Sebastian Faulks' newest audiobook is a bolt from the blue, unlike anything he has done before: contemporary, demotic, heart-wrenching, and funny in the deepest shade of black.

Bullied, savant, loner Engleby's fantasy relationship (at an un-named University that is obviously Cambridge) with the girl who has everything he doesn't, leads him into a dark spiral downwards. Flashes of observations about 70's popular culture add colour and texture to a black comedy. Beautifully written. Really superb narration.

My first foray into audiobooks and what a perfect start. To be honest I was tempted by the length of the audio as it seemed one of the less daunting, however with such an engrossing story and so wonderfully narrated I didn't want it to end. I?m now officially hooked on audiobooks and have embarked on the longer 10 hours of 'Restless' by William Boyd which although just at the half way point it has me listening at every possible opportunity. Both un-put-downable listens!
