Publisher's Summary

Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary, but Logan Mountstuart's - lived from the beginning to the end of the 20th century - contains more than its fair share of both. As a writer who finds inspiration with Hemingway in Paris and Virginia Woolf in London, as a spy recruited by Ian Fleming and betrayed in the war and as an art-dealer in '60s New York, Logan mixes with the movers and shakers of his times. But as a son, friend, lover and husband, he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness. Here, then, is the story of a life lived to the full - and a journey deep into a very human heart.

A fabulous book

What made the experience of listening to Any Human Heart the most enjoyable?

The story is just wonderful, the writing is terrific, the characters are rich.

What other book might you compare Any Human Heart to and why?

Forrest Gump, in that real characters interact with the protagonist. But this is an English book, through and through.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I am a very fussy listener, and I'd give this narration 3 out of 5. Perhaps a younger narrator would have been better for the earlier part of the book.

If you could take any character from Any Human Heart out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Logan Mountstuart, the lead. He's funny, smart, complex and flawed - just as a good lead character should be.

Any additional comments?

This is such a satisfying read, and for me, a great introduction to a writer who is now on my "must read" list. I can't recommend it highly enough. And once you've read it, take a look at the glorious TV series of the same name starring Matthew McFadyen and Jim Broadbent. I'm sure I'll revisit both the book and the show over the coming years, they're that good.
