Description

It is Amory's photographer uncle, Greville, who gives her a camera and some rudimentary lessons in photography and unleashes a passion that will irrevocably shape her future.

Her search for life, love and artistic expression will take her to the demimonde of Berlin of the late '20s, to New York of the '30s, to the Blackshirt riots in London and to France in the Second World War, where she becomes one of the first women war photographers.

Narrator destroys story

I am a big fan of William Boyd’s novels. Unfortunately I could not listen beyond the first few chapters. I found the narrator’s style intolerable. Others may disagree as I realize that whether one likes the narrator or not is highly subjective. However I wanted to write this incase others felt the same and Audible would be inspired to use another narrator.

Engaging and fascinating

William Boyd is an incredibly good storyteller and Jilly Bond has given the audiobook such depth with her amazing wealth of English accents. Totally engrossing. I will miss Amory Clay as if she were a good friend.

Enttäuschend

Ich bin ein Fan von William Boyd, aber dieses Buch hat mich überhaupt nicht berührt. Klischeehaft übertriebene Charaktere, von denen kein einziger lebendig wurde, klischeehafte Tour de Force durch die europäische Geschichte des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts, die üblichen Versatzstücke bewegter Lebensgeschichten von der Boarding School über die dekadenten 20er in Berlin bis zu den Fronten des 2. Weltkriegs. Die Hauptperson blieb seltsam kalt und unbelebt.
