Summary

This is the final volume of The Cazalet Chronicle, the quartet of novels chronicling the lives of a British family before, during, and after the Second World War. VE Day has been celebrated, but the war with Japan goes on. Polly, Clary, and Louise are grown up, discovering loneliness, loss, and passion. Rupert, missing in France for so long, returns to find Zoe curiously withdrawn; Edward will be forced to choose between wife and mistress; Hugh must finally accept Sybil's death. Casting Off shows us the lives of these individuals, but also gives us a panoramic view of what was happening in England during the crucial post-war period.

Fabulous

Without a doubt this series is the best I've listened to in a very long time - Jill Balcon's sympathetic reading brings all the characters to life. We have followed their fortunes throughout the four books, and as the series winds down, we are sad to realize that this is the last book and we have to say goodbye, but are also delighted at the skill and emotional balance of this superb story teller and emotionally charged narration.

Wonderful story, beautifully read

I have just loved every part of this story, of the whole series. It's quite hard to have finished it. It has been fascinating as the story has moved from wartime into peace and into my own experience of social history. The characterisation is excellent and it will be a while before I can leave these people behind.

Poor Sound Quality

Enjoyed this series so much that I put up with a soft roaring sound in the background, much like the sound of a heartbeat on sonogram.
