"The book is hypnotizing." (Publishers Weekly)
"With utterly brilliant understatement, Sir Ian prepares us from the beginning for the startling denouement, while simultaneously (and amazingly) keeping us totally in the dark about it. Further, while giving the impression that he's not doing anything special, he delivers all the shadowy beauty and psychological insight of a very fine novel." (AudioFile)
Asylum is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to.
The plot held surprises and I found plenty of smpathy for the characters.
Ian McKellan was fantastic. His voice and age were perfect for the narrator's own voice.
Very enjoyable listening experience.
This was a good story and well read. Nice and long and held my interest with well developed characters and plot. If you like Shutter Island you'll enjoy this.
