Synopsis

Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read. Discover Graham Greene's most iconic novel.



A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things.'



In this gripping, terrifying, and unputdownable read, discover Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.



'Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas' Ian McEwan

Customer Reviews

Graham Greene's Brighton Rock is not among my favorite works by the author but after affording the novel a 2nd reading, it has risen considerably in my mind, perhaps another testimony to how time & place seem to alter & define how we deal with the words, characters & setting of a book. There is gloom, mistrust & murder aplenty in this tale. But as with so much of Greene's writing, it is the author's words and the descriptive detail that lift the story and serve to relieve the dreariness. For example, Rose's father is a small, thin, elderly man whose face is "marked deeply with the hieroglyphics of pain & patience & suspicion." It would appear that no one smiles or laughs in this novel.
