WE SAY: What better way to start an online book journey than with a proper old classic, set in my hometown of Brighton.

Brighton Rock is a terrific page turner, especially when you consider it is over 80 years old. Graham Greene paints a vivid, seedy picture of Britain in the 30s, packed full of memorable characters and indelible scenes. When I moved to Brighton in the 90s, I couldn’t wait to discover all the locations in the book and the film and I was pleased to discover that so many of them still existed.

I highly recommend this book, a classic novel really shouldn’t be this enjoyable! The original  film, with Richard Attenborough, is definitely worth catching as well.


Gripping, terrifying, an unputdownable read. Discover Graham Greene's most iconic novel.

A gang war is raging through the dark underworld of Brighton. Seventeen-year-old Pinkie, malign and ruthless, has killed a man. Believing he can escape retribution, he is unprepared for the courageous, life-embracing Ida Arnold. Greene's gripping thriller exposes a world of loneliness and fear, of life lived on the 'dangerous edge of things.'

In this gripping, terrifying, and unputdownable read, discover Greene's iconic tale of the razor-wielding Pinkie.

'Brighton Rock when I was about thirteen. One of the first lessons I took from it was that a serious novel could be an exciting novel - that the novel of adventure could also be the novel of ideas' Ian McEwan
