    I didn t really enjoy reading this novel compared to his famous The Power and the Glory for some reasons so my rating is around 2.75, not 3 The first reason is that this one is rather obscure to me, I have never known that it exists, thus my reading motive is a bit shaky The second one is concerned with my knowledge of Latin focusing on some functional ones related to my field of study, that is, I have known only those Latin phrases or abbreviations used in academic circles, for example via I didn t really enjoy reading this novel compared to his famous The Power and the Glory for some reasons so my rating is around 2.75, not 3 The first reason is that this one is rather obscure to me, I have never known that it exists, thus my reading motive is a bit shaky The second one is concerned with my knowledge of Latin focusing on some functional ones related to my field of study, that is, I have known only those Latin phrases or abbreviations used in academic circles, for example via, Nota bene, i.e., et al cf., etc itself The third one is about its religious terms and formidable ecclesiastical Latin which are absolutely Greek to me, for instance Opus Dei p 107 , the Mass p 180 , Communion p 181 , etc and the following In partibus infidelium p 19 , Esto mihi in Deum protectorem et in locum refugii p 101 , Et intoibo ad ...

    Greene s picaresque novel, a take on Cervantes Don Quixote, is a delightful read and mercifully, much shorter.The newly minted Monsignor Quixote of La Mancha sets off on a trip across Spain with Communist ex Mayor Sancho, and strangely encounter similar perils and pitfalls as their celebrated fictional namesakes of four centuries ago The Bishop is ostensibly on a shopping trip to buy his new vestments and the ex mayor is looking to get away and bury his hurt from losing the last town council Greene s pi...

    One of the insights I have gained from reading Greene is that we do not see eye to eye when it comes to being fascinated by religion It is a topic that holds little interest for me Unfortunately, Monsignor Quixote is very much focused on the religious I m describing the topic the religious because at the heart of the book is a dialogue between Monsignor Quixote, a Spanish priest, and Sancho, who used to be the major of the Monsignor s home town Sancho is a communist whose faith in Marx, One of the insights I have gained from reading Greene is that we do not see eye to eye when it comes to being fascinated by religion It is a topic that holds little interest for me Unfortunately, Monsignor Quixote is very much focused on the religious I m describing the topic the religious because at the heart of the book is a dialogue between Monsignor Quixote, a Spanish priest, and Sancho, who used to be the major of the Monsignor s home town Sancho is a communist whose faith in Marx, Engels, and Lenin is as strong as the Monsignor s in the holy trinity.What Greene sets out to do is to throw both characters together on a journey throug...

    Although one of Greene s later novels, Monsignor Quixote is his most dated work In the story, Quixote is promoted from village priest to Monsignor Quixote via an error His accompanying travelling comedian is Sancho, a Communist former mayor Although a clever homage to Cervantes work, this novel relies heavily on exploring Catholicism and theology Unfortunately, the themes are tired and dated for modern day readers And for many non Christian or even non Catholic readers, may even border on Although one of Greene s later novels, Monsignor Quixote is his most dated work In the story, Quixote is promoted from village priest to Monsignor Quixote via an error His accompanying travelling comedian is Sancho, a Communist former mayor Although a clever homage to Cervantes work, this novel relies heavily on exploring Catholicism and theology Unfortunately, the themes are tired and dated for modern day readers And for many non Christian or e...

    Crisp dialogue, a story not muddied with useless and monotonous description It was hilarious a priest in a brothel, a porn theater all unbeknownst to him until its too late, traveling with a communist mayor, the exchange of religion and faith and politics and human error, is both funny and thought provoking My first Greene novel, and will be reading the Quiet American next and if its as engrossingly funny as this he will surely jump to the top of my favorite author list.In a deeper review of Crisp dialogue, a story not muddied with useless and monotonous description It was hilarious a priest in a brothel, a porn theater all unbeknownst to him until its too late, traveling with a communist mayor, the exchange of religion and faith and politics and human error, is both funny and thought provoking My first Greene novel, and will be reading the Quiet American next and if its as engrossingly funny as this he will surely jump to the top of my favorite author list.In a deeper review of the of the novel, it deals with analyzing the line between fact and fiction, which becomes synonymous with d...
