The Moon and the Sixpence

by W. Somerset Maugham

2 ratings, 1 review

This Maugham novel is based on the life of the painter Paul Gauguin. The story is told by the narrator as he gradually comes to know the main character Charles Strickland, a middle aged stock broker. We follow Strickland from the point where he abruptly abandons his wife and children to become an artist, through his life in Paris and Marseille to Tahiti, where he eventually dies of leprosy.

The story and narration were both excellent. There is only one reader, and he does a great job. He reads very clearly and alters his voice for the different characters.
