THE END OF THE AFFAIR by Graham Greene

images

“This is a record of hate far more than of love,” writes Maurice Bendrix in the opening passages of The End of the Affair, and it is a strange hate indeed that compels him to set down the retrospective account of his adulterous affair with Sarah Miles. Now, a year after Sarah’s death, Bendrix seeks to exorcise the persistence of his passion by retracing its course from obsessive love to love-hate. At first, he believes he hates Sarah and her husband, Henry. Yet as he delves further into his emotional outlook, Bendrix’s hatred shifts to the God he feels has broken his life, but whose existence at last comes to recognize.

Comments: What can I even say about this book. It was so fascinating in a really weird way. I would never recommend it, the subject is not moral and the journey not really one to admire, but the writing was superb, in my humble opinion. I disliked everyone in this book, I disliked the subject but I had to finish it because of the writing. Anyhow, food for thought I suppose.
