Brideshead Revisited

Post by Beebub » Tue Nov 30, 2010 11:42 am

Anyone read this?

I have recently taken to cycling to work and I have found audio books an excellent way to pass the time on the bike. I saw the BBC adaptation of this many years ago, but had largely forgotten it. It's really a very engaging book. I read (admittedly on Wikipedia) that Waugh was a conservative Catholic. He writes very well of the thoughts of an athiest. The protaganist in this is an atheist and a sizeable section of the book is given over to his thoughts on religion and the hypocrasy of the Catholic church.

Anyway, I recommend it.

I use them in the car for my kids. They are great!
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

i've done some reading on it since and it appears I got the wrong end of the stick. It's a bout redemption as all the main characters finally find it in the catholic church! Either way, it was most enjoyable.

I read the book many moons ago and I remember enjoying it a lot.

I am a huge fan of audio books and regularly listen to them when I am in the car or when I go for a jog. I must have 20 or so at this point.
