The novel explores the themes of religious confusion and God's grace.

Well-written and kept my interest. The characters were realistic, but I couldn't really care about any of them. Guess I've listened to too many books about the idle rich in England. The narration by Jeremy Irons was wonderful. Great actors make great audio book readers!

This is an interesting look into the life of an English college student in the pre-WW2 era and is easy to follow.

This is it - Jeremy Irons reads to YOU! And he reads Birdeshead Revisited which he starred in BBC adaptation - very very good!!
5***** audio book - just listen!
Does anyone else listen to audiobooks?? If they do they don't write comments!!! Maybe all booktapes addicts have no fingers??? Lucky I do!
Is there a forum for "book tape" addicts - why read when you can have it read to you???
Why not have Jeremy Irons read you Brideshaed Reviisted?? Evelyn Waugh is not "easy" but listening to this is really easy!!!
