Ripley does it again

by EllenS on Dec 1, 2011

Somehow the sociopathic Ripley get rid of his nemesis, the nosy American who has something on him. Highsmith is great at getting into the mind of a louse and making us sympathize with him. Read the other Ripley books before this on (the previous is Ripley Under Ground) for the background of this sly story.


Finishing up...

... the Ripley story created out of the streets and two-storey houses it's easy to speculate that show goes on, it never ends. This time the sins of Tom's past were on the edge of that pond where they got buried again - for how long? we never know. I'm just so curious if Heloise will leave him, after all, or, I mean, did she leave him? Frankly, Tom does not seem quite a male, neither female, and the 'it' must have been supposed to create such the impression: between two different patterns, between two different lives, between good and evil. But it always remains a dilema, if a bit of ripley is somewhere inside your neighbour waiting to jump out just in time you never expect it. That's not the book you enjoy, but it's the theme that get you scared.
