Summary

The World at Night is an edge-of-your-seat World War II tale of intrigue and espionage, set in the shadowy back streets and glittering salons of occupied Paris. Film producer Jean Casson, a Paris sophisticate, struggles to come to terms with the uncomfortable realities of life under German occupation, as he becomes caught up in the initial actions of what was to become the French Resistance.

A solid Furst novel, just not a great one

Furst's fourth Night Soldiers' novel switches narrators to Jean Casson, a French movie producer. He is a reluctant hero who is drawn into the secret war against the Nazi occupiers of France.

With 'The World at Night', Furst is able to again relate the way WWII impacted typical Europeans in ways that most fiction and nonfiction writers who focus on Europe's second world war seem to often miss or overlook.

A solid Furst novel, just not a great one. But take that with a grain of salt. Minor Furst novels (like le Carre) are often miles better than 9/10 of the historical spy fiction out there

Brilliant story. Terrible ending!

Any additional comments?

Alan Furst is brilliant putting the listener into this era and really bringing Paris alive and making you feel like you are in Paris. What a wonderful book but what a terrible ending. Did Furst suddenly have a bus to catch? It made no sense yet the rest of the book made perfect sense. I will give Furst the benefit of the doubt and perhaps the publisher made him change the ending!
George Guidall is yet again amazing because if I hadn't been listening to him tell the story I would have never finished this book if I had been reading it.
