I loved listening to this book. It is so beautifully written, so evocative, the characters flawed and real.
The narrator is excellent, perfect for this piece. I would definitely recommend Bel Ami.
This is the most wonderful book. Beautifully written. Very sad, very funny, bleak yet optimistic.
I wish I could listen again for the first time.
This is a fantastic listen...so dark and grim and painful! I, as with one of the other reviewers, found myself gasping throughout. The narration is perfect. Loved it....
A brilliant 'boy's own' story and Robert Powell the perfect choice of narrator. Would definitely recommend.
This is SUCH a long book. Of course I knew how long it was when I bought it, but the way it's written makes the journey a tough one...it's way too long. I did keep going though as the narrative at times was pretty interesting (although I got so bored of hearing Sadie's voice!)... Sometimes thought provoking, I wanted to hear how it all ended. A satisfactory, even moving conclusion, but after all those hours (..days..months...) the end seemed far too brief.
I don't think I would recommend this book.
Perhaps an abridged version would be the answer.
