between heaven and hell, some deep insights,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brighton Rock (Vintage Classics) (Kindle Edition)
Brighton Rock preserves the ethos of post-war gang violence and lost innocence. But what makes it contemporary with us is the laying bare of at least three people's psychologies . The novel is also set between heaven and hell. But the good might not choose heaven if it means abandoning those they love. The novel is an exposure of innocence abused, of pride drawing someone away from the only good decisions they might have made. I do not want to give away the plot as its is driven by its own suspense which emerges from the fateful decisions characters make. But it is worth saying that the plot has its own twist.
