Editorial Reviews site. The affair in question involves Maurice Bendrix, a solipsistic novelist, and a dutifully married woman, Sarah Miles. The lovers meet at a party thrown by Sarah's dreary civil-servant husband, and proceed to liberate each other from boredom and routine unhappiness. Reflecting on the ebullient beginnings of their romance, Bendrix recalls: Sarah rushes down to find him lying under a fallen door, and immediately makes a deal with God, whom she has never particularly cared for.
I'll give him up forever, only let him be alive with a chance People can love each other without seeing each other, can't they, they love You all their lives without seeing You.

After recently finishing Mr. They reminded me more of self-absorbed adolescents than of adults living in London through World War 11 and its aftermath. Nevertheless, I plan on reading much more of Mr. Greene's works. My negative reaction to this book has in no way discouraged me from exploring all of this marvelous writer's work. This is an excellent novel, and one that's even better as an audiobook. Colin Firth does an unbelievable job bringing this book to life.
I was riveted through the entirety.
This is a novel that will make you question the nature of love and religion, without giving you the answer. I listened to this book while driving cross-country, which wasn't ideal for two reasons. First, the novel had me openly weeping at several points, which isn't great while driving for obvious reasons.
Second, I was so riveted that everything else I should have been paying attention to while driving was a nuisance. While this certainly made the hours fly by, be safe! This is one audiobook that will demand your full attention.
I absolutely recommend. Kindle Edition Verified download. I did not enjoy this book. I struggled to care about the characters and I was actually relieved when I finished the book.
I like the intelligence and wittiness of the author,how well he tells the story, and how vividly he portrays the characters such that you feel as if you know them. The story is very layered and isnt a cheap read. Using the Kindle app helped me to immediately find definitions for unfamilar words or expressions.
Even though not a religious book, i was surprised at the spiritual and philosophical questions raised or implied. It challenged some of my opinions about faith and how we see God. Striking comment that stood out is that we make God in our own image, the irony of what Scriptures say. The story has a very interesting and surpising end that invites discussion if one is in a book club.
I really enjoyed this book. The explorations of love vs hate, morality and faith, fidelity vs lust are thought-provoking well balanced throughout. Somewhat spoiler-y below - - - - - - I found myself strangely rooting for the narrator by the end.
Hoping that his stubborn hate would sustain him, though doubting it would last, truly, at the end. A fine story. Something refreshing and different from a lot of books.
One person found this helpful. Not only does every word counts, but the resolution is so powerful that much like Bendrix, the reader comes to an end of himself.
The story starts with the remembering of a love affair gone wrong. Little by little, however, it becomes apparent that the real story is that of a love affair beginning. Bendrix is Greene's mirror image, a novelist who doesn't want to believe but cannot escape God.
Sarah is the great heroine of Greene's literary corpus, a fully developed enigma only explained in death. Henry is th e cuckolded husband who loves self and England more than anyone else.
Parkis and son and Smythe start off as minor, but become the essential witnesses to the supernatural. A pleasure to read from the first word to the last.
This is one of the great novels of the 20th century. I can see how one could either love or hate this book Because of this, it deeply touched me with the most human and real emotion The story seems so simple: Bendrix, a self-absorbed bachelor writer, has an affair with Sarah, the wife of Bendrix's friend, Henry. The relationship sparks love inside of Bendrix, and reawakens passions in Sarah, until a bomb falls, leading Sarah to make a deal with God: Please re-enter recipient e-mail address es.
