I was so disappointed in this book! I kept reading, hoping it would get better, but for me it just got worse. I could find absolutely no redeeming qualities in any of the characters or the plot ....not that it's necessary to do that to appreciate a book, but these folks were incredibly self-absorbed idiots "retired" British agents post-Soviet Union "collapse") who were unable to adjust to the real world and continued to degenerate into even more dysfunctional beings, consequently developing messianic complexes in leading some kind of "revolution" in the Caucasus. Unbelievable and totally unenjoyable. I apologize if I offended anyone.....I know Le Carre is a brilliant author....I just couldn't wrap my brain around the whole idea.

Leslie This was a very dark period in the life of Smiley. Not the best of this series, i agree, but worth reading if you are a fan.
