FREE From Audible.com


Here's a tip from the Audiobooks group on Goodreads that I simply must share:

The End of the Affair by Graham Green, narrated by Colin Firth is available free through this link.

Be sure to use the above link. If you click through the audible homepage, the regular price is listed. You may need to be have an audible.com membership to take advantage of this offer, and it appears to be available to US listeners only.

I just downloaded my free copy of The End of the Affair. Let me know if it works for you.

  1. Holy cow. Well, I was not the biggest fan of this book, but with Colin Firth reading it? You have me rethinking everything.

    1. Sandy - I read this about ten year ago with my book club and didn't love it, but I adore Colin Firth's voice! Maybe it will be better on audio...

  2. cool! you just need to have an amazon account, as audible is actually part of amazon. I just took part in a read-along of this book, so I would be curious to listen to Colin on this. see our questions and answers on this book: http://wordsandpeace.com/2012/08/01/the-end-of-the-affair-august-read-along/

    1. Staci - You're welcome! It's been on my wish list since the second it was released, too, so this offer really needed to be shared! If the first few minutes are any indication, we're all going to love it :-)

  4. Ooooh, baby. Sorry, that was shallow of me. I know this will be a very enriching literary experience. :)
    I have a lapsed Audible membership -- in other words, I'm not paying the monthly fee anymore) but I still have an "account" so it worked for me. Thank you so much for letting us know!

    1. Audrey -I'm afraid Colin Firth brings out the shallowness in all of us... any enriching literary experience is purely coincidental ;-) So glad you were able to take advantage of this offer!

  9. Oh, no, I can't get it, but it would be fantastic... I love Greene, End of The Affair is one of my favorites, mostly due to Green's writing. I'm reading Heart of The Matter now and enjoying not so much what he tells, but rather how he tells it.

    1. Ivana - I am appreciating Greene much more this time around... wonder if it has something to do with Colin Firth? ;-)

  13. I was more than happy to PAY for this -- I can only say that if it's free, everyone should jump on it. One of my favorite audios ever!

    1. Col - Had a feeling this might be tough for those who had already paid for the audio. I listened to it on the train this weekend - Colin Firth is amazing!

  15. Oh no, still for U.S. only!? I was given this as a Mother's Day gift by my son, only to learn that I couldn't have it when I went on to Audible. Don't know how much longer I can wait...

  17. I like Colin Firth as well but sadly the download would not work for me, I did try. A copyright issue.
