Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in art and artists. It completely contradicts the popular Hollywood version of Van Gogh.
What did you like best about this story?
His amazing skills as a writer. When he describes a scene it's a vivid as his art.
What does Clive Chafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
As these are letters written by Van Gogh the performance isn't really important.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Interesting from an art history perspective, and to witness the thinking of Van Gogh.
What didn’t you like about Clive Chafer’s performance?
Almost a complete monotone all the way through. I am pretty sure that Vincent Van Gogh was a very passionate man, but the entire book was read in a near monotone. It was so excruciating to listen to that I put it down for months at a time.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dear Theo?
No scenes - these are his letters to his brother, so no editing. I would select a more passionate narrator.
Any additional comments?
Read the book on your own. This narrator is awful!
