    " I read this book because I knew that I liked the author. Good one. Indicates the importance of devoting time to someone that you claim to love. "

    " I really liked Greene's The Quiet American so much that I am willing to give anything written by him a try. In this story it seems that he is trying to channel Pip in Great Expectations, but falls a bit short. There is so much emotional detachment in all of Greene's characters and I find it a bit redundant and rather annoying. In writing from a youth's perspective, he is constantly pointing out that his account is marred by fantasy and selective memory. Obviously, such is life from a child's perspective. Sentences here and there take your breath away, but that (in my opinion) is Greene's forte. "

    " Greene's last novel--a motherless boy is taken from boarding school by a man (the Captain) claiming to have won him from his father in a game of backgammon and promptly leaves him as comfort to a disconsolate young woman (Liza). The novel is the boy's, and later man's, journal and inquiry into the nature of the Captain's mysterious and below-board dealings and of the Captain's relationship with Liza. Many Greene themes present: the mystery of love, the inability to know others, loneliness, honesty and integrity. "

    " It's OK. Not the best compared to the rest of Greene's fiction, but a decent story all the same. "
