Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Mark and the Void by Paul Murray, read by Charlie Anson.
What links the Bank of Torabundo, www.myhotswaitress.com (yes, hots with an s, don't ask), an art heist, a novel called For Love of a Clown, a four-year-old boy named after TV detective Remington Steele, a lonely French banker, a tiny Pacific island, and a pest control business run by an ex-KGB man? You've guessed it....
The Mark and the Void is a stirring examination of the deceptions carried out in the names of art, love and commerce - and is also probably the funniest novel ever written about a financial crisis.

Well read - and with patches of brilliance...

...but I was disappointed that this book did not reach the standard of Skippy Dies, which I really loved. I didn't want this book to be the same, but I did want it to be as good. In my opinion, it isn't.

The trademark dark humour is there but only in patches really; and I was not gripped by the story.

The narration was very good.

A modern day masterpiece!

Without saying too much, this was one of the most relevant, articulate, inspiring and lucid books I've ever had the pleasure of listening to.

I now know what everyone I know is getting for Christmas this year!

Superb satire on the global financial crisis

Any additional comments?

Great book and the performance by Charlie Anson was outstanding. I loved every second of this and cannot recommend it more highly. Alongside the evisceration of amoral bankers and banks, the humorous story of the relationship between Claude and Paul, supported by a cast of colourful characters such as Igor, Remmington and the literary luvvies is both funny and tragic. Definitely going to buy Paul Murray's other book, and sign up to more Charlie Anson performances.
