This book is filled with descriptions that fill your senses, giving you a taste of an Italy torn apart by fascism, war and its aftermath. Intertwined through a tale of greed and corruption is a love story that carries the listener along, impatient to hear what happens next, yet not wanting the story the end. With excellent narration by Imogen Church, I cannot recommend highly enough

Great performances from all the actors took this convoluted tale to rare heights. Political skullduggery mixed with big business interests,MI5's race to find the perpetrators and personal issues giving colour and shade to the story made this a wonderful listen. Highly recommend.

An interesting story and the narration was excellent except for the incorrect pronunciation of some of Greek names, which was very irritating.

As this has been made into a film I am obviously in the minority in disliking it, and perhaps I am wrong to offer criticism as I just could not finish it. It delves into the depths of one persons lack of self esteem being manipulated by a selfish friend, in the guise of a love story.

This isn't just an interesting story, it is filled with wonderful descriptions, and insights into the Japanese culture, way of thinking. I could not stop listening to it, yet did not want it to end.

Everyone's taste is different, so I normally hesitate to offer my personal view, but I was so disappointed with this book I felt compelled to comment.
I would not detract from the narration, which is excellent, but as to the book.

The author demonstrates an ability to transport you to the various locations, and create an empathy with his characters.. So why then does he use a hackneyed storyline - interpersed with platitudes and sophistry and an ending reminscent of a rock stars take on an LSD trip.
