    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBII have read 7 or 8 of Eric Ambler’s novels and they all follow the same basic formula a rather naïve amateur protagonist inadvertently gets mixed up with a gang of professional crooks or foreign agents and somehow – with the odds stacked against him – has to extricate himselfArthur a middle aged overweight former British public schoolboy down at heel and rather lacking high morals has ended up working as a j

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIIf you insist on making your protagonist as spectacularly drab and unsexy as Arthur Abdel Simpson the least you could do is also make him lovable the way le Carré did with the plump pasty dough ball George Smiley Simpson is an unpleasing mix of resentful and obsequious with the personality of an incel despite being married to a stripper The only thing I liked about him was the revenge he exacted for the humiliations of being caned at prep schoolI never forgot and never began to forgive a caning until I had somehow evened the score with the master who had given it to me If he were married I would write an anonymous letter to his wife saying that he was a sodomite and that he had been trying to interfere with young boys If he were a bachelor I would send it as a warning to one of the other boys' parents

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIEric Ambler published his first book The Dark Frontier in 1936 That date falls outside of My Big Fat Reading Project begins in 1940 and somehow I had never heard of him until I was already reading my list for 1959 when I read Passage of Arms I have got some books to fill in but for now I am just reading the books he published since 1959 This one was published in 1962 but since it won the Edgar Award in 1964 I saved it until now The award may have been given in 1964 because the movie Topkapi based on The Light of Day was released in that year Peter Ustinov won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in his role as Arthur Simpson the main character in the bookArthur Simpson is EnglishEgyptian living a life of crime in Greece He has been scamming his way through life as a pimp pornographer and petty thief At the beginning of the book he has fallen into deep trouble involving British

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIInspiration for the 1964 film TOPKAPI Not as entertaining as the movie but mercifully free of Melina Mercouri's hideous laughter

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIThis is what Graham Greene would call an 'entertainment' which is an apt description This was the basis for the 1964 film Topkapi which starred the great Peter Ustinov and it was hard to read this narrative without a picture of Ustinov coming into my mind as the bumbling Arthur Simpson This is a very odd book we the readers do not know what the crooks are up to for three fourths of the book we're as in the dark as poor Arthur There is suspense and great dialogue This is great good fun

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIEric Ambler That’s worth five stars by itself The Light of Day 1962 is that rarest of enjoyments a successful comedic thriller Many writers can do thrillers good bad and forgotten but very few can do a thriller with such an infectious sense of humor Arthur Abdul Simpson Ambler’s roguish anti hero narrator seems always in over his head dealing with Turkish authorities no valid passport or with a mysterious group of what? The authorities are focused on political revolt while Arthur is focused on regaining an unwise letter he had signed held by Harper the leader of the group It is only near the end that Ambler reveals just who these mysterious people really are The novel was the basis for the 1964 comedic thriller Topkapi with Peter Ustinov as Simpson In reading the novel if you have seen the movie then Ustinov as the clear image of Simpson is inescapable as with Maximilian Schell as Harper and of co

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBINothing not to like here The character of Arthur is vivid and the plot is entertaining Turkish setting is interesting Funny thing as I was reading I thought of Peter Ustinov as the perfect actor to play Arthur Looked up the film version Topkapi and there he was I've seen the movie 50 years ? ago but didn't remember that Ustinov was in fact the choice Or maybe subconsciously I didI've read at least a couple of the classic Amblers from before WW II Enjoyed them thought I'd enjoy this YesNo need to summarize plot the intro to the book in Goodreads does that

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBIThis was a fun read and a bit of a surprise too I’ve had this on my shelf for years It was among those books my mother inherited from my Aunt Mary She belonged to a Book of the Month Club so her collection was wide and varied I was going through them after we returned from our trip last month and noticed the map inside indicated a trip to Istanbul so I bumped it up to the top of my To Read pile and was immediately taken with the fun approach and tension of the story It got me from the first sentence “It came down to this if I had not been arrested by the Turkish police I would have been arrested by the Greek police” Isn’t that a great opening line? It really sucks you inI also learned it was the source for the movie Topkapi 1964The book is completely different but

    The Light of Day eBook ✓ The Light eBook ð light epub, The Light mobile, The Light of Day MOBII am delighted to find that as late as 1962 Eric Ambler had the stuff to create a novel like The Light of Day with its dark humor It begins with a real anti hero Arthur Hamed Simpson an Anglo Egyptian with an expired passport who lives in Athens by among other things petty theft and guiding toursIs this a spy novel? It certainly looks like it when the mysterious Mr Harper nabs Arthur in the act of stealing 300 worth of American Express travelers cheques and talks him into driving a Lincoln Continental to Istanbul The fun begin
