I found this pretty disappointing. There was a lot of talking, and not much action. I mean it's a spy novel! I understand that you have to lay the backstory. You have put some time into foundation. But eventually you want stuff to HAPPEN. And there wasn't that much action. Even in the climactic final scene, not much really happens. It's like, "Oh, you're the traitor....Yeah I thought you were the traitor....Bad traitor, bad traitor." There really wasn't much more to it than that. I still want to read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, but I'm hoping it's either better or shorter.
