Could the ending be better, I am not sure that the resolution is satisfying, but it is all there, the story telling, flashes of recognition, the inability of the reader to affect the outcome, condemned to watch the unfolding events.
Best of his, who knows? As good as any, certainly.
Another Graham Greene classic, unless you don't like him.....
I’m not too sure what I can say – it was alright, and that’s all, an uninspiring novel that sticks out like a sore thumb against such books as The Quiet American, The Heart of the Matter and Our Man in Havana. It probably doesn’t help that twin siblings Anthony and Kate are fundamentally unlikeable, as is Kate’s lover, a powerful financier called Krogh.
In fact, that’s probably part of the problem – it’s difficult to get too absorbed in to a novel when the characters just annoy you, and I certainly felt no sympathy for their plight. That said, using such unappealing characters allows Greene to play them off each other in a way that he might not normally be able to do, and that ought to redeem the novel for serious fans of his work.

Storyline difficult to follow. The narrative moves from 1st person to 3rd person and doesn't, for me, seem to move in a coherent direction. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Robert Archer
The usual fascinating, if somewhat strange, Greene narrative. Emminently readable and full of insight into human nature.Published 12 months ago by Mrs G S Taylor
