I read the book and then watched the movie. Both were five-star. They don't write'em or film'em like this anymore.

Agreed! I also love both the film (I mean, come on, Edward Fox!!!) and the book, but it's been 20 years since I read it. So, a re-read was over-due!

Look forward to seeing what you think after your re-read. It's another one I picked up as an Audible daily deal, and I want to eventually watch the film, too. I'm also hoping the hubby might actually be interested in this one.

I have this as kindle and audio version, and I have to say that it is not working for me as an audiobook. I don't know why, but this is one where I zone out when listening to it. Not so with the kindle version - I'm glued to every paragraph.

Have you read this before?

Both the book and film are great.

No, I haven't. Is the narrator the problem? Simon Prebble is usually really good.

No. The narrator is great. It's the writing. It is very detailed and I keep missing bits that I don't miss when reading it.

Ah. I constantly hit the 30 sec back button on my iPod to re-listen to stuff I've missed. It's one of the drawbacks of audio. Most of the narrators I listen to are excellent at bringing the material to life, though, so going back over parts seems like a small price to pay for that experience.

I really need to reread this too. I read a lot of Forsythe in my twenties but then drifted away.

I'm almost ashamed to say that this is the only one of his books that I've read.
