    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
    Would you listen to Our Man in Havana again? Why?

    Possibly -- it is amusing. Well read, amusing characters, amusing story. Not serious but still not too light weight. Good book, good reader.


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

    Somewhat -- I did wonder what would happen next.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Do not remember


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    NO -- it was all amusing, as it is meant to be.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent for someone who wants an amusing book well read -- but not silly and with some interest in who the people are and what is happening in Havana and London.
