This review is from: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (Paperback)
This book by John Le Carre was a bit slow in starting but then the plot quickened and as I read I thought I was on the journey.
I thought there were two many characters in the book and as a result I believe this is why the plot was slowed down.
Alec Lemas I thought was a shady character and the girl called Liz who worked at the library I believe really loved him and the two met because Alec worked at the library. Liz's colleague at the library was a very strict woman and as I read you could tell she did not like Lemas.
The end of the book was very surprising and I won't spoil it for anyone who has not read it but the book was not bad.
