Audio Book Summary

A major motion picture starring Julianne Moore and Ken Watanabe.

“Blissfully romantic….A strange, terrific, spellcasting story.” — San Francisco Chronicle

“Bel Canto…should be on the list of every literate music lover. The story is riveting, the participants breathe and feel and are alive, and throughout this elegantly-told novel, music pours forth so splendidly that the reader hears it and is overwhelmed by its beauty.” —Lloyd Moss, WXQR

Ann Patchett’s award winning, New York Times bestselling Bel Canto balances themes of love and crisis as disparate characters learn that music is their only common language. As in Patchett’s other novels, including Truth & Beauty and The Magician’s Assistant, the author’s lyrical prose and lucid imagination make Bel Canto a captivating story of strength and frailty, love and imprisonment, and an inspiring tale of transcendent romance.

    Excellent narrator, one of my favourite so far. Loved how she embodied each character. I really enjoyed the book too - a unique storytelling plot that keeps you engaged.

    It was an interesting read. I liked the premise of the story. The only problem I had was it took a long time for the story and then ended abruptly. There were too many loose ends. The ending made no sense to me.

    The narration was so dull and irritating that I couldn\'t make it through the book. Also the story was slow and repetitive. The characters were not believable. Not the author\'s best work by far. Save your money or credits and listen to Ann Pachett\'s Commonwealth instead.
