The Power and the Glory (1940)

by Graham Greene (1904-1991)

This book was recommended (somewhere) as perhaps Greene’s best work. I liked The Quiet American better.

It’s a slightly interesting study of a priest at a time when it was illegal. He is trying to avoid being captured and shot, while trying to do his duty to those who might need his services. The conflict has the potential to be interesting, but I’m not particularly interested enough in the subject.
