    A second outing for suave psychopath, Tom Ripley Such a shame Highsmith jumps straight to him being married to a French wife and living in a French villa I d have loved to have been party to that wooing This time, Ripley is involved in an art fraud operation and already Highsmith has realised that if nearly all fiction about art riffs on fraud and identity, then she can go one step further Another deliciously dark offering full of edgy tension and sudden explosions of violence.

    Honestly, I don t understand why people get so worked up about a little murderPatricia Highsmith, Ripley Under GroundWhile I don t believe Ripley Under Ground is quite on the same level as The Talented Mr Ripley it is still amazing to think about on how many levels Highsmith is writing This novel reminds me a lot of Peter Carey s novel My Life as a Fake and obviously Gaddis The Recognitions It also makes me want to explore deeper into the life of Wolfgang Beltrracchi, but that willHonestly, I don t understand why people get so worked up about a little murderPatricia Highsmith, Ripley Under GroundWhile I don t believe Ripley Under Ground is quite on the same level as The Talented Mr Ripley it is still amazing to think about on how many levels Highsmith is writing This novel reminds me a lot of Peter Carey s novel My Life as a Fake and obviously Gaddis The Recognitions It also makes me want to explore deeper into the life of Wolfgang Beltrracchi, but that will have to be another day These novels all explore ideas themes of art, authenticity, fakery, artistic isolation and basic counterfeits of all forms What happens when the poseur becomes a greater poet painter than the original How do we measure art How thin is the line between truth and fiction I do love how fascinated some writers become with the idea of fakes, forgery, doppelg ngers, etc There is a deeper undercurrent here than I ve explored There is Nabokov, Highsmith, Doestoevsky, Carey, Gaddis, etc I d love to find the Urtext on forgery the first fictional exploration Where did the spring of this all come from Anyway, Highsmith deserves to be recognized not just as a hard boiled crime writer, but as a literary genre example of Gresham s law When the gods of fiction made Highsmith, they broke and buried the plates

    The startling thing about The Talented Mr Ripley was finding out what Ripley was capable of, because you found out along with him He wants so much, and over the course of the book he discovers what he can do to get it The problem with Ripley Under Ground is that both of you already know So there are no surprises here You read it because you liked the first one and you want to see Ripley up to his old game You ll get it, but this sequel is less deadly than the first book It s just an excit The startling thing about The Talented Mr Ripley was finding out what Ripley was capable of, because you found out along with him He wants so much, and over the course of the book he discovers what he can do to get it The problem with Ripley Under Ground is that both of you already know So there are no surprises here You read it because you liked the first one and you want to see Ripley up to his old game You ll get it, but this sequel is less deadly than the first book It s just an exciting crime story Highsmith checks the Ripley boxes he impersonates someone, he murders someone, there s confusion not only over who murdered but who s even been murdered the Ripley books are like the Mission Impossible movies for murder , Ripley is audacious and pretentious, as always There s an art forging plot lifted liberally from Dawn Powell s Wicked Pavilion Bizarrely, Ripley seems to have gotten less gay But it s fun and a total page turner If you liked the first book you should certainly go ahead and read this if you didn t you certainly shouldn t

    I knew going into this that the later Ripley novels don t live up to the first one, but I was still curious anyway And it was certainly true that a lot of those elements that made the first novel so enjoyable Tom s very believable rationalizations of his actions, the atmosphere and the tightrope like intensity of the action were largely missing from this book The events in this book take place some 6 or 7 years after the first book Tom has settled down in France with a French wife and lea I knew going into this that the later Ripley novels don t live up to the first one, but I was still curious anyway And it was certainly true that a lot of those elements that made the first novel so enjoyable Tom s very believable rationalizations of his actions, the atmosphere and the tightrope like intensity of the action were largely missing from this book The events in this book take place some 6 or 7 years after the first book Tom has settled down in France with a French wife and leads a life largely of leisure with a few illegal enterprises on the side When one of those enterprises is threatened Tom steps in to save it which inevitably leads tosuspicious deaths andcoverups required on his part It just felt like such a watered down version of the previously vibrant and exciting Tom and the sense of tension was largely missing for me From any other author this would have been a fine thriller, but as a sequel to Ripley it just didn t live up

    This book lacks the intensive character driven analysis of the first Ripley from which the plot derives , and is farplot driven and somewhat formulaic It seems that after 15 years, she decided to revive her career by doing another Ripley, and then had to fish around for a plotline There is nothing terribly wrong with the book she s an expert craftswoman but it s a bit trivial as a result Still, the events of 2 are prelude, in part, to 3.

