Good Spy Story, but a lot of effort.
on 2 November 2015
I did end up enjoying this book, but it took me a very long time to get into it. It's quite disjointed both in terms of narrators and timeline and it took a considerable amount of effort to keep up for the first half of the book. To the point where I actually gave up, eventually picking it up again when I'd run out of other books to read.
The cast is huge and some characters have similar names, I just struggled to keep up with the storyline.
Really enjoyed the story in the end, but certainly took a lot of concentration to keep up in the beginning. Perhaps its just me!
