    " Recommended by Sophia. We read it as a book club book in Jumby Bay. Only Hoffman, Oline and I could finish it "

    " For being his most acclaimed novel "The Power and the Glory" was quite average compared to "The Quite American". At no point did I feel completely engaged with this novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Craig | 5/14/2011

    " I thought it was a realistic personality study between the priest and the lieutenant who's hunting him down. I've heard of Greene writing more suspenseful, spy-related stuff, and I'm eager to read those. This book was very different from that, but very good. "

    " Took me ten attempts to get past chapter 2 and then discovered it was well worth trying. "

    " I hardly know know what to say about this book. It was not exactly vacation reading, but it was also beautiful, disturbing, thought-provoking and back to beautiful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 3/19/2011

    " Troubling book. Cooped up on a couch with a freak knee injury, i read much of this in two days. It makes me wonder about Catholicism, about pain, about the messed up martyrs who've gotten me where I am today, and about my own (un)sacred journey. And thank God I'm not a Catholic. "

About the Author
Author Graham Greene

Graham Greene (1904–1991) was an English novelist, short-story writer, and playwright. He was an ardent convert to Catholicism, and religious themes are at the root of much of his writing. He served with the Secret Intelligence Service during the Second World War. His novels are set in places in a state of seedy decay, and many of his locations, such as Vietnam in The Quiet American and Cuba in Our Man in Havana, became international crisis spots.
