Day 7: Most underrated book

Our Man in Havana by Graham Greene

Critically I think it is wrong to say this is an underrated book: Greene appears to be a highly praised author. However, I have only met one other person who has read this funny, quirky satire on the British Secret Service. This seems unfair as this is a tightly plotted and written comedy, full of humour, but not without moments of tension too – it is occasionally a thriller. All the characters are a little ridiculous, including the protagonist, and it works. It is a very good novel, and I’m surprised it has been read so little. After all, poking fun at the government is always fun, and Greene does is so well.
