Testimony: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Anita Shreve

Narrated By: Hachette Assorted Authors

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: October 2008

Duration: 8 hours 28 minutes

Summary:

At a New England boarding school, a sex scandal is about to break. Even more shocking than the sexual acts themselves is the fact that they were caught on videotape.

A Pandora's box of revelations, the tape triggers a chorus of voices--those of the men, women, teenagers, and parents involved in the scandal--that details the ways in which lives can be derailed or destroyed in one foolish moment.

Writing with a pace and intensity surpassing even her own greatest work, Anita Shreve delivers in TESTIMONY a gripping emotional drama with the impact of a thriller. No one more compellingly explores the dark impulses that sway the lives of seeming innocents, the needs and fears that drive ordinary men and women into intolerable dilemmas, and the ways in which our best intentions can lead to our worst transgressions.

    Really enjoyed listening to this book, particularly with the excellent renditions by so many readers! As written - with many chapters, each one having a particular character's name and point of view (sometimes in 1st person, sometimes 2d or 3d), this would be possibly be confusing to read in print - but the expressive readings here make it flow very well. Really good story, excellent production.

    This was a hard book to listen to, and one I found personally very disturbing, but it was well-written and engaging.

    Great book!, very real and an eye opener!, I wanted to keep driving just to keep listening to it!

    I frankly find that eight disks is usually too much to listen to..... Over time that encompasses my various treks in the car, it can be frustrating not to be able to look back and check on a name or a fact. But Anita Shreve's Testimony, despite the fact that it features many characters, felt compelling throughout. I cared about the characters, and was drawn into the power of this simple drama. Featuring a cast of different voices, this is one I would recommend fairly highly to other audioreaders.....

    This is a great book. Thought provoking and especially scary to anyone with teenage children.

    Shreve is a great writer - I've loved every book of hers that I've read - but if I'd known how sad this book was I might not have started it. It's sad from the beginning to the end, and her characters are hard to get out of your mind after you've finished listening. If you're at risk of depression, maybe stay away from this one. If you're feeling emotionally resilient, then go ahead - it's an excellent book.

    I'm a fan of Anita Shreve and this book is one her best. It had me from the beginning. I usually listen to my audiobooks while driving but there were times that I had to bring it in because I couldn't wait until the morning drive.
