Publisher's Summary

WINNER of the Pulitzer Prize

The Sunday Times Bestseller

Best Books of 2022 pick—New York Times, Obama, TIME, Slate, Oprah Daily, Kirkus, LA Times, EW, Sarah Jessica Parker

Trust by Hernan Diaz is a sweeping, unpredictable novel about power, wealth and truth, set against the backdrop of turbulent 1920s New York. Perfect for fans of Succession.

Can one person change the course of history?

A Wall Street tycoon takes a young woman as his wife. Together they rise to the top in an age of excess and speculation. But now a novelist is threatening to reveal the secrets behind their marriage, and this wealthy man’s story—of greed, love and betrayal—is about to slip from his grasp.

Composed of four competing versions of this deliciously deceptive tale, Trust brings us on a quest for truth while confronting the lies that often live buried in the human heart.

Download now! Beautiful, riveting

Who would think the world of finance in the early 1900s could be fascinating to a no-numbers guy like me! Loved every word. From the old NYC to the mountains of Europe with twists and turns and feminism and intrigue - this is a fab book and delivered with pitch perfect performances.

Immensely dull

Little story, little character development, lots of long explanations of relatively simple financial mechanisms. Very dull

Worth persevering

After being so engrossed in the first part, I found it hard to adjust to part 2. I gave the audio a break and am so glad I came back to it. I loved everything about this novel. It’s one I’ll listen to again - I think on a second listening the significance of each part would be different.

Superb and brilliant writing

Mesmerising performance/l and beautifully written - a perfect example of how small a very intelligent woman can become in a verbose man’s world - shameful

A must read

It starts slow, predictable even. But as the story comes together, building on itself, it becomes increasingly r that this is a masterpiece.

Enjoyable

The sense of where it was going emerged fairly early on, but it remained an enjoyable read.

A curate’s egg

This is an impressive intellectual achievement in some ways but the writing sounded to me a bit too much like reportage. I also found the characters unappealing and the ideas that the novel develops, with one or two exceptions, uninteresting. The performances were very good but wasn’t enough for me.

Wow. Absolutely my new favourite book 💫

The story, and the mapping of this story was just so wonderful. I’m going to listen again in a few months. The characters were elusive and revealing at the same time (!!).
Every performance was spot on, but Orlagh really conveyed her character.
Just incredible.
