Would you listen to Folly again? Why?
Always nice to listen to Alan reading his own books
What did you like best about this story?
The way it switched from the past to the present; two stories in one
What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His relaxed style and the fondness for his characters. He really sounds as though he likes these people and forgives their foibles
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
yes, but to say what it was would be a spoiler - good thing I had tissues in the car
Any additional comments?
Never been a book of Alan's that I haven't liked. They are always charming.
Set in two time scales, Folly was fairly easy to follow although it did jump about a lot and I would have liked each bit to be developed more before
jumping time frames again, but I think this was due to the abridgement.
Even so, things I liked about Folly; it was a 'page turner', I liked that quality to it. The insights into the art world and art dealing (and even fiddling) were entertaining. It had some humour in it as well. Also the main characters were likeable. And although I thought the final twist let it down, I like a happy ending and this did have one!
