Inhaltsangabe

Penguin presents, the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of The Course of Love by Alain de Botton, read by Julian Rhind-Tutt.

Twenty years after his best-selling debut, Essays in Love, internationally acclaimed author Alain de Botton returns to fiction with a brilliant new novel about modern relationships.

What does it mean to live happily ever after?

At dinner parties and over coffee, Rabih and Kirsten's friends always ask them the same question: how did you meet? The answer comes easily - it's a happy story, one they both love to tell. But there is a second part to this story, the answer to a question their friends never ask: what happened next?

Rabih and Kirsten find each other, fall in love, get married. Society tells us this is the end of the story. In fact it is only the beginning. From the first thrill of lust to the joys and fears of real commitment to the deep problems that surface slowly over two shared lifetimes, this is the story of a marriage. It is the story of modern relationships and how to survive them.

Playful, wise and profoundly moving, The Course of Love is a delightful return to the novel by Alain de Botton, 20 years after his debut, Essays in Love.

Alain de Botton dearly missed as speaker

Haben Sie die Zeit genossen, in der Sie dieses Hörbuch gehört haben? Warum oder warum nicht?

What I truly enjoy about Alain de Botton speaking is his voice and content belonging together in a beautiful way...captivating. Hearing somebody else speaking the text, I notice my mind wandering off. The speaker sounds (to my ears) a bit like Sir Ken Robinson whose topics are obviously different from Alain de Botton's. The text loses completely in appeal for me.

A book about love and life

From first adolescent emotional stirs to a mature marriage and everything in between... this book is a treatise of love. The author tries to cover many situations that can occur in a relationship, maybe a bit too meticulously so. The book is rich in wise and witty insights, in is a book about being human as much as it is about being in love. I recognized many thoughts from the videos of The School of Life. I very much enjoyed the book and recommend it.

Everyone should listen this book

Married or single, at the start of life or already a little wiser, I reckon everyone can find something in this book. The combination of generic advice with the fictional story of an actual couple sheds light on all our lifes. It reveals that strivint for perfect is likely an illusion. There‘s no proof of course, but it‘s probably as good an explanation of life and relationships as there is.

Lovely book

Although I found the beginning a bit strange at points, later on I really loved this book. It presents and analyses everyday problems and struggles that everyone has in their relationships or with themselves in a rational but also quite philosophical way and gives a new perspective to see things.

How love unfolds in the course of a lifetime

Wonderful book to ponder on the meaning of love with the figures involved. Had so much fun listening to it, while driving, cooking etc.
