    Description

    Brought to you by Penguin. 

    What a thing of wonder a mobile phone is. Six ounces of metal, glass and plastic, fashioned into a sleek, shiny, precious object. At once, a gateway to other worlds - and a treacherous weapon in the hands of the unwary, the unwitting, the inept.

    The Cleverley family live a gilded life, little realising how precarious their privilege is, just one tweet away from disaster. George, the patriarch, is a stalwart of television interviewing, a 'national treasure' (his words); his wife, Beverley, a celebrated novelist (although not as celebrated as she would like); and their children, Nelson, Elizabeth, Achilles, various degrees of catastrophe waiting to happen.

    Together they will go on a journey of discovery through the Hogarthian jungle of the modern living where past presumptions count for nothing and carefully curated reputations can be destroyed in an instant. Along the way, they will learn how volatile, how outraged, how unforgiving the world can be when you step from the proscribed path.

    Powered by John Boyne's characteristic humour and razor-sharp observation, The Echo Chamber is a satiric helter skelter, a dizzying downward spiral of action and consequence, poised somewhere between farce, absurdity and oblivion. To err is maybe to be human but to really foul things up you only need a phone.

    Delicious, Witty, Hysterical!!

    The Echo Chamber is positively brilliant!

    This is a tongue-in-cheek, laugh-out-loud listen, narrated to perfection. Focused on a family of five, John Boyne's satire on 'wokeness' and the social media addiction that paralyzes London (everywhere really), is genius! Mom, Dad, two sons and a daughter are all affected by various forms of the need to not be themselves, and appear favourable to the world. Their biggest fear- being 'cancelled.'

    If you listen to just one book this year, this should be it. I can't even put into words how much I enjoyed The Echo Chamber, and I definitely have a new favourite author.

    Bravo!!

    Great - couldn't stop laughing! Boyne sums up how nuts our society has become

    On point and hilarious. Narration was perfect and had a wide range of cast to portray .
    Loved the story about this crazy family, blessed with fortune but no common sense shame.

    Relevant and a Great Read

    I found myself laughing and enjoying this read so much. Richard Grant is so wonderful to listen to and I haven't had this much fun reading in such a while. Thank you, J Boyne!

    A good laugh

    This audiobook was a fun listen, and Richard E. Grant’s narration was excellent! His characterizations show off the humor in this book perfectly.
    If the strength of this audiobook is the humor, the weakness would be the lack of like-able characters, but this is intentional. The tortoise was probably my favorite character lol.

    Missed the Mark

    Wry and funny social commentary but the story became tedious for me. The Cleverly family members are a shallow bunch and I found it hard to maintain interest in the plot and their fates. John Boyne is a terrific writer but this one fell short for me. Richard Grant did a wonderful job as narrator.

    Nope. Sorry.

    The interesting threads and ideas are overwhelmed by the slapstick - an experience intensified by the exaggerated accents used for many of the characters. Disappointing.

    good fun, poignant social commentary, great narrat

    Fun and entertaining. Really enjoyed listening to it. Sharp social commentary told through a very fluffy storyline... filled with people I don't know from my own world, at all! I definitely enjoyed it more after listening to an interview with John Boyne about his experience being lambasted in the social media following his book 'My Brother's Name is Jessica'. The context gave this story, The Echo Chamber, a much deeper resonance for me. Richard E Grant is an EXCELLENT narrator, now firmly in my top 3 (maybe top 2).

    Wonderful!

    Brilliant satire, and laugh-out-loud funny! Richard E Grant is a wonderful narrator and brings all the characters to life.

    Irreverent Satire at its best

    I seldom laugh out loud while reading or listening to books. I found this incredibly funny and, for once, actually enjoyed not liking the characters. Such a ghastly family showing us the pros and dangers of social media in these crazy times we live in. Loved it!

    Cleverly Written

    John Boyne tackles many subjects in his writing and this time he dissects the world of social media with his keen insights and biting wit! Boyne exposes the toxicity of cancel culture in this hilarious romp that is nearly 15 hours long but leaves you wanting more.

    Richard E Grant is perfect for this book and delivers a stellar performance.
