I loved The End of the Affair more than I even thought possible, but this one failed to wow me in nearly the same way. The kind of sociopath he chooses to explore feels very done now, and I found myself decidedly off-put by his emphasis on the motherliness of the female characters. Will continue trying Greene's novels, but I'm a little concerned now that The End of the Affair was one of those singular masterpieces that the rest of his oeuvre could never stand up to.
