Synopsis

The End of the Affair by Graham Greene

The love affair between Maurice Bendix and Sarah, flourishing in the turbulent times of the London Blitz, ends when she suddenly and without explanation breaks it off. After a chance meeting rekindles his love and jealousy two years later, Bendix hires a private detective to follow Sarah, and slowly his love for her turns into an obsession.

Reviews

Devastating study of the collision of different kinds of faith, betrayal and commitment The Times In a class by himself...the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety -- William Golding One of the most true and moving novels of my time, in anybody's language -- William Faulkner Greene's novel of illicit love captures perfectly the atmosphere of rainy wartime London - try to read this in one sitting if you can. Express This novel had a great effect on my life...This is not a sentimental book, or one full of the kindness of God, in that both the man and the woman suffer the pain of loss and feel the heat of hell. This novel persuaded me to become a Catholic. Guardian

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
