Ripley wants money, success, and the good life, and he's willing to kill for it. When his newfound happiness is threatened, his response is as swift as it is shocking.

"Ripley, amoral, hedonistic, and charming, is a genuinely original creation." (Daily Telegraph)
"Precisely plotted, stylishly written, and kept alert by an icy wit. Streets ahead of the conventional thriller: a cool little classic of its kind." (Evening Standard)

Enjoyed the story but do have some mixed feelings as I struggled to empathise with Mr Ripley most of the time, but I suppose that's the whole point of the book.
The narration is excellent and really made the story come alive.
"A real page turner"
Very entertaining, the time just flew by.
It was very interesting seeing the world through the eyes of Tom Ripley. I disposed on one level but also quite liked him on another.
It was such a good listen I may now check out the next Ripley book.
Once it gets going, it stays going.
Edge of my seat.
In addition to a good thriller, its a compelling set up of Ripley as a character. Also, its a really evocative snapshot of 1950s wealthy/expat/lost-youth/Italian-riviera life. Beautiful like the Sun Also Rises or Great Gatsby.
Tom Ripley is a sympathetic villlain who the reader identifies with against his better judgement. Also, the narrator's voice and reading style on this production could not be bettered, in my view
Not a good read , strange book from start to finish, use your Credit on another book , I would like a refund
Got to be one of the top 5 books ever - great narration, twisting plot, couldn't turn it off...
"Movies v Books"
This is a brief, salient, straight to the point review. I merely wish to say that this listen proves the assumption that the book is always better than the movie. Read the book, watch the movie. You judge.
