    In a legendary novel that appears to predict the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, Graham Greene introduces James Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman whose life in transformed when he is asked to join the British Secret Service. He agrees, and finds himself with no information to offer, so begins to invent sources and agencies which do not exist, but which appear very real to his superiors.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Eliminate the bad Cuban themed music.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Classic Graham Greene.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeremy Northam’s performances?

    Yes, as long as it does not have the same producer, or whoever chose the music.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, Graham Greene is excellent this is one of his best stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Whoever chose the Cuban music has either no taste, no understanding of this book, or some combination of the two. Very intrusive, ruined the mood. I had to stop listening to it.
