(3.5) Cool reading about real spies

Though they admit up front that they essentially change every fact in the narratives, to the point of unrecognizability, still cool to read what it's like to be a 'real' spy in the CIA. (view spoiler)

Would've given higher rating if things were a little better organized. I enjoyed reading from both of their perspectives, but they jumped around in space and time a little too much for me to keep it straight. Couldn't really detect any logic to the order they told them in (perhaps they were truly chronological but had to change names, faces and wars to satisfy the CIA?). I guess it was roughly chronological, but sticking to that would've been a lot better.
