I suppose John Le Carre could write a bad book. I just never have read one. He also is a superior reader and/or actor.
What seems to be different about "Absolute Friends" is that instead of world- weary agents with murky allegiances more contingent on place of birth and chance, this book, in the end, has a passionate point of view. One that many fans of Le Carre may disagree with. Well, I can personally read about spies without becoming one. Highly recommended.
I love mysteries--mainly during the summer; I also enjoy clever humor. This book is just perfect--well read with tongue in cheek. Definitely recommended.
I've only downloaded Parts 1 and 2 and I couldn't enjoy this book more--as a matter of fact, I was thinking of writing the narrator a fan letter, as I've also been delighted by his rendition of the Wodehouse books. Highly recommended.
