the world without 2 great opposing powers
The thing that has struck me about recent political events was how clearly John LeCarre predicted them. When there is not a strong balance of power in the world, he saw how the US and GB could run away with some untruth they wanted to hear. It is how everyone had a vested interest in believing this lie and start a war for fictitious reasons. It is frightening and I'm not sure why more pundits did not refer to it. I re-read it after the Iraq war reasons were exposed as easily undone lies. It is chilling.

A real Page turner!
I won this book from volunteering in a literacy fundraiser and truthfully, didn't pick it up for years. I was so glad I got the notion to read it this week! I finished it in 2 days, it was so good. I mean, the tailor to the rich & famous would make a perfect spy, right?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
