Publisher's Summary

In a poor Mexican state in the 1930s, the Red Shirts have viciously persecuted the clergy and murdered many priests. Yet one remains - the ‘whisky priest’ who believes he's lost his soul. On the run and with the police closing in, his routes of escape are being shut off, his chances getting fewer. But compassion and humanity force him along the road to his destiny…
Andrew Sachs reads Graham Greene’s powerful novel about a worldly Roman Catholic priest and his quest for penitence and dignity.

Narration gives great depth to the characters

What did you like most about The Power and the Glory?

That I'm sure a re-listening to the book will yield further.

Any additional comments?

Andrew Sachs: first class. Gave an extra sinister dimension to the character of the Mestizo – not a trace of Manuel there.

Wonderful book, remarkable rendition.

This was an incredible experience - the narrator's range of voices clearly distinguishes between the different characters, and his expressiveness throughout the text completely immersed me in the story. Poetic, poignant and precise - one of the geatest performances I have yet to hear on Audible.
