Moving from Vienna to London's West End, the battlefields of France, and hotel rooms in Geneva, Waiting for Sunrise is a feverish and mesmerising journey into the human psyche, and a beautifully observed portrait of wartime Europe.

Superb story let down by weak narrator
The print edition is better but not by much. With a more accomplished narrator it would be comparable.
The central character, who is flawed, humane and very easy to empathise with.
High pitched voice, lacked the gravitas to read the autobiographical sections as the theatrical Lysander. Otherwise a bland, effete British voice.
