Better than the Bourne series!

by bookwomanAnnie on Sep 7, 2012

After reading the Bourne Trilogy, and then taking up this book, it is apparent that the Bourne novels were patterned on John le Carre's work. The original story line, places of action are quite similar in both "trilogies." If you like action shoot-outs, full of anger and vindictiveness, go with Bourne. If you prefer a story that is more of a challenge to your intelligent mind, then read LeCarre's trilogy.

If you want a novel that will sharpen your brain, pick up "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy." Following this twisting, turning, incredibly nuanced investigation into the identity of the mole in British intelligence is an excellent exercise in strengthening one's mental acuity. The book is much more than a "whodunit," however. The characters are developed quite deeply, and the reader does get a sense of their lives beyond their work, without going overboard into the realm of soap opera. As a result, neither George Smiley nor any of his supporting characters ever feels like a talking head. As many readers have discovered before me, John Le Carré is a ridiculously skilled puzzle-maker of an author, but his solid prose holds its own along with the intrigue, making for a worthwhile and engrossing read.
