I think she should have retired Ripley after the first novel. ( )

Another astonishingly twisted tale from Highsmith. Ripley's no simple character. What's the quote? What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive? Or something like that. Ripley's the epitome. He solves a problem by spontaneously killing someone wch leads to even more problems wch lead to even more desperate & complicated solutions. No, no simple character. Ripley's simultaneously sociopathic & full of feeling, of appreciation for culture, of love & sentiment. & yet he kills almost like it's no big deal to solve problems when he can't think of any other way out. Highsmith handles the psychology like someone who's known quite a few extreme people in her time - maybe all w/in herself. ( )

Even knowing that Ripley must be getting away with it all in order for there to be still three books in the series, the atmosphere remains tense and delicate, with every hastily-made murder plan on the verge of disintegrating at the lightest witness/police probing.

The plot was interesting enough and exquisitely done, with the focus more on the unexpected psychological character studies, as well as some really astute reimagining of events by Highsmith-Ripley to come up with a plausible alibi for Ripley. The most delightful character is Heloise whose temperamental and moral childishness made her a perfect fit for her sociopathic husband. Moreover, in the same way that it's soothing to watch opulent period dramas, it was very wonderful to read about Ripley going about his gentleman-of-the-manor hobbies and jetsetting to various of his malevolent designs with no working-life worries. In fact, I'd be happy to read a book of no-murder Ripley just doing some gardening and painting and buying English pyjamas for his wife and going to dinners with his neighbours.

Aside: It's indicated in the book that lots of the interactions were conducted in various levels of French, which makes me wonder how the translator has managed this for the French edition of this book. ( )

Tom Ripley is now a very contented man, with a beautiful home in the French countryside, a gorgeous and very rich wife, and an excellent art collection complete with very useful contacts in the London art world. But one day an American arrives at the London art gallery, worried that a painting he has bought is a forgery and, since Tom has a couple of paintings by the same artist, the American proposes that they join forces to discover the truth. Tom, of course, already knows the truth and anyway, it’s never ever a good idea for anyone to suggest working together with him…. I think this story is set somewhere in the mid 1960s, or perhaps a bit earlier, and it is full of period details such as the ways in which one made international telephone calls (it involves waiting for the callee to call back) and the ease of travel between a number of European countries. As ever with this series, the main character is absolutely enthralling in his utter lack of compunction about anything and his thoroughly sociopathic nature. I still think the first book, The Talented Mr. Ripley, is the best, but this one carries on the tradition nicely. Recommended. ( )

I think I would more readily die for what I do not believe in than for what I hold to be true...
Sometimes I think that the artistic life is a long and lovely suicide, and I am not sorry that it is so.
