Publisher's Summary

Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, meets his septuagenarian Aunt Augusta for the first time in over 50 years at his mother’s funeral. Soon after, she persuades Henry to abandon South wood, his dahlias and the Major next door to travel through Brighton, Paris, Istanbul, Paraguay...
Accompanying his aunt, Henry joins a shiftless, twilight society: mixing with hippies, war criminals and CIA men, as well as smoking pot, breaking all the currency regulations and eventually coming alive after a dull suburban life.

More please!

I've read this book many times, it being a personal favourite so I wasn't sure whether hearing it as well would add anything but I was wrong: Tim Piggott-Smith brought it all to life. I didn't want it to end. I'll be listening to this one again.

greene's worst novel?

I have read almost everything by Greene, most of it on Audiobooks, but this one severely taxed my patience. Greene seems to have padded this out ad nauseum, and if this is an attempt to write a "comic" novel, it fails wretchedly. Avoid this one like the plague --and read as many of the other Greenes as you can get your hands on--especially as Audiobooks, all of which are beautifully read.

Hugely entertaining

I am never quite sure how Graham Greene came to write this wonderfully funny novel, given the tone of all the other novels he produced. All wonderful of course, but not known for their humour! Tim Pigott Smith's reading is superb, especially the wonderful Wordsworth, although there were times when I wished I want Aunt Agatha sounded slightly less like Lady Bracknell. A beautifully written novel beautifully read.

Funny & entertaining! Brilliantly read!

Would you consider the audio edition of Travels with My Aunt to be better than the print version?

Tim Pigott-Smith brings every character to life and does a superb job at making this lovely book even more funny and entertaining!

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed Out loud!

Excellent narration of a well-told story

Travels with My Aunt is a humerous, touching, and very human account performed remarkably well by Tim Piggott-Smith! Reminds a bit of My Uncle Oswald, but it is so much better (in my opinion)
