What the Critics Say

"Ripley, amoral, hedonistic, and charming, is a genuinely original creation." (Daily Telegraph)
"Precisely plotted, stylishly written, and kept alert by an icy wit. Streets ahead of the conventional thriller: a cool little classic of its kind." (Evening Standard)

Interesting

Enjoyed the story but do have some mixed feelings as I struggled to empathise with Mr Ripley most of the time, but I suppose that's the whole point of the book.
The narration is excellent and really made the story come alive.

A real page turner

Very entertaining, the time just flew by.
It was very interesting seeing the world through the eyes of Tom Ripley. I disposed on one level but also quite liked him on another.
It was such a good listen I may now check out the next Ripley book.
