If a book can be comical and serious at the same time, this is it! Greene is, of course, the complete master of the English language...his prose is beyond description. The story of an odd old bachelor who embarks on travels with his strange, old aunt...a woman with a smoky past...and discovers his own past, his true inner self, and his future, all without meaning to. Hard to put down!

This book was my introduction to Graham Greene, and I really enjoyed his style.

This book seems quite dated in how it deals with race and in its references to hippies. It is a little morally unbelievable in its portrayal of how a sedate retired banker gets pulled into a world of criminality. For a better work by this author I'd try The Power and the Glory instead.

In this classic novel, "Henry Pulling, a retired bank manager, meets his septuagenarian Aunt Augusta for the first time in over fifty years at what he supposes to be his mother's funeral. Soon after, she persuades Henry to abandon Southwood.." and the story just gets better and better.
