Avec "Les hommes de bonne volonté" Jules Romains se lance dans une immense fresque qui fera penser à Tolstoi ou au Galsworthy des "Forsyte". Ces deux premiers romans mettent en place les personnages qui reviendront tout au long du roman. Il y a un assortiment des "types" français du début du 20e siècle. On découvrira rapidement que la sorte "Béret baguette" est en fait très minoritaire.
Dés le premier volume le conflit entre "affairistes" plus ou moins corrompus et citoyens conscients est mis en place. Romains évite l'opposition dogmatique et simplificatrice. Cependant la subtilité n'est pas forcément ici le ressort principal de l'analyse psychologique.
Le crime de Quinette poursuit la trajectoire du premier volume tout en se centrant sur deux personnages singuliers : Quinette et sa victime - un assassin occasionel. Paris tend à devenir le personnage principal du roman. ( )
