A review of this — 6 years ago
Although I found the love triangle (or square, really) a bit melodramatic, overall I really liked this book. I’m not religious and definitely not Catholic, but I was intrigued by Scobie’s conflict over being true to the women he felt responsible for or being true to his soul. I can see why Greene was labeled as a “Catholic writer” after the success of this novel. Very well-crafted.
