    "Torn"

    It is about a woman torn between loyalty to her family and her new, but deep, love for another man. It is moving without being sentimental and is at times profound. As it is set in the late 50s and early 60s (against the backdrop of the US presidential race between Kennedy and Nixon), having an affair was even more "not the done thing" than today. It is well observed, atmospheric and, inevitably, sad. Well narrated. The reader has a british accent and his American accents may not sound fine to an American listener, but did the job for me.

    "Beautifully written"

    Whilst this isn't Faulks' best novel, I still thoroughly enjoyed it and if you're a Faulkes fan, then it's worth listening to.

    "On Green Dolphin Street (Unabridged)"

    Looking for something different I thought Sebastian Faulks would be a safe bet, but this was a truly unremarkable book. The diplomat's wife was a poor heroine and her lover short on character. My mind constantly wandered and I had to rewind to pick up the thread of the weak plot that seemed to revolve around the JF Kennedy election campaign. I doggedly listened to the end in the hope that it might liven up. However, I was left wondering if I had missed something vital and should listen again, but I couldn't face it.
