Talented Mr. Ripley

Unfortunately, the book did not deliver for me. The promising opening moved into trite recounting and long lists of back and forth between the Tom and the Dickie personas. I couldn’t keep it all straight. By the end, I didn’t care. I never grew to love or sympathize/empathize with Tom Ripley; I didn’t find his lot in life so bad–not bad enough to kill for convenience. At the outset, I was prepared to take on all the sequels, but not now… regretfully.
