The Talented Mr. Ripley Honestly, I m of two minds on this one The first is just how much fun I had running around with a trust fund buddy and the scam, enjoying 50 s Italy, and especially the really delicious riffs from so many of the great authors doing their thing in the day, the subversion and the dark twist I mean, we re all super familiar with the heroic anti heroic murderer protagonist, and some of us might be extremely familiar with it if they ve read practically any mystery novels or watched ANY tv at all but here it is, one of the first to really start the very popular modern mystery trend from the PoV of the sympathetic murderers We ll ignore how much we love Richard the Third or the long line of True Crime novels or the Penny Dreadfuls, for now This is the world of anti hero worship, after all, thank you Dexter and Darth Vader So yeah, I had a really good time with this I remember watching the movie and have a great time with it, too, in the theater Little did I know that I was missing out on great books, too I m making up for lost time Mistaken identities, con games, great play acting, opportunity, and, of course, seeing the bad guys win What s not to love And so I go to my second mind.Closet homosexuality Th First off, Mr Tom Ripley is no sociopath While he is skilled at social manipulation, this is not out of the need to hide the fact that he has no capacity for emotion Judging by his frequent mood swings, he most likely has some flavor of manic depressive disorder Now, with that out of the way, we can begin.Identity is a tricky business If it was anything but, I wouldn t have found this book nearly as fascinating as I did Murder mysteries are not my cup of tea, and while the setting was delightful in its foreignness and experiencing the story from the culpable person s viewpoint was interesting in itself, these aspects would not have balanced out my lack of interest in the details of the plot Lucky for the book, one particular aspect of the narrator made the story much engaging than it would have been without, one that is encompassed here Being Tom Ripley had one compensation, Since His Debut In 1955, Tom Ripley Has Evolved Into The Ultimate Bad Boy Sociopath, Influencing Countless Novelists And Filmmakers In This First Novel, We Are Introduced To Suave, Handsome Tom Ripley A Young Striver, Newly Arrived In The Heady World Of Manhattan In The 1950s A Product Of A Broken Home, Branded A Sissy By His Dismissive Aunt Dottie, Ripley Becomes Enad Of The Moneyed World Of His New Friend, Dickie Greenleaf This Fondness Turns Obsessive When Ripley Is Sent To Italy To Bring Back His Libertine Pal But Grows Enraged By Dickie S Ambivalent Feelings For Marge, A Charming American Dilettante A Dark Reworking Of Henry James S The Ambassadors, The Talented Mr Ripley Is Up To His Tricks In A 90s Film And Also Rene Clement S 60s Film, Purple Noon.

When Tom Ripley is offered a handsome reward to go to Italy to retrieve Dickie Greenleaf, he accepts and soon finds himself living the good life in Naples with Dickie An obsession blooms and Tom finds himself wanting to be Dickie Greenleaf But does he want to be Dickie Greenleaf enough to kill his new friend I was somewhat familiar with The Talented Mr Ripley because I nearly took a girl to see the Matt Damon version in the theater back in the day We opted to see Dogma instead Anyway, I knew Highsmith wrote Strangers on a Train so I decided to take a crack at it.The Talented Mr Ripley is a tale of obsession, murder, lying, betrayal, and lying In short, it s a wholesome noir tale Highsmith reads like a mannerly Jim Thompson, especially once things start going off the rails Tom Ripley is the protagonist but he s far from a hero In fact, he s probably a sociopath He doesn t seem to be comfortable in his own skin, preferring to live a lie than to be himself He s a liar, thief, and eventually a murderer Since there are of these books, I m guessing he continues his lying murdering impersonating ways.The book is mostly the Tom Ripley show Dickie and the rest of the supporting cast don t have much going on other than the way Ripley manipulates them Actually, having never seen the movie, I was surprised at Dickie Greenleaf s fate considering I expected him and 495 The Talented Mr Ripley, Patricia Highsmith 1921 1994 