    One thought on “The Spy Who Came In from the Cold”

    1. I am of two minds now that I have finished The Spy Who Came in From the Cold for the first time I am irritated at myself for having postponed the pleasure of reading this magnificent book for so many years, and yet I am exhilarated and excited too, marked by this unqualified encounter with greatness.I certainly was stupid all these years, for I did not read this book at least in part because I considered it just a spy novel albeit a superb one , and the spy novel at least since Ian Fleming ruine [...]

    2. What do you think spies are priests, saints, and martyrs They re a squalid procession of vain fools, traitors too, yes pansies, sadists, and drunkards, people who play cowboys and Indians to brighten their rotten lives Do you think they sit like monks in London balancing the rights and wrongs Checkpoint Charlie where it all begins.John Le Carre A.K.A David John Moore Cornwell while in college started working for MI5 and then later transferred to MI6 He worked as a consul code for spy for the Bri [...]

    3. This is the novel that placed John Le Carr firmly on the path of fame and fortune It was his breakthrough novel and 50 years later he was still telling people it had nothing to do with his previous job in the Secret Service that it was a figment of his imagination only that had it been based on any facts whatsoever, it would never have been allowed into publication.None of that registered at the time with the media and critics And those old rumours still hang in shabby tatters to this day The co [...]

    4. A few years ago the Broadway musical Wicked came to Nashville and my family and I went to experience this production at the Tennessee Performing Arts Theater I have actually seen a musical on Broadway Rock of Ages and I was impressed But this was something else entirely I was awestruck by the talent the singing, the acting, the stage production As you may imagine, this was not my usual forte Oh, I can walk across a room and avoid dragging my knuckles most days but for the most part a presentatio [...]

    5. A profound book, that surpassed all my expectations A hell of a ride from the first page till the last word It s a cold and dark book which is written very intelligently It was hailed as one of the best among the world s top classic espionage books ever written And, now that I see in hindsight, it has truly surpassed all the spy thrillers, in terms of quality and scope, that I ve read before reading this one and it has now climbed the ladder to reach the top in my all time favorite list.Highly R [...]

    6. I think if I had lived through of the Cold War I would have enjoyed this book Even though it is not a very long book, I found it somewhat slow Also, it was a fairly complicated story that had me confused and going back to figure out if I missed something I may have given it two stars, but the ultimate point and climax of the story was interesting I kept having to clear my mind and put myself back into the serious mentality of the Cold War I am too used to the James Bond Hollywood ideal of spie [...]

    7. Perhaps the greatest spy novel ever, Le Carr has us in the heart of the cold war with a dicey exchange of spies It is chilling as cold as the title and realistic and hair raising A true classic

    8. Fleming gave it a glamorous touch, Ludlum bought added thrills, but le Carr writes of espionage with a cold starkness that is far believable and all the better for it There are no car chases, gadgets, tuxedos, martini s, or large breasted women walking out of the ocean throwing their long locks back over their pretty faces This is so far away from the exotic travels of 007, mainly taking in the sights of airports, road checkpoints, chilly rooms and deserted streets, le Carr shows a Europe linge [...]

    9. 4.5 to 5.0 stars Okay to begin this review I want to point out that, except for a number of Tom Clancy novels, I have only read a handful of spy thrillers so what impressed me about this book may be pretty typical stuff in the better works of the genre Also, I have not seen the movie adaptation based and knew nothing about the plot coming in a condition I highly recommend if you have the chance With that introduction made, I LOVED THIS BOOK For a book published in 1963, once you get past some ob [...]

    10. It s been over 20 years since the Berlin Wall fell, and as someone who grew up in the 1970s 80s, reading about dueling Cold War spies gave me a weird nostalgic rush The Soviets East Germans Damn We used to HATE those guys In this era where decades of misdeeds by intelligence agencies are common knowledge and the notion of elaborate spy games are widely used fictional plots, it s a little hard to imagine how groundbreaking this book was back in 1963 James Bond was in full literary swing and just [...]

    11. I hate everything about spies and spying, whether it s the stupid raised eyebrow perfect martini black tied begadgeted supermodel is in the shower my name is Bollocks, James Bollocks nonsense or the miserable version everybody can be bought there are no morals any in this grey world and also it s always fooking raining, my feet hurt, my dog died, I never have sex and I ll meet you near Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin so you can say something incomprehensible to me and I can back to you and then so [...]

    12. Le Carre s style is quite recognizable Economical in words, rough, laconic Intricate plot, agents, double agents, cat and mouse game Feelings of burnout, cynicism and hopelessness Atmosphere of a constant threat and fatigue, melancholic gray London, claustrophobic East Berlin Everything written in harsh almost impersonal prose what only deepens the feeling of coldness in human relations The Spy Who Came In from the Coldtakes place in the time of cold war and we re following the actions of Alec L [...]

    13. What a marvelous spy thriller this is I can see why it s considered such a classic.I m late to the John le Carr book party, but I ve been enjoying my time here so far I loved his memoir The Pigeon Tunnel, and I thought his novel Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy was brilliant When his latest book, A Legacy of Spies, was released and got positive reviews, I decided to go back and catch up on the George Smiley series.Smiley plays a minor role in The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, but it doesn t matter bec [...]

    14. In the last two years I started watching spy movies tv series and also read a spy thriller by Daniel Silva I saw two movies based on Le Carr s books Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and A most Wanted Man which I enjoyed As a result, I was looking forward to reading one Le Carr book.This is a different kind of spy novel, a smart one with a brilliant plot and some exciting twists There are no hot dudes drinking martinis with a women on each leg, shooting every terrorist in sight Despite that it still [...]

