Book report



Graham Greene's The Third Man: a detective fiction which made me discover an after-war Vienna I didn't know a thing about.

George Orwell's A Clergyman's Daughter: Orwell has an efficiency in his way of describing human nature; I find his lack of fioritures as beautiful as some others' poetic works, as if bareness and fullness met in one point. His writing is truthful, that is the best way I can decribe it even if it may sound uneasy.

  1. I was just watching the movie of The Third Man last week! It's so good… but I haven't read the book, as much as I love Graham Greene.

  2. I can't wait to see the movie! I stumbled upon the book the same day a friend recommended me the movie, and decided to read it beforehand. You should read it though, it really is easy to go through it in a day or two! (I got my copy at All Books beside the Bytowne Cinema, they have new books at used prices)
