, where two dozen cloistered monks live in peace and prayer. They grow vegetables, they tend chickens, they make chocolate. And they sing. Ironically, for a community that has taken a vow of silence, the monks have become world-famous for their glorious voices, raised in ancient chants whose effect on both singer and listener is so profound it is known as “the beautiful mystery.”

    Sparkly says: "Engaging, entertaining, and heartbreaking."
    "Not prepared for the ending"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Beautiful Mystery the most enjoyable?

    Ralph Cosham is the voice of Armand Garmache- he is an excellent narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    I am ready to return to Three Pines, I miss the regular characters especially Ruth and Gabri.
