Publisher's Summary

The Way of All Flesh is a semi-autobiographical novel by Samuel Butler that attacks Victorian-era hypocrisy. Written between 1873 and 1884, it traces four generations of the Pontifex family. It represents a relaxation from the religious outlook from a Calvinistic approach, which is presented as harsh. Butler dared not publish it during his lifetime, but when it was published, it was accepted as part of the general revulsion against Victorianism.

What is this supposed to be?

I started listening to this while reading the book. While the narrated version has some of the same characters as the book in it, it seems it is an abbreviated version and far away from the original text. Instead this seems perhaps to be an adapted play? In any event the purchase was a big disappointment.
