An extremely well-written piece; I can imagine how effective it was as a one-woman theater evening. Some of the scenes Tóibín imagines may offend the religious sensibilities of some, but this is fiction, not history. I was enriched by the emphasis on what a mother experienced as her gifted son went off, followed by a pack of grim, wild-eyed misfits, then standing at the foot of a cross to witness a suffering she had been helpless to prevent. Here and there the author makes historical mistakes that could have easily been avoided with a bit of research, for instance, on the burial customs of the time. It may seem like a quibble, but I think his narrative would have been stronger if he had taken the trouble to get them right. Nonetheless, a very good read. ( )

At the risk of revealing what a low-brow reader I am, I’d recommend Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal over this. Sure, it lacks the Booker-level prose style, but it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me see the tragedy of the crucifixion as I never had before, while The Testament of Mary left me dry. It was hard to connect with this bitter, alienated Mary. ( )

Scandalous and gut-wrenching. Meryl Streep narrates the audiobook of this one, and she is, of course, marvelous. By the time I was almost finished listening to disc one, though, I was so impatient to hear the rest of the story more quickly, that I checked out the book instead. Either way, Toibin's reimagining of Mary's life and psyche is unforgettable. ( )

This book is a narrative of Mary's story after the crucifixion. It does not follow the Biblical narrative; instead it tells the story of a Mary that fled from the cross, who despises John, and does not believe her son was the Son of God. I found the story more depressing than haunting. It was a sad tale and I found it too short to really get much of a glimpse into who Mary was. ( )

Couldn't ask for a better reader than Meryl Streep. This one really got me thinking. Told by Mary after Jesus death. Interesting point of view. Well written. Expertly performed. ( )

Colm Tóibín's mothers don't always behave as they should; they are often unpredictable, occasionally downright troublesome, prone to gusts of passion or rage or – worse – unnatural indifference. Rarely are they uncomplicated figures of placid, nurturing devotion; but they do make for fantastically involving fiction. In his 2006 short-story collection, Mothers and Sons, Tóibín brought us relationships that were often characterised by the way they inverted traditional roles. An entrepreneurial widow plots to escape to the anonymity of the big city, clashing with her son's determination to hold fast to their small-town life; another man slinks away from a crowded pub rather than be spotted by the celebrated mother who has absented herself from his life; in "A Long Winter", a magnificent extended piece set in rural Spain, a young man is forced to keep house ineptly for his father after his alcoholic mother walks out into a snowstorm rather than be deprived of drink.....
