For the first time, an audio production is available of Michael Cunningham's critically acclaimed novel—published to coincide with the release of the feature film starring Colin Farrell and Dallas RobertsM ichael Cunningham's celebrated novel is the story of two boyhood friends: Jonathan, lonely, introspective, and unsure of himself; and Bobby, hip, dark, and inarticulate. In New York after college, Bobby moves in with Jonathan and his roommate, Clare, a veteran of the city's erotic wars. Bobby and Clare fall in love, scuttling the plans of Jonathan, who is gay, to father Clare's child. Then, when Clare and Bobby have a baby, the three move to a small house upstate to raise "their" child together and create a new kind of family. A Home at the End of the World masterfully depicts the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.
This book was a fast read, but not terribly good. I didn't like any of the characters in this book. They just were not people I would like in real life.
