A bit dissapointing
The book is interesting. I was dissapointed because I wanted to read a novel about a spy, a spy's life, methods, fears, history... This book is none of these. It is much more a recounting of office-politics, and Philby's rise through British Intelligence (with some huge gaps). There are very few details about Philby's life, what he was thinking, feeling, his fears, or his escape. On the upside, there is some interesting name-dropping, and he isn't politically correct in saying how he feels about certain well known (intelligence/political) people.Was this review helpful?
