A Literary Delight

Greene was a truly unique author whose career provided us with a few undeniable classics such as the screenplay for the "The Third Man" and produced many works which continue to be revisited today - with 2011's "Brighton Rock" film a topical example.

In this novel, with echoes of the intensity of Wuthering Heights, Greene gives a truly compelling narrative of the lifeline of a relationship that is both pure and savage at the same time. An excellent reading that captures the soul of a wonderful book that is a must for anyone working their way through modern classics.

The difinitive reading of Greene's work

Michael Kitchen's narration conveys the soul of Graham Greene's literary voice -- a great compliment. I've rarely been so "drawn in" by a reading. I am a long-time fan of Graham Greene's work and grateful to Kitchen for new insight into "The End of the Affair." Bravo!
More! More!

Good, but problematic

Graham Greene was a brilliant literary novelist.
This novel, to my opinion, is not his best.

The plot is interesting, beautifully- melancholic, and it's obvious that Greene put his soul into it.
However, as soon as i got into the story, the theme became very religious, almost missionary (Catholic).
I didn't mind the religious elements as long as they came from a personal point of view, especially since, some of the themes were thought provoking and touching, but in a way i was left under the impression - the missionary text took over the story, overshadowed the literary value of the whole and gave the final word.
