    A highly readable and timeless treatise on human nature, the faces of good and evil and survival of the fittest Patricia Highsmith knows how to write in the most distanced manner while making you sink in the depths of this classy psychopath, Tom Ripley, making you like him in the end A truly one of a kind character and writer.

    Most people have not read all of the Ripley series They are all worth reading They are page turners full of suspense and intrigue.

    Years ago, a friend recommended Patricia Highsmith as a writer of black and wicked tales Although I didn t realize it at the time, I had seen the film version of one of her books Strangers on a Train, which I would have agreed was black and wicked Several years later, I saw The Talented Mr Ripley I liked the film and I liked the character, but I came away thinking of Ripley as a conventional con artist On a hunt through a used bookstore looking for Greene s Stamboul Train, unfound, I came acros [...]

    I was supposed to like Tom but try as I might I didn t The setting in Italy was lovely but Tom s character was weak and despite the time it was set and written I couldn t forgive him for killing off his friend or believe that the police would let it rest so easily.

    Tom Ripley is one of my literary heroes Intelligent, suave and sophisticated The perfect conman.

    I readRipley Undergroundfrom this volume Not ready to read other titles in the series yet, but I will someday Didn t like this one quite as much as the first one, but Ripley is still an interesting character to me In this one he has married, lives in a charming house in the suburbs of Paris, and lives a life of leisure A couple of murders.

    I loved the Talented Mr Ripley and would rate that 4 5 stars, but I found that Ripley s character palled as I read each book in the series and, ultimately, I didn t care about him, for him nor about what happened to him.

    All 5 books in this omnibus serve the ongoing saga of the evil, self serving Tom Ripley one of my favorite villains I recommend it highly.

    I enjoyed the first novel The Talented Mr Ripley but I felt that the next story was too similar so it became boring.
