The Third Man is unlike other Greene books Reading Graham Greene essentially needs such information, therefore, we can find ourselves busy reading his works with arguable enjoyment and understanding

The Third Man is unlike other Greene books. As Greene himself points out in the preface, 'it was never written to be read but only to be seen'. In other words, while it's not exactly a film script, The Third Man was written to be turned into one, and it shows. Reading Graham Greene essentially needs such information, therefore, we can find ourselves busy reading his works with arguable enjoyment and understanding. Once in a while, we might have heard/read on a saying warning us not to judge a book by its cover.

First published in 1949. 1. ONE NEVER knows when the blow may fall. He couldn't have afforded Vienna if Lime had not offered to pay his expenses when he got there out of some vaguely described propaganda fund. He could also, he said, keep him supplied with paper Bafs-the only currency in use from a penny upwards in British hotels and clubs. up in his own flat, a large apartment on the edge of Vienna that had been requisitioned from a Nazi owner. Lime could pay for the taxi when he arrived, so Martins drove straight away to the building lying in the third (British) zone.

Graham Greene's tense thriller and the basis for the iconic movie - now rejacketed in a striking and stylish series style. See all Product description. Haven't read The Fallen Idol yet, but the reason recommends Greene as much as having finished The Third Man. I'm a little skeered to try the second story, because it sounds harrowing. I need to work up to it. Have seen the movie The Third Man many times, and it's excellent of course (Check YouTube for Orson Welles' "cuckoo clock" clip). Now I've read the story, and enjoyed that as well.

The Third Man is Greene's brilliant recreation of post-war Vienna, a city of desolate poverty occupied by four powers. Rollo Martins, a second-rate novelist, arrives penniless in Vienna to visit his old friend and hero Harry Lime. Harry is dead, but the circumstances surrounding his death are highly suspicious, and his reputation, at the very least, dubious.

Despite what other reviewers have written, The Third Man works first as literature. I know Vienna pretty well and am impressed at the desolate picture Greene creates of it--the smashed tanks and bombed buildings that turned the wintry city landscape into "great glaciers of snow and ice." The English pronunciation, "glassy-airs," makes the line read more smoothly than "glay-shurz." If Greene derided The Third Man in later years, the reason could be the pure artist's distrust of a work that achieves such phenomenal commercial success.
The Third Man is narrated by Colonel Calloway, a competent but world-weary, cynical police inspector of the British Occupation Army at the end of the Second World War. The problem for the American, Rollo Martins, in Calloway's opinion, is that Martins "believed in friendship, and that was why what happened later was a worse shock to him than it would have been to you or me." And then Calloway apologizes for being presumptuous about others' conceptions of friendship.
My copy of The Third Man arrived five days after I ordered it. I had to replace my old Pocket Book 1974 edition when I realized the Pocket Book editors had deleted Calloway's more trenchant observations of the Russian Occupation Army--as an arm of Stalin's foreign policy initiatives--in the spirit of "Detente," the policy of accomodation that characterized the early seventies, or until the Russian invasion of Afghanistan.
But the Russians are portrayed only as boorish lackeys of a totalitarian state. The real evil is perpetrated mostly by ex-pat Americans led by Harry Lime and Colonel Cooler. In one remarkable passage, Greene describes Lime's evil as something out of Christopher Marlowe: "Marlowe's devils wore squibs attached to their tails: evil was like Peter Pan--it carried the horrifying gift of eternal youth."
Odd to think of romance blossoming in such an environment. Greene describes Anna Schmidt, with her head bent against the chill winds, "a dark question mark on the snow."
The Third Man, a classic! (five stars)

If you're old enough you are doubtless familiar with the film version of The Third Man; the theme from the film became a hit on the 'Top 40' in its day. I found the film difficult to follow (maybe it was the repetitive theme song, played over and over and over, throughout), so I looked for the book to finally get a grip on what the story was about. This is a somwhat obscure paperback, but I found it on Amazon at a good price, and the icing on the cake was a second Graham Greene story between the same covers. Both stories were good, non-taxing reads.

A short novel, loaded with atmosphere and historical details of life in Europe after WWII... Graham Green is a keen observer of both times and of human character. His handling of matters of the heart and conscience is sensitive and extremely convincing. An unforgettable story for those who love history, and for those who want to know how it felt to be there at the time...

I bought this book because I wanted to visit the Third Man Museum in Vienna (because it had great reviews) and I couldn't figure out how to watch the film online. I really enjoyed both the book and the Museum. Fallen Idol was also a good, quick read.

Haven't read The Fallen Idol yet, but the reason recommends Greene as much as having finished The Third Man. I'm a little skeered to try the second story, because it sounds harrowing. I need to work up to it.

Have seen the movie The Third Man many times, and it's excellent of course (Check YouTube for Orson Welles' "cuckoo clock" clip). Now I've read the story, and enjoyed that as well.

Also recommend The Tenth Man — a Graham Greene tale lost for about four decades before being found and filmed by, I think, MGM, in Britain. The filmed version of that is not as good as the book, because it was made for TV. But it stars three awesome and accomplished actors (Anthony Hopkins, Kirsten Scott Thomas, Derek Jacobi) so it's also/at least watchable. In that case, though, the book is superior.

If you're a fan of The Third Man as a movie, this will be an enjoyable read going over the same ground. If the book is first for you, you'll need to read more closely, but then you can grab the movie and further embed the story in your experience. That's a good thing.

I need to read more Graham Greene. He grounds the sins of the fathers and mothers in a (sometimes barely discernible) transcendent world. In other words, he tells stories about our real lives.
