Publisher's Summary

Tom Ripley detested murder. Unless it was absolutely necessary. If possible, he preferred someone else to do the dirty work. In this case someone with no criminal record, who would commit 'two simple murders' for a very generous fee....

awful performance

What disappointed you about Ripley's Game?

Anyone who knows Highsmith's particular style - her gradual build-up of suspense and tension - would be looking forward to another appearance of Tom Ripley. Unfortunately I did not get past the first hour of this audiobook: the reader put me off. He is unable to lend a credible voice to female characters and manages to produce a peculiarly dull version of what should be an intriguing beginning. The book starts off in France so this would have required a reader who can at least pronounce a few French words, but there are an astonishing number of howlers and mispronounciations here. I'm afraid I lost patience and switched to the conventional book. A really poor performance.

What will your next listen be?

The Goldfinch, by Donna Tart.

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Brooke’s performances?

Not if I can help it.

What character would you cut from Ripley's Game?

The reader.

Any additional comments?

Poor performance spoils the story.

Brilliant!

The story is brilliant. I just couldn't stop listening, and the performance is great as well. Every character is spoken differently, and it works perfectly. Loved it, got book three straight away!
