Why the rave reviews?
While I certainly appreciated the contemporary exploration of faith and its attendant crises, to be perfectly frank I found this novel downright boring. I trudged apathetically through the thing, hardly able to bring myself to care about the plot or any of the characters (this from someone who has waded through the first 4 books of 'À la recherche du temps perdu'). I know perfectly brilliant folks who love Greene, but this book has caused me to have my own crisis of faith - in their literary taste. Well, at least Greene's novels are short.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very boring and dull but funnily I could not abandon the book without fully reading it. Though the prose is slow, one should recognize the pessimism of the characters and find similarity of the situation with our lives.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
