    First published as four separate novels (Some Do Not…, No More Parades, A Man Could Stand Up, and The Last Post) between 1924 and 1928, Parade’s End explores the world of the English ruling class as it descends into the chaos of war. Christopher Tietjens is an officer from a wealthy family who finds himself torn between his unfaithful socialite wife, Sylvia, and his suffragette mistress, Valentine. A profound portrait of one man’s internal struggles during a time of brutal world conflict, Parade’s End bears out Graham Greene’s prediction that "there is no novelist of this century more likely to live than Ford Madox Ford."

    leora says: "A brilliant, challenging, and valuable work"
    "A Superb Novel; An Excellent Reader"

    Story
    Where does Parade's End rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of those at the top of the list--combining a wonderful, but complex, story, with a reader whose understanding, style, and delivery make all of the complexities seem clear.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Two favorite characters obviously: Christopher Tietjens and Valentine Wannop. Why? Because they are the sympathetic heart of the story. and their growth apart and together is wonderful to see.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Crossley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I do not know whether or not I have, but his performance in this work is outstanding.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Just great enjoyment.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this to anyone who loves literature and the spoken word.