The Talented Mr Ripley is a 1955 psychological thriller novel by Patricia Highsmith This novel introduced the character of Tom Ripley, who returns in Find all of my reviews at Stars I came upon a little list recently called 17 Books for People Who Hate People and I immediately thought, hey, that s me Mitchell concurred I ended up with a super stinker as my first selection, but luckily I fared better with The Talented Mr Ripley.I knew the premise of this book to be Tom Ripley, an acquaintance of Dickie Greenleaf, is asked by Dickie s father to go to Italy and attempt to convince Dickie to return to the U.S I also knew at some point Tom s developing friendship with Dickie while in Europe morphs into of an obsession and that stuff happens No spoilers on this one, friends That was about it, though I had never seen the movie because this is the most punchable face in all of mankind and I just can t watch his movies Completely unfounded and I m sure Mr Damon is a pleasant fellow, but I want to slap the crap out of him whenever I see him How will I ever deal with the movie version of The Martian Ohhhhhh woe is me I also can t forget to mention the film co starred Goop as the leading lady and, well, eww The one t Rating 4.5 of fiveThe Publisher Says Since his debut in 1955, Tom Ripley has evolved into the ultimate bad boy sociopath, influencing countless novelists and filmmakers In this first novel, we are introduced to suave, handsome Tom Ripley a young striver, newly arrived in the heady world of Manhattan in the 1950s A product of a broken home, branded a sissy by his dismissive Aunt Dottie, Ripley becomes enad of the moneyed world of his new friend, Dickie Greenleaf This fondness turns obsessive when Ripley is sent to Italy to bring back his libertine pal but grows enraged by Dickie s ambivalent feelings for Marge, a charming American dilettante A dark reworking of Henry James s The Ambassadors, The Talented Mr Ripley is up to his tricks in a 90s film and also Rene Clement s 60s film, Purple Noon My Review This nail biting page turner is the first of Patricia Highsmith s novels featuring amoral, mass murdering sociopath and all around bon vivant Tom Ripley.What can I add to the generations of praise heaped on Highsmith s male alter ego What else need be said What delicious evil, what glamourous grue, and told with such economy of language Well, for one thing, Tom s as bent as a bow, and because the book came out in 1955 it wasn t possible to say frankly that he was that way and so was Dickie Greenleaf and Marge was a big ol fag hag and Daddy Greenleaf was sending Tom to Italy in hopes that a cute boy would succeed where a revolted fat I was not a big fan of Highsmith s Strangers on a Train, so I wasn t really looking forward to tackling another of her novels Fortunately, I had a much better experience with Tom Ripley Oh, if only his other acquaintances could say the same Our story begins with Ripley being sent to Italy to talk Dickie Greenleaf, the prodigal son of a wealthy man, into coming home The two guys hit it off, and spend some time bopping around Europe like two Ken dolls on holiday But things turn ugly when Ripley senses his time as Dickie s favorite toy may be coming to an end Written in 1955, this one manages to stand the test of time, and still seems fresh and surprising Highsmith featured her character Ripley in four novels This book has inspired two movies 1960 s Purple Noon and the 1999 version which starred Howdy Doody Matt Damon.This is a damn fine thriller, and one of those make you feel skeevy rooting for the bad guy books On the whole, I enjoyed it very much My only complaint One of the same problems I had with Strangers on a Train how can a female writer create such bland and uninteresting female characters No wonder no one wants to hang out with poor Marge She s not only boring, she s annoying as hell But Ripley s the star of this show, and oh, how he shines I am tempted to follow him into another book just to see what happens next.The Talented Mr Ripley is our Januar UN FALSO QUALCUNO PIUTTOSTO CHE UN AUTENTICO NESSUNO New York anni

The Talented Mr RipleyHighsmith is amazing She alludes to Henry James, plays with Nabokovian style, James Cain s dialogue, and blends it all with a Camus like modern existentialism Plus, the goddess
