Pure torture; pure relentless torture. Thank God, I had read ten or more books by Graham Greene before picking this book up because if this was the first book I had read by this literary giant it would have been the last.

“The Lawless Roads” reads like a diary, without any constructive narrative and with run on sentences that makes the works of Proust look like the works of Hemingway; and in reality it is the impressions of Mr. Greene, who as a journalist, went down to Mexico in 1937 to report on the persecution of Catholics by the government in many of the cities and towns. It is the framework for his latest masterpiece “The Power and the Glory” and I am really happy that out of this pile of garbage was born the above mentioned masterpiece.41KI91LBV0L._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_


  1. Mr. Sciuto, thank you so much for your honest reviews. I thought honesty and integrity in this country had been laid to the side. Your reviews and novels are saturated in truth and integrity. That is why I continue to follow both.
    Joe, “You’re the best” !
