Customer Review

on 17 June 2000
My curiosity was pricked in publicity for the Anthony Minghella movie so I decided to give the book a go. Having now read the book, I can't believe Mrs Highsmith has been such a well kept secret - a rivetting narrative that keeps you hooked from the first page to the last. Highsmith must have known what a fantastic hero she had created as she continued with several sequels but this is still the best of the Ripley series. I was drawn to Tom more than any other literary character and while the movie version doesn't flesh out Ripley given it's constraints, I still think Matt Damon pulls off a pretty good Ripley. Read this book and see what the fuss is about - it's well worth it's five stars.
