Description

Cyril Avery is not a real Avery, or at least that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from - and, over his three score years and ten, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country and much more. 

In this, Boyne's most transcendent work to date, we are shown the story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man. The Heart's Invisible Furies is a novel to make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit.

An intriguing story of human resilience

The author, John Boyne, wrote this intriguing story with a good deal of Irish humour, and a touch of class which I believe is achievable only when someone writes from their personal experience! I wont give a synopsis of the story itself - there are plenty to choose from. However, I thoroughly enjoyed the audio book despite being a little sceptical about the subject matter to start. The author has developed deep characters which resonate well with the story, and he provides some dark satire on some of Ireland and humanities worst characteristics across a spectrum of history, and also provides an inspirational story of resilience and ultimately long awaited happiness. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and will certainly listen/read more from this author. The performance was outstanding and the characters were well defined with brilliant accents and good timing on the humour too! #IrishHumour #Multigenerational #Witty #Funny #SelfDiscovery #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

My favourite 2017 so far

Wonderful story spanning over a life time - a sorry time for Ireland, a story told with love and wit and read in a way that matches the content.

Highly recommended

An achingly beautiful book. What a story and what sadness and joy. It was read with such compassion and care. John Boyne is a master and never disappoints his reader.

Absolutely wonderful

I loved this book and read it quickly despite its length. The narrator is excellent and the story was so engaging, funny and just heartbreaking at times. This book will stay with me for a long time and I am recommending it to all my book-loving friends!

My favourite book of 2018

I am devastated that this book is finished, I live every word of it! The narrator in the Audible version is brilliant and his beautiful lilting Irish accent really brings the story to life.

Laughed out loud and cried my eyes out

Fantastic, could not stop listening. Totally addictive. I was sad when it finished . But alas all good things must come to an end. Can’t recommend this highly enough.

An unrxpected gem

An unexpected tender, insightful revelation of human frailty; our betrayals, our heartbreaks and our capacity for love, vengeance and forgiveness. What a find and well worth a credit.
