The fourth and final of the Ripley novels.

Unclose Jul 16, 2012

Patricia Highsmith spent way too much time stalling, I thought. The build-up process for this novel was tiresome. It was worth it though for the scenes where Tom Ripley finally took action, and ultimately for the novel's ending. Even a character like Tom Ripley isn't one-hundred precent evil. A compassionate, parental side to this character surfaces -although he always seems to be dissecting life. This novel is a great read partially set in Germany when the Berlin Wall was still in place. It is out of context with the other four novels though.
