3.0 out of 5 stars Okay if you know what's going on, 6 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Paperback)
I watched Film 2011 where they said that people had watched the film and were reading the book to work out what happened. I thought I would read the book first. Unfortunately I am now going to have to watch the film to try work out what happened in the book.

Very complicated, although The Tailor of Panama by the same author is a very easy read. I would also recommend Our Man In Havana by Graham Greene.

I read the book to work out what happened in the film. I am now going to have to watch the BBC serialisation to help me understand what happens in the book!

Perhaps after I have watched the film I shall also watch the BBC version (and possibly the original film version with Alec Guinness) and I may actually work out what it is all about, but I doubt it. Does anyone have John Le Carre's telephone number?

I have now seen the film and I think I understand it. May read the book again.

The Alec Guinness serialisation is very much the best you are going to find.
