Complex but compelling.Avaliado no Reino Unido em 28 de março de 2017
Not the easiest of Le Carre's stories to follow, but Russia is complicated so any story based on Russia's byzantine workings inevitably ends up byzantine. Also feel I've read the actual story before (man meets & falls (in many senses) for woman against backdrop of inter-agency chess game), in a different setting by the same author. I don't find the dePalfrey role as part-time narrator particularly effective. Still a compelling read. Needs to be read very carefully as the story threads are occasionally carried along by just a few words in conversation.

Stick to Genre Writing!Avaliado no Reino Unido em 31 de outubro de 2020
The problem with reading your way through a writer's complete works is that their flaws and repetitions become obvious. le Carre cannot make up his mind whether he wants to be a writer of modernist fiction or genre novels, so he often chooses multiple narrative voices, usually, as in this case switching between the first person and the third person omnisicient. This is at best irritating (as in this novel) and at worst renders the book unreadable (as in the case of 'A Perfect Spy'. le Carre is also repetitive in his characterisation, his protagonist always seeming to be dysfunctional, dissolute, alcoholic and illogically prepared to redeem themselves by sacrificing themselves to save one of le Carre's poorly drawn women. This works well in the case of Leamas in 'The Spy Who Came in From the Cold', less so with Barley in this novel and is simply ridiculous in the case of Jerry Westerby's ludicrous sub-James Bond adventures in 'The Honourable Schoolboy'. Similarly 'The Russia House' includes a second rate Smiley in the form of Palfrey, whose annoying first-person narrative adds little to the book as a whole. That the novel survives these flaws is confirmation that le Carre is a first-class genre writer but a third-rate modernist.
First 2/3rds is a 5, the last 1/3 a 3Avaliado no Reino Unido em 5 de fevereiro de 2019
The book starts off brilliantly with Le Carré's wonderful prose; characterisations, dialogue, observations of Russian life and details. The spy story is fine enough (and the interrogations enjoyable). It's in the love story it goes weaker. It's interesting how obviously difficult it is to write about love and positive emotions - the author can't, and won't use his normal, enjoyingly twisted and often witty, slightly derogatory look at things and people (certainly women). The political conflict on its own isn't enough to bring life to the love part, and that is the part that more and more take over the last section of the book. But I'd read, and thoroughly enjoy, the first 2/3s as they are, again, any day.
Collecting le Carre on Kindle - worth itAvaliado no Reino Unido em 25 de outubro de 2017
Typical le Carre. Barely remember reading this in paperback years ago, but good to revisit and remind myself of why I enjoy le Carre books. It's all so languid - just people interacting. There is no action, sex or violence, but it's still captivating.

A real gemAvaliado no Reino Unido em 14 de novembro de 2015
This book caught me on the hop and had to reread the first two chapters. This book is not quite what I thought it would be and then it turns out to be a spy thriller. A wonderfully convoluted plot which certainly keeps your attention. In fact at times it seems almost humorous.It is a great shame it has taken me so long to get around to reading this considering how many years ago it was published. One of the joys of retirement...catching up on all those books you kept promising to read.
