In a legendary novel that appears to predict the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, Graham Greene introduces James Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman whose life in transformed when he is asked to join the British Secret Service. He agrees, and finds himself with no information to offer, so begins to invent sources and agencies which do not exist, but which appear very real to his superiors.

Then follow some very real events, such as undercover work and even murder attempts, all backed up by phantom chains of information and invented covert agencies.

An often light-hearted but massively important complete and unabridged audiobook, which makes many comments on present-day life despite being published over 50 years ago. The book was also made into a hit film starring Carol Reed and Alec Guinness in 1959, and has recently (2007) been the subject of a play adaptation staged in Guildford to a enthusiastic public reception.

    " I had trouble getting into this book at first. Much of it is conversation driven, and it's the type of witty banter that was common in Katheryn Hepburn or Carey Grant movies that came out in the 1950s. It's entertaining to watch but a bit annoying to read (at least for me). As the book grew darker, I enjoyed it more, however, and ultimately was glad I'd read it. "

    " I liked this a lot. It just what you want from Graham Greene - a book that you actively want to keep reading, and that features a main character that you can empathise with, full of humour and (sometimes just about) believable characters). Worth a go, like everything I have read of his. "

    " I never got really emotionally invested in this book; I did, however, think it was an amazing amount of intellectual ideas packed into just aout 200 pages. And very subtly, at that, because you think you're just reading a kind of funny little romp of a book, and then you realize there is much more at play, both on an individual and societal level. So I would highly suggest this book, though I will never be able to say I loved it. I do think, though, that it is one I will remember for a long time. "
