Book Review of The Power and the Glory

The Power and the Glory
chrisnsally avatar reviewed on + 113 more book reviews

The Power and the Glory has been listed as the "must read" Graham Greene novel and everyone should read a work of Senor Greene's, just not necessarily The Power and The Glory. This tale is gritty and hot and desprate as all Greene's work can be. The terms refer to psychological tone of the tale not the sexual tone. This book struck me as a very sad and wandering story of a very lost man, reminds me of Victor Hugo's The Bishop's Candlestick in tone. I would suggest Greens novel The Comedians as an more enjoyable read than The Power and the Glory.
