Narrator Richard Morant portrays protagonist Tony Webster with grace and verve. A British man of a certain age, Tony reflects candidly on his youth and uses recollections of friends and lovers lost to examine his own progress as an individual. Morant’s crisp, efficient accent emphasizes Tony’s reserve, his natural tendency to keep things orderly and appropriate. While relatively brief, this audiobook is immediately engaging and feels like a complete, albeit concise, examination of a life lived somewhat at arm’s length. Tony watches people come and go in his life, loving them without necessarily connecting with them, and the listener can’t help but empathize with this likable, circumspect hero as he traces his life’s journey.
