Description

The Pope is dead.

Behind the locked doors of the Sistine Chapel, 118 cardinals from all over the globe will cast their votes in the world's most secretive election. They are holy men. But they have ambition. And they have rivals.

Over the next 72 hours, one of them will become the most powerful spiritual figure on earth.

Dirty doings at the Vatican

I've enjoyed nearly all of Harris's novels, especially 'Pompeii', though I found the Cicero trilogy very tedious and gave up halfway through. 'Conclave' deals in minute detail with the election of a new Pope, plus a mildly thriller type plot. As usual, Harris has done his research and provides plenty of twists and turns to his plot, though for the reader who is not a Roman Catholic, and takes little interest in the Pope or the Church's internal affairs, the reaction might well be 'Does it really matter, and why should I care?' It's hard to give any more details of the story without committing some serious spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. It did strike me that the current outrage at the sins of the Vatican, covered-up child abuse, is given a very easy ride; in fact it hardly figures at all. No, not one of my favourites. The reader is excellent.

Great story, well written and well read

Would you listen to Conclave again? Why?

Yes, mostly cause I fell asleep during one passage, but also because the book is so good

Who was your favorite character and why?

None in particular, all were realistic and well defined

What does Roy Mcmillan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Good pace, subtle changes in accent, great pronunciation

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I did

Any additional comments?

Unusual book, well worth the credit

Good "read" (listen).. but!

Excellent book with great detail and plenty of political intrigue within the Vatican. Narrator superb. Unfortunately, the ending was too contrived and brought me down with a bump!!

Engrossing


Roy Mcmillon (McMillan?) read very well and matches the tone of this story.
Robert Harris writes well.

I found this book almost as good as 'The Ghost', that Robert Harris wrote some years ago.

Our Dean, in telling his own story is an exact and very likeable person who begins to take a few risks and moves away from his established comfort zone in order to do his 'job' well.
Do not expect 'leaping over tall buildings' or 'spy vs spy' or contrived plots. You as reader or listener may guess the outcome and it really does not spoil the story at all. Another story you may find is about a man we only meet as a corpse. There is an absence perhaps of the high drama of Harris's Cicero trilogy and for me 'Conclave' remains compelling.
If you have already read and enjoyed Harris's other books and wonder how the election of a Pope could stand up to his other works, my only response is 'this book is well worth your credit and your time'.

Schönes Hörbuch

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Conclave gefallen?

Der Aufbau der Geschichte inklusive der unerwarteten Wendungen.

Welcher Moment von Conclave ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Sicherlich sind hier die Beschreibungen der Wahlvorgänge zum neuen Papst zu nennen und die zum Teil sehr unerwarteten Stimmungsänderungen

Welche Figur hat Roy Mcmillan Ihrer Meinung nach am besten interpretiert?

Kardinal Lomelli

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

ja

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Man sollte ein Intersse an den Vorgängen im Vatikan haben.

Tolle Story... bescheuerter Schluss

Spannendes, interessantes Hörbuch. Fast in einem Zug durchgehört. Für den Schluss gibt es Punktabzug. Klasse und glaubwürdig... bis zum letzten Kapitel. Da blieb bei mir nur der Eindruck einer vertanen Chance und irritiertes Kopfschütteln.

A great read!

Suspenseful till the very last page! A great read! Lots of interesting background information about the Vatican and the conclave. And the ending really took me by surprise. I recommend it highly!

A little stunned...

...by this novel - "read" most of it on audible.de while driving (brilliantly read by Roy McMillan) & in the end I had to hurry through the last 40 pages because of the unbearable suspense. But there's more than tension - there's a trinity here: terror, tradition and tolerance are summoned supremely. The end is wholly unexpected - unguessable but not impossible.

Ein weiterer guter Robert Harris

Wie immer wird man bei Robert Harris nicht enttäuscht.
Dieses Mal geht es um ein "Gedankenspiel" was wohl passieren würde, wenn der derzeitige Papst Franziskus (der im Buch anders heißt) stirbt.
Sehr schön und detailliert sind die Zusammenhänge zwischen den verschiedenen Einflußfaktoren während einer Papstwahl beschrieben.
Spannend bis zum Schluß.

langweiliger als die Landtagswahl.....

das groß und geheimnislüftend angespriesene Buch erwies sich als eine, in meinen Augen, im Grunde langweilige Geschichte, mit einem kleinen Höhepunkt. Welcher war das nochmals?.....hab's vergessen...bin vorher eingschlafen....da half auch der gute Vorleser nicht......
