Inhaltsangabe

Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked out streets, illicit liaisons, sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, The Night Watch is the work of a truly brilliant and compelling storyteller. This is the story of four Londoners, three women and a young man with a past, drawn with absolute truth and intimacy.

Kay, who drove an ambulance during the war and lived life at full throttle, now dresses in mannish clothes and wanders the streets with a restless hunger, searching; Helen, clever, sweet, much-loved, harbours a painful secret; Viv, glamour girl, is stubbornly, even foolishly loyal, to her soldier lover; Duncan, an apparent innocent, has had his own demons to fight during the war. Their lives, and their secrets connect in sometimes startling ways. War leads to strange alliances.

Tender, tragic, and beautifully poignant, set against the backdrop of feats of heroism both epic and ordinary, here is a novel of relationships that offers up subtle surprises and twists. The Night Watch is thrilling. A towering achievement.

    Ich liebe ausgefallene originelle englischsprachige Hörbücher. Fantasy und Stieg Larssen sind nicht mein Ding.

    "Slow start"

    When I started listening to part 1, I had difficulties becoming familiar with the different protagonists, as the story begins from the end and then works its way to the beginning. Anyway, I kept listening, and I really enjoyed learning more about the living conditions during and after WW2. The descriptions were well done, and captured the atmosphere very well. I found the stories about Kay, driving her ambulance, especially interesting. The reader, Juanita McMahon, did a good job, and I felt that she interpreted the story and the characters well. For me, the end of this audio book came quite abruptly, especially as I could see that another 15 minutes were left. The surprise was an interview with the author, which was enlightening. It also provided background information about her own sexual orientation, which is reflected in the lesbian relationships that are part of this book.
