What the Critics Say

"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)

    "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.

    "Very Entertaining"

    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

    "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.
