I just loved this book on Audi. Will listen to it again and again. Narrator perfect.
Night train to Lisbon is a journey of introspection and self awareness. Simply, Loved it.
The performance could have been better, the voice is quite soft when some characters speak
This is a book the reader will either love or despise. It never sets out even vaguely to be an action-packed page turner, so look elsewhere if that's what you want. It does sustain and push the reader on but only if approached in the right way.
Above all this is a gentle and beguiling reflection on the emotional struggles of life for those who are introspective, sharply analytical and deep-thinking. Like the subject itself it gives no answers, no conclusions and remains open-ended - just as it should to be true to its subject matter.
Readers of that disposition should find this a satisfying journey, giving voice to this type if person?s restless absorption with meaning and value. Mercier hangs these themes like prisoners within the banality of human choices made and choices squandered or rejected.
There is a great charm in the novel despite its brutally honest depiction of human fallibility and life?s futility, and it somehow manages to reaffirm rather than depress. A great book if that?s what you want!

This book is about an introspective, selfish geeky character that rambles through the latter part of his life. I found it depressing and dull, so I gave up well before the end, something I rarely do with an audiobook.
