    Description

    Published in 1934, Tender Is the Night was one of the most talked-about books of the year. "It's amazing how excellent much of it is," Ernest Hemingway said to Maxwell Perkins. "I will say now," John O'Hara wrote Fitzgerald, "Tender Is the Night is in the early stages of being my favorite book, even more than This Side of Paradise." And Archibald MacLeish exclaimed: "Great God, Scott...You are a fine writer. Believe it - not me." Set on the French Riviera in the late 1920s, Tender Is the Night is the tragic romance of the young actress Rosemary Hoyt and the stylish American couple Dick and Nicole Diver. A brilliant young psychiatrist at the time of his marriage, Dick is both husband and doctor to Nicole, whose wealth goads him into a lifestyle not his own, and whose growing strength highlights Dick's harrowing demise. A profound study of the romantic concept of character - lyrical, expansive, and hauntingly evocative - Tender Is the Night, Mabel Dodge Luhan remarked, raised F. Scott Fitzgerald to the heights of a "modern Orpheus".

    Commentaires

    "Plummer's skill with varied voices and accents is without equal. She navigates Fitzgerald's glamorous world with panache, immersing the listener in the intense characters' personalities. The result is an entertaining production in which the narrative is as alive as the characters themselves." ( AudioFile)

    Subtle yet grand

    * If narrators are very important to you, please skip to second paragraph.

    I think I appreciated this book more after I had finished it, than I did in the process. It slides along so easily. Drifting from moment to moment in these very wealthy people's lives, between the two World Wars. Nick isn't a train wreck, that's too immediate and encompassing. He's the accumulation of choice after choice. Lost moments and poor decisions. And this privileged world that he slips into rarely holds up a mirror to his actions, or calls him to account in any way, until it's far too late. In the end, the scope and elegance of the plot is really an enormous literary achievement.

    The narrator, though perfectly fine, if a little dramatically breathless, in portraying young American women, is incredibly poor at accents. Even basic ones that I would assume anyone who thinks of themselves as an actor would be able to do a passable job at (Australian, for instance - who screws up Australian?) are beyond her capacity. I was actually shocked when it was finally mentioned that Nick was an American. I had no idea. I was pretty much able to ignore it (had to finish this book up for book club), if there's another reader out there, I'd certainly recommend giving them a go first.

    A great summer listen

    The narration is fantastic, a lovely story in a forgotten time. Characters are memorable and easy to like. Descriptions of beaches and shops draw you into the story with ease

    Was it all just the champagne

    This story struck a chord with me that made it a swell time, easy to pick up and put down. I don't speak French but you knew what was being said. You want to feel for each caracter and celebrate there victories but at the same time you remember that like in the great war no one wins you only survive.

    Performance does not support content

    The reader's tone is irritatingly arch and breathless throughout and undermines the emergence of the characters through the actual writing. I gave up and got out the book - much more satisfying

    Tender is the Night - More Fitzgerald

    Story: I found the story very Fitzgerald. Believable but difficult to feel any empathy for the characters. Their problems seem all self-induced and it is hard to pity them. What did enjoy is the backdrop of the story and travels from to and from the first location. It is another slice of life that no longer exists, good or bad.

    Reader: Very Good.

    Performance: Very Good

    Excellently performed!

    Beautifully read, the voices were amazing! The story was romantic and tragic, but not in a way that brings you down. It wasn't particularly suspenseful or exciting, but that wasn't was I was looking for anyway. A lovely read.

    Not my favourite Fitzgerald

    I didn't love it. It felt melodramatic and over written. More especially I felt the narrator entirely wrong for this period. She should stick to reading chick lit. She's a technically good narrator - apart from her icky accent work - but she added to the sense of the overblown that tended to dominate. Average only.

    Not my favorite reader

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tender Is the Night to be better than the print version?

    Definitely not better than the print version. I could not even get through 30 minutes of listening. The reading was very sing-song like and saccharine.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Therese Plummer’s performances?

    No way.

    Great Novel

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. This is a book about a life - the good, the bad, the relationships, the triumphs and the disasters. It is beautifully written and has so many phrases that stick in your memory.

    What other book might you compare Tender Is the Night to and why?

    There is no other book quite like this one. It is totally a 20th century book. Maybe the best of Henry James.

    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Yes. She managed to convey all of the emotional intensity of the pivotal moments in the story.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end of the book is as moving as literature can get.

    Any additional comments?

    Too often, Fitzgerald is thought of as a one-book author, but this book deserves to be read and re-read.

    Narrator perfection

    This would be an amazing story no matter what, but the narrator really brings it to life. She should consider an acting career (or maybe she already has one)!
