Description

Nutshell is a classic story of murder and deceit, told by a narrator with a perspective and voice unlike any in recent literature. A bravura performance, it is the finest recent work from a true master.

To be bound in a nutshell, see the world in two inches of ivory, in a grain of sand. Why not, when all of literature, all of art, of human endeavour, is just a speck in the universe of possible things?

©2016 Ian McEwan (P)2016 Random House Audiobooks

Hilarious, thrilling story

What a blast! A terrifically funny and thrilling murder story, told by an unforgettable narrator. One of the most entertaining books I've read in quite some time: this is Ian McEwan at his mischievous, exuberant best.

"a lucky beach"

Bless me! Here is Rory Kinnear reading Ian McEwan

I have only enjoyed language as much as I have this, with my first reading of Virginia Wolf.

We read or listen for all sorts of reasons. I am 'catching up' on all those decades when I had to get up for work in the morning. Taste does change and still some books can only be read in hard copy to be slowly enjoyed like Nabakov and. I had begun to think like Virginia Wolf. And Ian McEwan.
My choice of genre ranges far and wide and at times takes huge leaps of hope in choosing an audiobook.
Here we have Ian McEwan being read on audio by Rory Kinnear
Delight.

I will have to find a hard copy though to learn if Ian M wanted a 'bow' to mean a pretty knot or a masculine curtsy. Such (maybe small) things pull up my blissful enjoyment of both story and words being read with so easy a voice.

An classic story with a new perspective.

Nutshell has a very interesting premise - It’s a novel narrated from the womb by a soon-to-be-born, highly articulate protagonist. Unique? Quite possibly. Engaging from the outset? Absolutely. It’s a story about relationships between unborn child and mother, and a tangled web of lies and deception. Based on a classic, to say more would be to give the game away, and this is a story where you’ll enjoy the journey as the narrative unfolds. The narrator (Rory Kinnear) is well-chosen, and brings life to all the characters. His voicing of the protagonist’s inner thoughts effortlessly flips from the urbane to those driven by juvenile desire and focus. An excellent characterisation of such an unusual protagonist. If I had one thing to state in criticism, the novel was a touch too long than it needed to be, however, I did enjoy listening to it, and would recommend it to anyone after a highly literary listen with an usual perspective at its core.

Great performance, reader and author well matched.

My wife and I listened in the car during a long drive. We both loved it. Very erudite. Highly recommended especially if you like wine tasting. The nutshell perspective works brilliantly.

Riveting perspective on the plotting of a murder!

Having a fully conscious as-yet-unborn baby provide the first person perspective on the plotting of a murder, is absolutely unique. Definitely my book recommendation for this month!

Both the writer and the narrator have done a great job.

Mordzeuge im Mutterbauch

Aus dem Mutterbauch heraus lässt Ian McEwan seinen Erzähler Zeuge eines perfiden Mordplans an dessen eigenem Vater werden. Die Geschichte kennen wir als Grundkonstellation aus „Hamlet“. Die Perspektive ist ebenso tückisch wie interessant; der Erzähler ein abstraktes Experiment, teils gelungen, teils nicht. Sprachlich ist das alles gut zu goutieren. Ja, „Nutshell“ ist sicher nicht perfekt. Aber hier traut sich ein Schriftsteller etwas Neues, und es ist allemal interessant, ihm dabei zu folgen.

Zum Sprecher:
Rory Kinnear? Doch, ihr kennt ihn. Seit „Ein Quantum Trost“ verkörpert er in den James Bond-Filmen M’s Assistenten Bill Tanner. Außerdem hat er eine feste Rolle in „Penny Dreadful“. Der ausgebildete Theatermime hat eine erwartungsgemäß geformte Stimme und Aussprache. In „Nutshell“ entspricht er dem literarischen Sprechertyp: er wahrt Distanz, wirkt intellektuell statt emotional. Das ist etwas eintönig, passt aber zum verkopften Text.

Read it, heard it, loved it!

McEwan‘s Sprachgewalt ist fliessend, murmelnd, schmeichelnd, donnernd, immer mitreissend und stellenweise urkomisch. Diese Wortgewalt vorgelesen zu bekommen von Rory Kinnear ist ein besonderes Vergnügen. Ich kann dieses Buch/Hörbuch sehr empfehlen!

Delightful!!

Dry, wicked and funny. I love all of Ian McEwan's work and this felt like it was kind of a new style for him.

Simple crime plot with a special perspective

A man, a woman, and a certain third party involved. Plus a fourth. The unborn.
