Publisher's Summary

The inspiration for a major film releasing 2008 starring Emma Thompson and Michael Gambon.

A study of faith and disillusionment in a glamorous upper-class world, Waugh's most famous novel is partly autobiographical and is a gripping multi-character-study of aristocratic life behind closed doors.

Charles Ryder meets Sebastian, a member of the aristocratic Flyte family, at Oxford. He then begins to spend time at the family home, Brideshead, where he is welcomed into the fold and enjoys a decadent high-society lifestyle.

Things start to unravel, however, when Charles notices the cracks in the veneer: his perception of the naivety of the family's devotion to the Catholic faith, and his friend's increasing drink habit. Tangled webs of love and obsession also threaten to break up the at first happy idyll.

Examining the complexity of relationships and the strength of belief, 'Brideshead Revisited' is an intense listen and a riveting one.

    "An entertaining and emotionally satisfying listen"

    I loved this narration of Brideshead Revisited. Not having read the book or seen the TV series for over 25 years I couldn't remember much beyond the Oxford scenes and the Catholic thread; so I was revisiting it with an open mind. I found it an involving story, superbly narrated by Jeremy Northam, and ultimately very moving and thought provoking.

    "Apparently a classic"

    Perhaps its my own ignorance, but I hated this book it was boring from start to finish. The narrator did a decent job of building up and tension etc but it just want for me.
