Some of the most important themes that the novel explores are pity, religion, suffering, and responsibility. The author is highly admired for encapsulating the essence of an exotic setting in a single book. The writing style of the novel was also appreciated by both critics and readers. Henry Scobie is the complex protagonist of the novel. He happens to be a weak man but he possesses good intentions. He feels a deep sense of pity but lacks self-awareness, and it causes the doom of his good intentions. Having written the book, Greene actually thought that it was going to be a failure, but it proved to be one of the most celebrated works by him.
