Any Human Heart | [William Boyd]

Any Human Heart

Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary, but Logan Mountstuart's - lived from the beginning to the end of the 20th century - contains more than its fair share of both. As a writer who finds inspiration with Hemingway in Paris and Virginia Woolf in London, as a spy recruited by Ian Fleming and betrayed in the war and as an art-dealer in '60s New York, Logan mixes with the movers and shakers of his times. But as a son, friend, lover and husband, he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness.

    "Any Human Heart - another great Boyd listen"

    Taking us through the vagaries of adolescence and early adulthood, school, university, friendships and their betrayal, Boyd gives another easy, amusing and honest story, to which we can all relate.



    Great story and very well narrated, bringing the cast of characters to life.

    "Excellent"

    This is an excellent version of a brilliant book. An epic but very personal story. Highly recommended.

    "Excellent"

    Another triumph from Boyd. Every book I read of his is well written and completely different from his others.



    Logan's life takes one through the whole of the twentieth century seen through the eyes of a truly likable man. Totally believable and fasinating. Excellent portraits of the people he meets, the places he went and the events he lived through.

    "So glad I have found this author"

    I must be one of the very few who hadn't read WB. I read the reviews of this and I am so happy I went ahead and got the download. Such a beautifully written, long and engaging book. Also, I did very much appreciate the narration - perfect.

    "most enjoyable"

    This book was great. Nothing very exciting or intriguing happens but it is simply the history from childhood to death of a singularly normal man but written in such a way as to hold the attention and look forward to the next chapter. At times one can see the naivity of the character yet he is very discerning with a robust attitude to life and clearly a very good friend to have around despite his heavy drinking habit and somewhat ardent sex life. The character draws you in and you cannot but help to love this rather irascible man.
