The Talented Mr. Ripley

Highsmith, Patricia

Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Print
In a chilling literary hall of mirrors, Patricia Highsmith introduces Tom Ripley.  Like a hero in a latter-day Henry James novel, is sent to Italy with a commission to coax a prodigal young American back to his wealthy father. But Ripley finds himself very fond of Dickie Greenleaf. He wants to be like him--exactly like him.  Suave, agreeable, and utterly amoral, Ripley stops at nothing--certainly not only one murder--to accomplish his goal.  Turning the mystery form inside out, Highsmith shows the terrifying abilities afforded to a man unhindered by the concept of evil.

This was on a list of classic/must-read mysteries and I'm glad I picked it up! Very engaging writing. Tom Ripley is not a likeable character in the least yet I found myself hoping he would get away with murder...

Highsmith gets into the head of a madman like no other author. Very creepy.
