    I still haven t figured out what it is that makes me like John le Carre s works I mean, he s the only one among my favourite authors whose books arethan often overflowing with excruciating tireless amount of detail the writing verging on being boring tedious at times And yet, when I get to the end of it, it all seems worth the effort Okay, maybe not The Russia House I didn t like that one very much And then Le Carre surprises me by something like A Most Wanted Man I still haven t figured out what it is that makes me like John le Carre s work...

    I feel like John le Carre is thought of as the grand old man of spy fiction But his books really aren t what I tend to think of when I think of spy novels they re always about world weary bureaucrats doing grubby things that they know better than to be doing, about...

    This isn t the Le Carre of the Smiley novels Here he deals with the war on terror and I think he is missing the cold war because it doesn t really work The main character Issa, is a Chechen Muslim supposedly smuggled into Germany He is in contact with a lawyer Annabel young, attractive and left leaning, of course Issa has business with Tommy Brue, a British, 60 year old banker whose has money put aside for Issa long story Floating around theses three are a couple of Turkish muslims, wh This isn t the Le Carre of the Smiley novels Here he deals with the war on terror and I think he is missing the cold war because it doesn t really work The main character Issa, is a Chechen Muslim supposedly smuggled into Germany He is in contact with a lawyer Annabel young, attractive and left leaning, of course Issa has business with Tommy Brue, a British, 60 year old banker whose has money put aside for Issa long story Floating around theses three are a couple of Turkish muslims, who are clownish caricatures and various members of the German intelligence community, some of whom we see a lot of and they are given various political rants periodically.Le Carre throws a lot of characters into the mix and the whole is rather confusing and lacking in nuance The Germans a...

    John le Carr at his best is an intricate plotter and storyteller who depicts the spy game as you never see it in Hollywood well, except when Hollywood is making adaptations of John le Carr novels gritty and sleazy and all sharp but blurry edges, full of generally unpleasant people who are rarely acting out of high falutin morality At his worst, he s a cranky old man who s angry at the world, which is what you seem to get in his later novels Which is not to say he s any less of a writer, John le Carr at his best is an intricate plotter and storyteller who depicts the spy game as you never see it in Hollywood well, except when Hollywood is making adaptations of John le Carr novels gritty and sleazy and all sharp but blurry edges, full of generally unpleasant people who are rarely acting out of high falutin morality At his worst, he s a cranky old man who s angry at the world, which is what you seem to get in his later novels Which is not to say he s any less of a writer, but kind of like The Mission Song, another book about a naive POC who gets sold out by unprincipled Western spy masters, A Most Wanted Man ups the ante by having the central figure in this tale, an idealistic, unlettered Muslim, screwed over by half a dozen countries by the end of the book.The action takes place in Germany, one of le Carr ...

    A quandry here the first two thirds of this is dull set up and exposition stuff that doesn t manage to get the narrative flowing A vaguely interesting counter terrorism network is documented and arrayed against a not very interesting suspect and his associates.What keeps you in the book is that this isn t someone s early, earnest attempt at a suspense novel this is a late work, from master John le Carr , who certainly knows his way around the c...
