I was in need of a fantasy book after reading a three books on teaching and teaching online. My neighbor stopped me on my walk the other day and we ended up talking about books and how he needed to start getting rid of some of his. Me mentioned his John LeCarre books and I said, drop them off if you want… and the rest is history.
It has been a while since I read any John LeCarre but this was another great one. I read it in the evenings to get my mind out of all the “things to do” and to “quiet” my stress & anxiety levels before bed. Yes, spy’s and people getting killed really helped 🙂
Just when I thought I knew what was going on, there would be a twist. Some uncertainty as to what was true or might be true and who was the “good guy” and who were the “bad guys”. I really had to pay attention and because of that I finished this book pretty quickly.
If you like spy novels with twists and you like to be surprised at the end of books, you’ll love this one.
