HIGHSMITH PATRICIA (2008), Ripley's Game, Penguin Readers Level 5, B2 2300 headwords
Pablo Fernández, 2ºBachillerato EFL

Tom Ripley was a healthy and happy man who enjoyed being at parties. But his life turned upside down when he helped Jonathan Trevanny to kill two Italian men. From that moment on, he began to feel nervous, because he couldn’t actually kill both, one of them survived and gave Ripley’s description of him to the Mafia.
The part of the book I liked the best is when Jonathan thinks about whether it is worth killing someone and he finally decides it is. Here we can see human cruelty and what a man can do for money.
I would recommend this book to people of fourteen and over.
