It was nice to get back to Graham Greene after having a little break from him, especially as he’s one of my all-time favourites. I’ve missed his unique writing style, and his storylines always get me excited. In this one, it’s almost a human interest story as we follow a young man as he writes about his adopted father, “The Captain”.

It turns out that The Captain might not have been everything he claimed to be. In many ways, he’s a classic anti-hero, but we can’t help but like him. He’s a loveable rogue, a bit like Del Boy from Only Fools and Horses. I also liked the way that we were slowly introduced to the truth of what was going on. It was subtle, and that’s why it worked.

If he’d played it a little differently, it would have felt as though he was insulting the reader’s intelligence, and Greene never does that. Ultimately, he tells a good story, and that’s exactly what you’re getting here.
