Ripley

I’ve only been in the mood to read fiction lately. I was going to polish off Highsmith’s Ripley Under Ground rather quickly, but I am reading it a chapter at a time before I go to bed.

Tom Ripley is another one of those protagonists who are always doing something underhanded. He kills those who discover his misdeeds or get in his way. I wonder if it is healthy to read too many novels without heroes?

I think I’ll read Cormac McCarthy’s Border Trilogy once I’m done with Ripley.