    15. I d like to start by saying woah and various other exclamations of surprise and wonder This was a book that completely changed the way I view spy novels My previous prejudice stems from quite an obvious source Ian Fleming who never gave me anything much of what I would want to read about or what I even find remotely interesting Big guns, fast cars, hot girls surely every teenage boy s wet dream, but not what tends to be my cup of tea.Fleming, like most writers of spy novels, caters exclusively f [...]

    16. This is on the list of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, which means we are to respect it as a Very Important Book and give it a good rating If I m being honest, I guess it deserves this ranking The characters are compelling, the dialogue is good, there are no superfluous scenes, and the whole thing has a creepy and secretive atmosphere that s very compelling But I cannot in good conscience give this than two stars, for the simple reason that, for the majority of the book, I never had an [...]

    17. Okay, I m fully ready to dive into a non stop Le Carr bender These are great spy novels And these are quality books, period The man can write Plus, his experiences in intelligence work paid off HUGE The intricacies of spy networks and secret government agencies are spread over these pages like caviar and go down like a perfectly aged wine Shit damn, this is sweet stuff Now, before you get all amped up, John le Carr does not write James Bond stuff There are no car chases and inventive gadgetry No [...]

    18. Having just indulged my sweet tooth with Ian Fleming s spy candy, I sampled the refined pleasures of John le Carr , who wrote a tense spy thriller without any gadgets or heroics or sultry seductresses Instead, Alec Leamas is a middle aged alcoholic on the verge of retirement from the spy game burned out, embittered, and about to be cashiered for a string of failures while running England s spy network in Cold War Berlin He s recruited for one final mission to target the dangerous East German sp [...]

    19. An incredible tale of distrust, fear, courage, integrity, and the enduring nature of human love Truly a Masterpiece

    20. Cold War Era East v West What is your ideology Your guiding philosophy Do the ends justify the means This is a slowly evolving spy novel that by the end will make you question everything you thought you ever knew only slightly hyperbolic This is a smart story, and what s , it is entertainingly thought provoking This starts out somewhat slowly as we get to know Alec Leamas, our protagonist, and follow along as he seemingly is going to seed, and to drink, after a career ending series of events in [...]

    21. I have now finished my re read, and I m not sure if I m happy or not that I didn t remember the ending It s a thrilling story.The way the story is presented what is revealed, what is held back, and the sequence of revelation is so superb Any writer can benefit by outlining the scenes.And of course there are the flawed characters, brilliant and stupid, compassionate and cold hearted, none of them to be trusted, who populate all of le Carre s work.

    22. John le Carr is simply one of the best spy thriller writers of all time He ruminates on the dispensability of human life in the business of intelligence Agents and desk analysts are cannon fodder in the sniping and political machinations of the higher ups Real intelligence work has much less to do with honor and patriotism than practicality and appearances The end always justifies the means and may very well have nothing to do with the national interest whatsoever The overwhelming majority of th [...]

    23. Pssst Over here.The name s Leamus.Alec Leamus Not the most awe inspiring name for a spy admittedly but that is why its so clever see I m just an average man in the street Not pretty, flashy, muscle bound or kitted out in designer gear either like some of my competition Bond has always been a flash git with his radioactive rolex and his under water car thingy You might walk by me on the street and assume that I m someone s pissed up uncle now that, my friend, is a cunning disguise.Us spies have g [...]

    24. Thrillers come in different packages Action thrillers are usually tricked out in bright colors with fancy bows and all manner of bedazzling allure Dressed in somber packaging are the cerebral thrillers This is one of the latter I like both types, by the way It s been a good 40 years since I first read this book My copy is an old dog eared paperback with 75 cents printed on the cover, published in 1963 I was just hoping the glue would hold together long enough to read again without the pages dis [...]

    25. I was trying to figure out how to share my recent woes with my goodread s friends in a review and I was getting nothing All of my recent books have either taken place in Glasgow, or been World War 2 Early Cold War era books, and well none of them really capture the angst of being repeatedly cut off from the internet What s important than my own discomfort compared to anything else, especially at Christmas So anyway, while I was standing on a pay phone on 39th Ave trying to get a person in a cal [...]

    26. This spy fiction is especially recommended since it s written by John le Carre who once worked in the famous MI5 in the UK, he has known his tradecraft well and thus can write this wonderful fiction from his experience Some young or middle aged readers might rarely find his novels readable, this might be the one you should start with one reason is that it is, as well as each chapter, not too lengthy.I first read this novel in my 20 s during my college years, that is, in the midst of the Cold War [...]

    27. It was intriguing to read about the cat and mouse games in this espionage novel which has the reputation of being the best one ever written I thought I should read it to see whether it would prompt me to read of the genre Although I thought it was well written, I cannot say I enjoyed the novel, the atmosphere being so chilling and menacing and the characters so distant and cynical I am sure le Carre intended the novel to be that way and it must have been the reality of that secret society I rea [...]

    28. Excellent Cold War spy novel, with many twists and turns It also puts a human face on the business of espionage, with all the moral ambiguities involved Highly recommended.

    29. There are several important questions one could ask in life For instance where do you get green eggs and ham Why do we have catalogues and not dogalogues Or even why is it that it s a penny for my thoughts but I get my say for two cents worth But one of the most important questions anyone can ask is why should I read this book I now attempt to answer the one question which can never be answered And silence will fall I mean you will understand why this is a book worth reading.At first I myself ex [...]
