really liked it
Read in February, 2001

We are in a new arena of intrigue where the old rivalries of great nations have been supplanted by the ravages of individual greed. We are in a new world of espionage where the habits and rules forged by past generations of spies are put to more shocking use. We are inside the international cartel of illegal arms dealers and drug smugglers, now rising to unheard of power under the command of men whose ruthlessness is matched only by their limitless hunger for unlimited wealth. It is this world, in all its brilliant corruption, that John le Carre now opens up for us. His peerless gifts -- his mastery of storytelling and characterization -- have never been more stunningly employed. In The Night Manager, the hypnotic narrative is charge by a luminous understanding of the paradoxes implicit in our perceptions of evildoing and virtue.

What, you don't think I wrote this review? Yes, Coll wrote it and she has never even read the book.

I have the hard cover headed to Goodwill. Speak up if you want it
