A Book to Read and Love: The Quiet American - Graham Greene

 


A short summary of The Quiet American:

An overachieving American advisor leads to an escalation in the First Indochina War.

My favorite quote from the book:

“Innocence is a kind of insanity”


Questions to ponder while reading The Quiet American:

Have you ever thought you were doing the right thing but weren't?

My thoughts about the book:

Old-school anti-communist espionage novel.

A Vietnam War book before American involvement.

A book to make you question foreign policies.
