Night Music | [Jojo Moyes]

Night Music

The Spanish House is a mixture of designs, Georgian, Gothic and Moorish, as if whoever started it had simply got bored. It has long been known as an architectural folly to locals, and is now nearly derelict to boot. When its reclusive owner dies intestate, the Spanish House is left to his city-dwelling niece. For Isabel, recently widowed, the house is a potential lifeline - the only hope she has of providing for her two children without having to sell her most treasured possession.

Publisher's Summary

The Spanish House is a mixture of designs, Georgian, Gothic and Moorish, as if whoever started it had simply got bored. It has long been known as an architectural folly to locals, and is now nearly derelict to boot.

When its reclusive owner dies intestate, the Spanish House is left to his city-dwelling niece. For Isabel, recently widowed, the house is a potential lifeline - the only hope she has of providing for her two children without having to sell her most treasured possession.

But for neighbour Matt McCarthy, the house is revenge - on the family who ruined his father. For his wife it's the key to the perfect family life, while a struggling property developer sees in it a whole new future. As desires clash and intertwine, lives and loves are demolished - and the Spanish House becomes a true folly indeed...

    "I enjoyed this story"

    Night Music hit all the right notes (ha ha). :-) I really enjoyed the story and the narrator was very good. The story is good from the beginning to the end with no boring parts. I'm also glad the author knew when to end the story and did not extend it longer than necessary.

    "Jojo Moyes is my favorite."
    Any additional comments?

    Jojo Moyes is my favorite author now. I read one of her books and loved it so I tried another. most of the time I am disappointed in the next book I read by the same author, this time I was pleasantly surprised. So I dared to do it a third time and then a fourth. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of them and give them 4 stars each, something I rarely do.

    Story
    "A good book but not a great book"
    What did you love best about Night Music?

    Picturing the scene where the house was set - the village and characters.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was ok I think. I listened to this book about 4 weeks ago and I cannot actually remember the ending...so I guess it wasn't very memorable!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Clare Corbett?

    Yes.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, it was a bit predictable. I liked the Byron character, so I think his relationship with the young boy would be the most compelling relationship of the story - therefore a bit moving I guess.


    Any additional comments?

    An easy listen...not overly memorable or anything...but 'nice'.

    "Night Music"

    This is my 4th Jojo Moyes audible book and each one is so different with one thing in common, you have a problem in putting them down. I think this may be my favourite but then again I think that about each book. and I'm about to start my 5th. This is one talented author.

    "Excellent book"

    I couldn't wait to get back into the car to hear the next segment of this book. I would definitely recommend it. The characters are described very well so well you can almost picture each person and each scene. The narrator was by good too. Definitely worth downloading.

    Story
    "Different again - what a story teller"
    Would you listen to Night Music again? Why?

    No, i enjoyed it but I've enjoyed other of her books which were more interesting, Me before you for example.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can't remember the chapter but the part where the children start to settle in stands out.


    What does Clare Corbett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Can't say really, a good reading voice maybe


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

    No not really, obvioulsly I should have written this review immediately after finishing it instead of two weeks later!


    Any additional comments?

    Nice easy story, didn't take it to bed though so not that gripping !!

    Story
    "Hungry for more!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Jojo Moyes' descriptive writing is amazing. I loved the description of being out in the woods, I felt like I was there.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The descriptive writing.
    Jojo Moyes left me hanging for more, I wanted her to impart Boyd's knowledge of foraging so I could do it for myself.


    Which character – as performed by Clare Corbett – was your favourite?

    Kitty was performed well. I didn't like her performances of the two supposed men in their 30's, they struck me as being older and took some of the passion of this story away for me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    A brilliant book, left me wanting to immerse myself in music and nature.

    Story
    "Quite Good but not brilliant"

    I read this on immediatly after Me Before You, which I had utterley devoured - a difficult bok to follow. I thought Night Music was ok and I did get into to it in the end and quite enjoyed it, but Me Before You will stay with me for a very long time, whereas this one is simply a novel to read and forget. Sorry Jojo

    "A thoroughly enjoyable story"

    This story unfolds and captivates the listener! A little slow to start, though once you start this you will become totally involved with the characters. If this were a normal book i could not put it down!
