Loser takes all by Graham Greene

I’m not going to lie to you. I picked this book because it was one of the rare ones I found taking place in #monaco Now that I have read a few #grahamgreene books I will say that this tiny book is a major letdown. The story is simplistic to say the least. It’s also highly predictable and mildly engaging. #greenecomes to live in a few pages here and there are specially when it comes to the main couple’s dialogues and #bertram ‘s exchange with his boss. I wish he had expanded that #wit and #cleverness to the rest of the book. Apparently it was also made into a #movie at least twice. Interested to know if anyone has seen them and what they thought of it. Also if someone knows of any #books in either English, French or Spanish based in Monaco, please do let me know. #shortstory #montecarlo #britishliterature#penguinclassics #bournemouth #casino#gambling #luxury #marriageissues#honeymoon #losertakesall #predictable
