it was amazing

this would make an awesome book for discussion. greene creates a really interesting tension between one man's ready mercy for others and distrust of mercy from God, as well as drawing to the fore the relationship and distinction between pity and love.
This book has left me pondering several things, one of which is the main character's capability for truly loving God without being able to comprehend his mercy, or at least being able to trust in it.
Also intriguing was Greene's treatment of suicide.
