Excellent.

The narration of this audio book is excellent, a pleasure to listen to. The narrator has a cool voice of authority that really suits the story.
This is my first Greene novel, I had never considered reading him before but I was hooked from the opening sentence, which draws you right in. I won't say anything to spoil the story but it has a fantastic sense of doom hanging over it and you can actually feel pity for the most unlikable character.

Reputations don't come easy!

Just as in any industry, good reputations don't come easy, that's why Graham Greene has a deserved reputation as a true great.

What a book, what a story, what characters! All as thick, chunky and wholesome as my old mothers home made soup! Like her soup, this story sticks to the ribs, it draws you in, gives warmth and before you know it, your there, deep in the story running with the plot and living with the characters.

Well narrated by Samuel West. A true literary classic.

Chilling classic novel. Authetically read

Brighton Rock is a superbly chilling novel. The characters are incredibly well developed and despite the main character Pinkie being an manipulative, murderous psychopath, Greene still manages to make the reader entirely enthralled in what happens to him. The plot is enthralling and the writing style shows Greene's genius. Samuel West's reading is entirely in character and only increases the enjoyment of this remarkable novel.

Everyone involved at the top of their game.

This might be the best audiobook I've ever heard. It's almost certainly the best Greene (maybe tied with "The Third Man" but that wasn't his alone) and Samuel West does an incredible job with it.
