The End of the Affair

The End of the AffairThe End of the Affair by Graham Greene

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The succinct writing style drives the story quickly and produces lovely nuggets of crisp dialog and narrative quips. The use of the protagonist as the author of the book is offset by the interlude of reading the diary of his lover, although the voices sound similar. The author's mastery of language makes the book very enjoyable even though I felt the ending too preachy.
