No, but Piggot-Smith was outstanding portraying a range of characters from the reserved, cynical British, the bully white South African and the strong black African woman. I felt he understood the book and portrayed the emotions of the characters well.
Greene as always presents a story with loads below the surface, enetertaining on face value but so much more beneath the veneer. Cynical, slow moving in parts and always with reserved humour the story builds and builds to its emotional climax. This is not just a spy story.
Other authors may pack a bigger punch in their story telling but with Greene there is always more to think about after the tale is told.
Is Graham Greene the most underrated author ever?
