    Story
    (57)

    Graham Greene explores corruption and atonement in this penetrating novel set in 1930s Mexico during the era of Communist religious persecutions. As revolutionaries determine to stamp out the evils of the church through violence, the last Roman Catholic priest is on the lam, hunted by a police lieutenant. Despite his own sense of worthlessness—he is a heavy drinker and has fathered an illegitimate child—he is determined to continue to function as a priest until captured.

    What disappointed you about The Power and the Glory?

    It was difficult to listen past the distortion of the recording and the awful voice of the narrator. Sounds like it was recorded in the 50's with a cheap microphone. Turning down all the bass and mid tones and turning up the high eq made it a little more bearable. Need to stop trusting audible and always preview the recording first....


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book itself is amazing have read it any times


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bernard Mayes?

    Anyone with a more human sounding voice. Mr. Mayes sounds like a dying frog.