    Tom Ripley has grown up He is still a conman and a murderer, of course But now, in place of the socially awkward, seething, repressed homosexual, there is a man of a certain suaveness, a man with an apparently healthy, loving, and sexual relationship with his wife, a man of leisure and taste with friends all over Europe And instead of murdering in a rage, lashing out at men who confront him with that desire he won t face, this time Tom can tell himself a plausible story that his crimes are fo Tom Ripley has grown up He is still a conman and a murderer, of course But now, in place of the socially awkward, seething, repressed homosexual, there is a man of a certain suaveness, a man with an apparently healthy, loving, and sexual relationship with his wife, a man of leisure and taste with friends all over Europe And instead of murdering in a rage, lashing out at men who confront him with that desire he won t face, this time Tom can tell himself a plausible story that his crimes are for the greater good, protecting not just his own interests but the interests and reputations of a host of others The result of this maturation is a book that seems initially to have less psychological depth at least with regard to its protagonist than the first installment in his chronicles, The Talented Mr Ripley In contrast to its predecessor, Ripley Under Ground is almost a romp, as Tom gets himself into trouble and out of it, impersonating a dead artist, murdering a nosy amateur critic who threatens to blow the lid off Tom s art forgery operation, burying the body, exhuming it and dumping it to a river, and on and on Where Talented was an origin story, the making of a sociopath, Ripley Under Ground is the continuing adventures of a sociopath It s a great deal of fun But the psychological complexity is still there it s just beneath the surface, hidden in a glamour of symbolism, a cloak of indirectness The splintering of identity, that most Highsmithian of themes, crackles through the pages of Ripley Under Ground Throughout the book, characters impersonate one another, question their perceptions of reality, and even move liminally between the planes of the living and the dead The painter Derwatt, dead by suicide years before the book began, is resurrected first by the forgeries and then by Tom s impersonation of him The painter who makes the forgeries, the guilt racked Bernard Tufts, loses his own identity in the artistic impersonation of Derwatt Tom even thinks that Bernard s Derwatts are, in some ways, better Derwatts than the originals not just better paintings better Derwatt paintings In despair, Bernard announces himself dead and hangs himself in effigy, before eventually killing himself for real or is it murder, Tom wonders, if you drive someone to suicide The bizarre and gruesome transformation of Bernard s remains into those of Derwatt is yet another blurring of identity, one which leaves no doubt as to Tom s tenuous connection to sanity, in case you are as I was temporarily fooled by the apparent normalcy of his life and marriage Even Tom Ripley himself takes a round trip into death, in the chilling sequence that gives the book its title The book concludes very much as the first one did, with Tom s sense of the clock ticking on his freedom The ghosts of the murders he committed in Talented haunt him people still ask him about Dickie Greenleaf, his first victim and his first impersonation And the police inspector investigating the amateur critic s disappearance has noticed that acquaintances of Tom Ripley have an unusual tendency to vanish or die As Tom girds himself to carry out yet another deception, he wills away a chilling sense of imminent defeat, of failure lurking at the other end of the telephone line And because of the closeness of perspective, the great intimacy with which Highsmith lays bare Tom s inner life, as a reader you can t help but want him to succeed, and to find out who he will have to murder next

    I enjoyed thisthan the first book until the ending The story moves along rapidly with Ripley dodges various and increasing number challenges to protect an art scam What I did not get was the acceptance of the characters when Ripley admits to being a murderer.

    Loved the first one This was incredibly disappointing unfortunately If I had to read the word Derwatt onetime I would ve thrown the book across the room.
