This is one of the defining novels of English writer Julian Barnes. An entertaining melange of stories, starting with a contemporary account of the launch of Noah's Ark, takes us into unexpected areas of human foibles, activities, and tendencies.

After success with the main novels of Haruki Murakami, Naxos AudioBooks turns its attention to other major literary works of recent times.

    " The chapters are not interrelated and as a result a bad chapter does not affect another one. I'd say half the book's chapters are gold (very original some of them, such as a new version of heaven and the story of Noah and the ark as told by a termite). Worth a read but take my advice and if you don't like a chapter, skip it. "

    " I knew from the beginning that Julian Barnes is going to be one of my favorite writers. His sense of humor and skepticism towards human civilization and the history kind of overturn my stereotyped views on the world. "

    " I was pretty disappointed in this. It's a story of short stories, loosely held together by variations on a theme. Some of the chapters/short stories were really interesting and some were incredibly slow. "

    " I honestly don't remember much about this book. I do remember parts seemed tedious, clunky, and slow moving. I don't think I was in the right mindset to be reading it at the time. I still have it sitting on my bookshelf and may revisit it again in the future to give it more of a fair shot. "
