Description

Two couples, two marriages; both seemingly perfect, both falling apart.

Beneath the surface gentility of the American John Dowell with his wife Florence and the landed grace of Edward and Leonora lie fictions and deceit. There are secret desires, hidden power-games, suicides and madness. Everyone is hiding something; even the narrator can't be trusted.

Brilliantly inventive, tragic and ironic, The Good Soldier is one of the great novels of the 20th century.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This is the (fictional) memoir of an ass. John Dowell's wife, Florence, faked a heart ailment so that she could remain at a German spa where, under John's very nose, she conducted a nine-year affair with John's pal, Captain Edward Ashburton. At last, Florence downed a lethal poison, and Edward cut his own throat, leaving John to stew perplexedly over what he calls "the saddest story I have ever heard." Published in 1915, this intricately woven classic has garnered widespread critical acclaim. Versatile narrator Kerry Shale well understands its tone, atmosphere, and subtext, as well as the character and crisis of its narrator/antihero. Yet he often seems to rush, thereby weakening important moments. He uses only a small vocal range, which, together with his pace, makes some passages monotonous. Y.R.
