“I thought it was you I saw coming up the hill,” she said, stretching out her hand.

He stopped and shook it; the touch of his big, firm fingers made her tremble. His hand was massive and hard as if it were hewn of stone. She looked up at him and smiled.

“Isn’t it cold?” she said. It is terrible to be desirous of saying all sorts of passionate things, while convention debars you from any but the most commonplace. (Excerpts from chapter 1.)

Excellent character analysis about what happens when a passionate, emotional person falls in love with a person's beauty and does not wait long enough to find out that this person is her opposite: unemotional, objective, and incapable of strong passion. But there are also many other differences between them, as if this is not enough.

One of my favorite narrators

I learned to like Mr. Oliva. Now, I'm listening to his recordings. I like his mysteries but these others are too depressing. My life is depressing enough. I may give a few more. Maybe.

love overload

(3 stars)

The woman was seeking love in absurd amounts. It became monotonous. But the reader was really great to listen to!

Excellent reading. It's incredible how Maugham captures the feminine soul.

Very Enjoyable. The reader's narrating was visceral.
