Graham Greene – The Quiet American

 

Listen, it’s rare for me to give a ten out of ten, and the Quiet American totally deserves it. One of the finest books from one of the finest writers on the planet, it’s a protest against the war in Vietnam from a man who worked as a war correspondent for The Times in French Indochina.

The characters are believable and multi-faceted, and the American himself, a CIA agent called ‘Pyle‘, is a sort of semi-antagonist, and much of what happens to him is central to the story-line. It’s a grand, mesmorising, sweeping depiction of war-time in Vietnam, and I absolutely love it.
