Greg Tobin is a fine writer with the keenest of eyes towards setting and character. Conclave, the newest novel by Tobin, is gripping -- unsparing in authentic detail. Indeed, the book is almost a crash course in Catholicism, here, in Conclave he has given us a story of a young priests humanity and morality Tobin brings the atmosphere of a place to his literary table better than many writers. The readers are transported to this place, seeing what the characters see, breathing the same air... promises made, loves realized and the haunting memories of the Vietnam War. The book works magic with clear andcrisp prose, drawing the reader deeper and deeper into the story...a truly believable and heartwrenching tale...

Conclave is a good read even if you are not catholic. I found it highly interesting to go behind the walls of the Vatican and see how succession is arranged for the pope. The characters are interesting and their lives are revealed in snippets of information that make you anticipate the next piece of the story. The humanity and struggle of priests to find their own truth and define their own beliefs is also clearly revealed in this story.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
