Excellent Narration, brilliant book

Julian Wadham was perfect for this strange but brilliant Graham Greene novel. Greed, love , hate and power all rolled up in this little book.

Dank and Defeatist

Bought this as a first edition hardback decades ago. Thought I was being very smart etc for having done so, I'm older, much, now than when I bought the book. I wasn't sure what the point was when I read the book, now I'm still uncertain. If I was supposed to believe/accept that all those awful people were awful simply because they went to all those parties to be humiliated in the hope of a mention in the will, well yes, I did believe all that. Did I need the droopy anti-hero to come to that conclusion? No, I didn't. He's got no less droopy with the passing of the years. Was I supposed to dislike everyone including the droopy anti-hero? No idea, but I did and do.

Despicable Dr Fischer.

A well written and interesting short novel about being human and very wealthy, and how greed can alter your personality and decision making. Brilliantly narrated by Julian Wadham, who brings a sensitivity to the characters and circumstances.
