I like a wide range of books especially when I discover something new and great. I like to mix some classics in with the crime and sci fi .
This was in fact the first Greene book to be published and in the preface to a Penguin reprint he says he finds it a little embarrassing, derivative and romantic.
He missed slow and occasionally boring from his list. There are of course good things about it, there is a thought provoking internal dialogue that follows the main character, some tense moments and it is mildly erotic in parts.
I was delighted to have found a Greene book I had not read but I think my time would have been better spent re-reading the the Power and the Glory. Come on Audible get that one recorded!
It is a good novel with drama and suspence of the highest order. The narration is of the best
"A Classic/Interest/Enjoyable .. but not inspiring"
It is an interest book that follows the journey of self doubt and the paraoia of Andrews.
This book is surprising at every turn and yet every event, and every conversation makes total sense. It's a difficult book to put down, and you'll probably want to read it again
I enjoy the audible experience, the tone and expressiveness of the reader adds an additional dimension.
Nothing - good performance all round.
I just couldn't get going with this story. Too slow for me and not very much happened.
