A breathless read Set in Vienna at the end of World War II the reader is immediately struck off balance by a turbulent blighted world Gone is the gracious city of old world coffee houses Every street is in ruins the scars of war blanketed by snow Side by side on the same block are lovely old apartment houses and blackened craters Shops flourish at street level the floors above them bombed out of existence To add to the sense of displacement the city is divided into four zones ruled by the Allied victors Russia America France and EnglandInto this confused landscape falls Rollie Martins a writer of westerns and cheap thrillers Invited for a visit by his oldest friend Harry Lime he arrives at his apartment only to discover that his beloved school chum has died in a car accident Immediately discrepancies develop in the story Rollie tearfully vows to reconstruct the events of what really happened to his fallen hero It s obvious that GG didn t write this for publication but as a sketch for a screenplay though his characterizations are as always razor sharp the finessing of words is not as keenly honed as in say The Heart of the Matter or The End of the Affair Still the plot the setting the dilemmas and the betrayals are all Greene at his absolute best Having seen the movie years ago I knew the story and the ending and I still couldn t put the book down I actually preferred this Harry Lime a reckless amoral schoolboy to Orson Welles ominous obvious heavyThis is a jaded cynical discomfiting little story No one comes out well God I wish I could write like this

First a coincidence I don t usually read film scripts or plays but this is the second book in a row I have read not realizing ahead of time that they were in effect film scripts I just finished reviewing Marguerite Duras Hiroshima Mon Amour a film script Now Third Man comes along and it turns out that Graham Greene wrote this initially as a film script and re wrote it as a novella after the movie came out In fact in the preface he tells us it was never intended for publication and The film in fact is better than the story LOL I guess you can say these things when you are an accomplished author and you know that you have an automatic audience that will read your stuffIt s a decent story I guess I d call it a thriller Cloak and dagger The GR blurb from the book gives a good summary without giving away plot so I will use thatRollo Martins usual line is the writing of cheap paperback Westerns under the name of Buck Dexter But when his old friend Harry Lime invites him to Vienna he jumps at the chance With exactly five pounds in his pocket he arrives only just in time to make it to his friend s funeral The victim of an apparently banal street accident the late Mr Lime it seems had been the focus of a criminal investigation suspected of nothing less than being the worst racketeer who ever made a dirty living in this city Martins is determined to clear his friend s name and begins an investigation of his ownI liked the way the author alternates use of the main character s name He calls him Rollo when he says or does something stupid otherwise he s Martins It s Vienna right after WW II so we still have bombed out buildings and streets blocked with rubbleHis good friend from schooldays was struck and killed by an automobile The main character is suspicious so he starts his own investigation The he finds out from police reports and witnesses and from the dead man s woman friend the suspicious he becomes His suspicion centers on a third man at the accident scene who somehow disappeared because only one witness swears he saw him One of the witnesses gets murdered and Martins knows he s on to something A side story which is kind of a pun for the author is that Buck Dexter the main character s pen name is scheduled to speak at book clubs in Vienna about the Christian novel Greene is having fun with us because as an author he was considered by many to be a Catholic novelist although he did not consider himself one Another thread is that Rollo start to fall in love with his friend s womanA decent story and a uick read Not something memorable by Greene known for serious work I ll give it a 4 for a thriller and a 3 for its literary value I have not seen the movie but I imagine it could be good because it s a simple but good plot It s a British film from 1949 starring Joseph Cotten Stills from the movie Top from newstatesmancom middle from bfiorgukThe author from theguardiancomuk

The Third Man review ´ 104 Read Þ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Í Graham Greene Read & Download The Third Man H Cotton and Orson Welles as Harry Lime With sound effects the film theme tune and Martin Jarvis's effective tone t. Graham Greene to my mind somewhat stuffily separated his narrative books for much of his career into two categories fiction and entertainments such as this noir novel The Third Man The book was written or at least published after the screenplay he produced for the film by the same name 1949 directed by Carol Reed featuring Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles I saw the film decades ago and since I was reading all these mysteries and detective fiction and because I had just reread two of his finest novels The Heart of the Matter and The Power and the Glory I thought I would listen to the novel from a celebrated novelist I admire but the only thing available on my audiobook service was this adaptation for the stage of the screenplay Since two of the actors include Kelsey Grammer and John Mahoney Frasier I jumped and enjoyed I just don t see the distinction between novels and entertainments great writing is great writingThe Third Man is a really well written thriller short and taut and efficient about a crime ring that sells penicillin on the black market in Vienna in the aftermath of World War II Novelist Holly Martins is haunted by the news of the death of his friend Harry Lime who had offered him a job Who killed Lime And why Or is he possibly still alive Martins enlists the help of Anna Schmidt Lime s girlfriend There s some great dialogue and some happy surprises along the way The focus of the criminal material also not surprisingly for the Catholic Greene involves an ethical concern The children who are victims of Lime s diluted penicillin become brain damaged as a result of meningitisLime at one point confronted makes a brutal and heartless case for arguing in favor of greed over the dots human beings the masses the countless poor he observes from a several stories high perspective You know what the fellow said in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare terror murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance In Switzerland they had brotherly love they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did that produce The cuckoo clock Highly recommended though I will add a note about the film later soon to be reviewed Maybe better to see the film then read the screenplay or novel
