    "Snobbery, Weakness, Betrayal"

    Cronin's style is terse. His "hero" has survived a poor childhood, an immense struggle to become a doctor, arriving at an early retirement extremely wealthy, with a lifestyle replete with the finest tastes in art and culture. He is nevertheless massively insecure, constantly requiring the approval of those around him, and can be easily swayed as a result, so that not once but twice betrays those dearest to him. He is one of those with good intentions but is ultimately very destructive. Since David Moray is telling the story, we accept his rationalizations until almost the end. I found the book riveting. This is not a book I had been acquainted with before; but I have since gone on something of a Cronin binge because of it.

    The narrator is excellent; really brings the story to life. Highly recommended.

    "Really odd narration"

    This was an odd read, and the man doing the audio has alot of backround noise and he weezes and coughs thru the reading. The story was so so and the main character was not any one I'd want to know..
