The Third Man 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

The Third Man is an interesting story, but it was never supposed to be a novella. It has well developed and complex characters and interesting form because its narrator is a British policeman. I believe this book is well written, but I still think that the movie is better. The story is a short read for a rainy day, but you should not expect it to compare to the film. Some of the more interesting parts of the film are not in the book(i.e. the way they figure out that Lime is not dead.)

I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this book. I am not usually into spy stories, but the plot of this screenplay was both intriguing and enjoyable. I especially like that the author points out the differences between the original screenplay and that used for the film. This is one spy movie I would very much like to see.

I READ THIS BECAUSE I SAW THE FILM--WITH THAT GREAT ZITHER MUSIC AND CHARISMATIC ORSON WELLES. GREENE WRITES WELL, BUT THE STORY -- ACH! FORGET IT. I THINK THE MOVIE IS WORTH WATCHING, BUT YOU CAN SKIP THE BOOK. I FOUND THE PLOT A BIT CONFUSING TO FOLLOW IN THE NOVEL, AND IT JUST DID NOT INTEREST ME -- HARRY LIME, THE ENIGMATIC CRIMINAL AND LOVER, WITH HIS 2 LOYAL FOLLOWERS. WATCH THE FILM, INSTEAD!
