    1. “First the priests arrive. Then the conquistadores.”----James Clavell, a British novelist, screenwriter, director and World War II veteran and POW Michael Arditti, an English writer, has penned a thoroughly riveting thriller The Breath of Nightthat takes the readers not only back in time but also to a beautiful and exotic destination of the world, Philippines, where a young priest travels to Manila to find out exactly what happened to his would-have-been-uncle-in-law, who went to Manila to b [...]


    2. Literally thrilling. This is as good as any thriller and yet by a 'literary' writer - and the story enthralls and engages and yet it makes you think.So, is he good or is he bad, you decide then? Posh priest is murdered in the Philippines and equally posh family go and look into the whole sad tale. And it becomes like a Graham Greene book with twists and turns and our young hero ends up with a cast of characters that lead him down the garden path - well, the rubbish dumps of the poor. It has Imel [...]


    3. A top-notch literary thriller. Like Heart of Darkness, the novel journeys into a mysterious country (in this case, the Philippines) to find a larger-than-life character: missionary and martyr Julian Tremayne. Treading the fine line between Conrad’s horror and Dickens’s melodramatic social conscience, Arditti succeeds in fostering empathy through a hard-hitting fictional commentary on modern Christianity.Full review in December 2013 issue of Third Way magazine.


    4. This book took me the longest time to get through of any book I have given 5 stars to. It is classified as a mystery but it is really a questioning of theology and in particular the teaching of the Catholic Church, and what role they play in regards to government policy. Particularly when the government is behaving opposite to catholic teachings. How complicit is the church with what the government is doing, and what role should the church play.The story is about Julian Tremayne a British priest [...]


    5. A time-shift thriller set in The PhilippinesA book set in the Philippines that goes where not many contemporary British writers have ventured…Set in the 1970s / 80s (the era of the Marcos dictatorship) and the current day, the book – in alternate chapters – follows the progression of Father Julian from priest sent out as a missionary from the UK to the Philippines and Philip, his would-have-been-nephew-in-law (had his niece not been killed in a car crash…) who has been dispatched by the [...]


    6. Honestly I tried, but I just couldn't get into this book. I felt no connection to the characters, and I did not find the story carried me along. I was hoping I would but no such luck.


    7. This review also appears on my blog silashruparellLessons from fiction – Part 3: The role of institutions in alleviating the poverty trapManilaMy one liner: The Breath of Night by Michael Arditti digs deep into the Philippines, its culture, people, and politics, to give us a thorough examination of the conscience and appetite of the Church to help the poor and disenfranchised through armed struggle. A morality tale that sits in the grey area between good and evil.This is the third in an occasi [...]


    8. Michael Arditti is a remarkable novelist, and this is a remarkable novel. He is remarkable, because he writes seriously about faith, and the problems it brings. The novel is remarkable because it takes us deep into situations which most of us will only know intellectually - the crass juxtaposition of flaunted wealth and extreme poverty in the Philippines with all its ensuing corruption, forced depravation, violence and tragedy; and the never-ending question of how Christians should react once th [...]



    9. After the death of his fiancee Julia in a car crash, Philip Sawyer travels to the Philippines at the behest of her family to investigate the death of Julia's uncle Julian, a Catholic priest who died 30 years earlier, in suspicious circumstances. His aim is to provide support for the canonisation of Julian, whose devotion and ability to perform miracles has been heavily supported (if anecdotally). Philip is thrust headfirst into the underbelly of Filipino society and, as a classic 'innocent abroa [...]


    10. There are two stories in this novel and two protagonists. One is Julian, a priest in the 1970s and '80s, trying to practice Jesus's teaching in an unfair society; the second is Philip, researching the priest's life thirty years later.From an interview in The independent:Talking about his last novel, The Breath of Night (2013), which was set in 1970s Philippines (he actually met Imelda Marcos while researching it), Arditti explained that “both [characters] are trying to do what’s right, withi [...]


    11. I’ve just finished The Breath of Night by Michael Arditti. It is a wonderful book and a very sensitive interpretation of religious feelings and the interplay of reality and fiction. Julian Tremayne scion of an old English landed family and a priest may or may not have displayed signs of a saint. His stay in the Philippines was certainly controversial and he may or may not have supported or joined left wing guerrillas. Hapless Philip is send to the Philippines by Julian’s sister and her husba [...]


    12. Michael Arditti is always worth reading and this is no exception. It is set in the Philippines of thw 1980s and twenty years later. It is told by alternating narrators the letters home from of the priest in 1980s - Julian Tremane and bu Philip Seward who goes out to the Philippines to investigate his death and the possibility of him being beatified. The changes in Julian particularly are well drawn and the mystery of what he became and how he died are both convincing and gripping. It is not a ch [...]


    13. Wow, what an incendiary book about the Philippines during the Marcos regime and after! The constant shift between time frames work well, as it shows so clearly 'plus ça change' and the afterword is a masterpiece in apologetics.I hope, for the sake of the Filipinos, that the situation has improved a bit since the period described. The Catholic church, landowners, foreign powers don't come out of it unscathed either. An interesting political book, with very vivid (and harsh and poignant) descript [...]


    14. Set in the Philippines. Dual voices and dual times, one of a British catholic priest who turns revolutionary while on mission there in the 1970's and the other is a British nonreligious young man being paid to explore the possibility of declaring the priest a saint by the priest's family in the 21st century. Learned a lot of new vocabulary words with this one! A good historical exploration of an exploited nation and its people by the powerful .


    15. A British journalist goes to the Philipines to investigate the case of a proposed canonization The role of the Church, State, corruption in both, freedom fighters and day to day lives of rich and poor are explored. Nothing is black or white. A well written - sort of a "thoughtful thriller " --- if there is such a thing. A very thorough review can be found on silashruparell


    16. A compulsive story, set in the nightmare world of the Phillipines. Very well told, complex, both about faith and about a nation and society so different and strange compared to our own. Well worth the time.
