A profound book, that surpassed all my expectations A hell of a ride from the first page till the last word It s a cold and dark book which is written very intelligently It was hailed as one of the best among the world s top classic espionage books ever written And, now that I see in hindsight, it has truly surpassed all the spy thrillers, in terms of quality and scope, that I ve read before reading this one and it has now climbed the ladder to reach the top in my all time favorite list.H A profound book, that surpassed all my expectations A hell of a ride from the first page till the

production at the Tennessee Performing Arts Theater I have actually seen a musical on Broadway Rock of Ages and I was impressed But this was something else entirely I was awestruck by the talent the singing, the acting, the stage production This is the novel that placed John Le Carr firmly on the path of fame and fortune It was his breakthrough novel and 50 years later he was still telling people it had nothing to do with his previous job in the Secret Service that it was a figment of his imagination only that had it been based on any facts whatsoever, it would never have been allowed into publication.None of that registered at the time with the media and critics And those old rumours still hang in shabby tatters to this day This Perhaps the greatest spy novel ever, Le Carr has us in the heart of the cold war with a dicey exchange of spies It is chilling as cold as the title and realistic and hair raising A true classic I think if I had lived throughof the Cold War I would have enjoyed this bookEven though it is not a very long book, I found it somewhat slow Also, it was a fairly complicated story that had me confused and going back to figure out if I missed something I may have given it two stars, but the ultimate point and climax of the story was interesting I kept having to clear my mind and put myself back into the serious mentality of the Cold War I am too used to the James Bond Hollywood I think if I had lived throughof the Cold War I would have enjoyed this bookEven though it is not a very long book, I found it somewhat slow Also, it was a fairly complicated

better for it There are no car chases, gadgets, tuxedos, martini s, or large breasted women walking out of the ocean throwing their long locks back over their pretty faces This is so far away from the exotic travels of 007, mainly taking in the sights 4.5 to 5.0 stars Okay to begin this review I want to point out that, except for a number of Tom Clancy novels, I have only read a handful of spy thrillers so what impressed me about this book may be pretty typical stuff in the better works of the genre Also, I have not seen the movie adaptation based and knew nothing about the plot coming in a

For a book published in 1963, once you get past some obvious anachronisms e.g., the Berlin wall, who the bad guy are, the sense of optimism that the world may not be totally fucked.sorry couldn t resist , the book did not feel dated at all I was absolutely captivated from the opening scene to the incredible ending and I highly recommen What do you think spies are priests, saints, and martyrs
