it was ok

As a casual fan of Le Carre, I headed into this novel with mild expectations. Yet, even that minimal emotion was too much. His writing style is excellent, as usual. His characters are well thought out and complex. Everything seemed in place … and maybe that was the problem. It was all so mundane. True, he’s not known for action-packed spy thrillers (and that’s what I appreciate about him), but in this case the dialogue and plot plodded along. Maybe it might pick up the deeper I read? I’ll never know because I ran out of curiosity by pg. 100.
