Highly literary writing often makes this one slow-going, but it's worth the read. Greene explores the theme of committment, in every definition throughout the book. With a single sentence muttered entirely out of fear, one character changes two lives forever. The depth to which Greene considers how committed a person can possibly be to a person, an idea, or a life is possibly the greatest study of this act in literature.

Recommended if you're looking for a deep and satisfying read.
