    Without doubt the very best performance by John LeCarre The story is beautifully rendered and this excellent work is presented quite brilliantly.John LeCarre has read many of his own books but this is his very best.

    For those who care about the unfolding of human political affairs, especially in 20th Century Europe, this is one of the most important books ever written Although it s a novel, I am convinced that it represents an amalgam of historical truth Above everything, this book teaches those of us who enjoy intellectual freedom never, ever to let it be squandered.

    Koestler became famous for this book which I had not read I was surprised but glad that he did not give his Commuist characters a storybook ending, rather, a realistic sober one It should be in all quality libraries.
