  • Intensely Catholic yet somehow accessible and thought-proving to everyone, I found truths in the novel as a Christian rather than belonging to any one religion
  • I enjoyed how Maurice tells the tale of his relationship with Sarah, a woman without any prior faith save one remarkable incident as a child

      When Sarah calls off her affair with Maurice Bendrix, her lover spends much anguish seeking out her motivations. Surely she could not have fallen back in love with her dull husband, he reasons so his mind settles on the realization that she has found someone else. Little does Maurice understand that the Other man she has found is

      the last one he would suspect.

      Graham Greene’s The End of the Affair is one of my favorite novels ever written. It is a novel of pain, love and ultimately about faith and our relationship with God. Intensely Catholic yet somehow accessible and thought-proving to everyone, I found truths in the novel as a Christian rather than belonging to ...


      • any one religion.

        I enjoyed how Maurice tells the tale of his relationship with Sarah, a woman without any prior faith save one remarkable incident as a child. Her relationship with God is formed through her relationship with Bendrix, unusual since the man that she loves and brought her to such great faith was not her husband but her

        lover.

        In the end, when Bendrix refuses to give his love to a God he feels has broken his heart, one gets the sense that he is beginning the long road that Sarah, herself took.

        This is a truly moving novel, one that examines our love of God and His Love for us even through such feelings as disbelief, agony and anger.
