The Heart's Invisible Furies
- A Novel
- By: John Boyne
- Narrated by: Stephen Hogan
- Length: 21 hrs and 10 mins
Cyril Avery is not a real Avery - or at least that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead.
Outstanding. A Must listen.

Amazing. A Masterpiece.
If you could sum up The Heart's Invisible Furies in three words, what would they be?
Masterful storytelling, this book has it all: Love, Hate, Tragedy, Hope, Despair. Beautifully told. Everyone should read this. It reminded me of the Irish saying, "He has the gift of gab." I didn't want to put this down or stop listening to the incredible narration!
Have you listened to any of Stephen Hogan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not but will immediately look up everything he has ever narrated and purchase them. Incredible narration!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
