Crome Yellow, published in 1921 was Aldous Huxley's first novel. In it he satirizes the fads and fashions of the time. It is the witty story of a house party at 'Crome' where there is a gathering of bright young things. We hear some of the history of the house from Henry Wimbush, its owner and self appointed historian; Apocylapse is prophesied, virginity is lost, and inspirational aphorisms are gained in a trance. Our hero, Denis, tries to capture it all in poetry and is disappointed in love.

Huxley is a phrophetic voice from the cusp of change that was catalysed by the physical horrors, social disassembly and technological advancements of The Great War. Martin Clifton is a good reader, his voice sonorous and sympathetic to the material. I particularly liked his reading of the few french quotes contained in the text.

Did not love this story but Martin Clifton could read me the phone book. Such a lovely voice with beautiful language skills.

Always seems to not quite completely finish a thought.
