Our Kind of Traitor by John le Carré
Rate this book
Clear rating
I'd read more le Carré. The writing is nice enough and the characters generally interesting. The story itself lacked something.

Not nearly as compelling as the Dante Club, but the actual research he did is quite interesting.

Enjoyed it, though there are a couple "horror-of-war" bits that are pretty brutal.

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
