Didn't know what to expect, other than great narration as it was read by Sean Barrett. Even though I've listened to a lot of books narrated by Sean Barrett, I was surprised to find that he seems to have found yet another new voice for this book. His wonderful narration suits the beautiful language of this book.
It's not the story so much, as the beauty of the prose, the sensual descriptions and the vivid characterisations that I really enjoyed. I'm sure I wouldn't have got the same enjoyment if I'd read the book myself.
As soon as I'd finished listening, I started it again, and I listen to snippets as a treat alongside other books.
And, just like Grenouille who lives in fear of never experiencing a certain smell again, I find myself afraid that one day I won't be able to listen to this audiobook any more.

This is probably one of the best books that I have ever read/listened to. It enthralls you from the very beginning. It takes you down a dark road and makes you experience the world in a totally different way. The characters are well thought out. The story flows and the performer Sean Barrett is exceptionally talented. He brings life to the characters, you can "see" them, or more importantly, you can smell them.
Thank you for providing such a wonderful work of literature.
a classic, a must, an excellent story to begin reading or listen to. Do enjoy.
