The story of Scobie, the unlikely hero police officer in Sierra Leon. It is a hot humid, fly ridden novel, plenty of violence and adultery: everything that makes Graham Greene a great worth reading author.
I thought this was a tremendous book, and the first I had read by Graham Greene. I had heard he wrote poetry, and I would say this was poetry in prose. It was a little tough to get into to start, perhaps because it takes place in the '40s in a faraway, unknown place (unknown to me at least) but once the story got under way, I finished it in no time.
Great book to have discussions about, such as in a book club that focuses on philosophy, life, God and personal responsibilities to others.
