    Scobie, a police officer in a West African colony, is a good and honest man. But when he falls in love, he is forced into a betrayal of everything that he has ever believed in, and his struggle to maintain the happiness of two women destroys him.

    Elanjelian says: "A Novel on Sin and Damnation"
    "Kitchen is perfect for Greene's style and cadence"

    Story
    If you could sum up The Heart of the Matter in three words, what would they be?

    Brilliant. Sobering. Deep.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, because of Scobie's attempts to reconcile circumstance, love, faith, justice, duty, conscience, lust, and opportunity.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Scobie first meeting the shipwreck survivors


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think.


    Any additional comments?

    Please get Michael Kitchen to record The Power and the Glory and Brighton Rock, Graham Greene's other serious morality books. The current readers of those two absolutely pale in comparison to Kitchen.
