Might have to check this one out. I read The Heart of the Matter eight or so years ago, and was embarrassingly unimpressed- knowing that Greene's a favorite author among many of my favorite authors. This, though, sounds like something I could get into.

I could not stand The Heart of the Matter. The other ones I have read so far are much better. This one was pretty cool because with Greene you cannot count on a happy ending - or predict anything about where the plot will turn - so I was eager to read on and find out what would happen. The moral issues his characters went through were just icing on the cake.

Thanks for the recommendation. Orwell is another author I want to get to know better. Shooting an Elephant is definitely on the list. Books v. Cigarettes was pretty bleak and I imagine that Shooting an Elephant is similarly gut-wrenching. I'll finish the Greene project first, tho. After all, your recommendations for Our Man in Havana and Travels with my Aunt have kicked off my current addiction.
