page 27 of 384 of The Death Ship

After watching the film ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ I thought about how unlikable all the characters were, how greedy and dirty and dishonorable the whole lot of them was.

This novel is by the same guy who wrote the book that movie is based on and while I can’t speak for that book, I already sense a similarity of character and world view. Traven is cynical, funny, and flippant.

Interesting stuff.
