Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 CJ - Secret Charm | 2/16/2014

    " A love story that is doomed from the start, just when you have hope, reality sets in and responsibilities to the places and people you care about trump all. At turns beautiful and heartbreaking, this is a Faulks novel to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 2/8/2014

    " This didn't get as much buzz as Faulks other books, but I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dona Matthews | 1/12/2014

    " imperfectly written-- moments of brilliant insight into people's motivations, inner lives, and self-destructive behaviours, and some sloppy writing that feels as if it was impatiently done with insufficent thought or editing; some interesting observations of english perceptions of americans, and vice versa "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 1/4/2014

    " Very gripping, really makes you think about what love is and how we choose our relationships and how these proclivities are formed by our experience of growing up and loss "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Buff | 12/9/2013

    " Story not in the same league as "Charlotte Gray" or "Birdsong" or "The Girl at the Lion D'Or". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bettie | 11/23/2013

    " Unabridged unfortunately - a synopsis would have served better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 11/16/2013

    " Set in the early 60s, Mary loves two men, her husband and her journalist boyfriend. After she finds herself in Moscow, she must determine whether to leave her husband and stick with the boyfriend or not. Interesting book with well-drawn characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 9/25/2013

    " If you like Mad Men you will love this novel. It has a very elegiac ending which you will think about for a long time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick | 9/17/2013

    " I liked this a little less, and for different reasons, than his books set during the wars. The characters are a bit earnest (including the earnestly self-destructive diplomat), and the portrait of the era was interesting, if not consuming. An enjoyable read, but not memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shayla | 9/9/2013

    " Eh...it was fine. I felt bad for all parties involved in this complicated love triangle. I think Faulks tried to make the romance more interesting by setting it in a transitory time period in American history, but it wasn't enough to make me feel really attached to either of the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mew | 7/31/2013

    " I enjoyed the process of reading this up to the last few pages but then it lacked something. It was as though the story never really got going. A little disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 11/15/2012

    " I couldn't finish this. From the self-centered characters to the slow-paced plot, I found nothing about this book enjoyable. I loved Birdsong and Charlotte Grey but I really couldn't get through this "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 9/20/2012

    " It's all about the romance! Sebastian Faulks crafts an interesting historical backdrop, however, the wonderfully written characters in complex relationships is what it's really all about! Steven Crossley's narration is spot on. A wonderfully absorbing read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn Schofield | 4/4/2012

    " A tale of adultery and alcohol abuse in America in 1959. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 4/1/2012

    " one of my favourite books "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bex | 2/3/2012

    " I can't remember if I have read other Sebastian Faulks but this one is a very well crafted novel. Set in Washington and New York (mostly) in the 1960s just as Kennedy is coming to power with the beginning of the Cold War in the background too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Isobel | 9/2/2011

    " Fairly basic plot but interesting setting. Some aspects of both male characters left unresolved. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erssie | 8/25/2011

    " Not my favourite Faulks but OK. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janis Harrington | 8/18/2011

    " I love Sebastian Faulks. This book captures ill-fated love in New York City in the 1950s "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 8/1/2011

    " Enjoyed reading, liked the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claire Elwood | 6/23/2011

    " Beautiful writing, interesting love story, but not my favourite Faulks "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Venuskitten | 5/13/2011

    " Mary drifts into an affair with Frank, a journalist covering the Nixon/Kennedy election whillst ignoring or being oblivious to her husband's increasing dependence on alcohol and ultimately has to choose between her family in England and her lover in America. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 4/29/2011

    " Read this ages ago and it really annoyed me. I just couldn't believe in her as a person - she seemed more like a man's daydream. Loved the jazz though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie | 1/12/2011

    " one of my favorite books in a long time "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mosunflower | 9/3/2010

    " Interesting time-period, but the characters are not very likable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheri | 8/15/2010

    " interesting look at that era around JFK election, all the drinking and cigarettes. Left me quite sad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 1/17/2010

    " This didn't get as much buzz as Faulks other books, but I loved it. "
