Reviews

Perhaps the most enduring novel that even he has give us * Daily Mail *
The tension never relaxes and one reads hungrily from page to page, dreading the moment it will end -- Auberon Waugh * Evening Standard *
Greene's work attempts to link the serious moral imagination with the spirit of adventure and romance and to extend the remapping of imaginative geography first undertaken by Conrad * Times Higher Education Supplement *
A superb storyteller with a gift for provoking controversy * New York Times *
Greene had the sharpest eyes for trouble, the finest nose for human weaknesses, and was pitilessly honest in his observations... For experience of a whole century he was the man within -- Norman Sherry * Independent *
