More spies

I liked The Spy Who Came in from the Cold  so much that I got another le Carré novel,   The Looking Glass War.

Once again it is very good, I might find myself burning through a lot of these…

This one is about a different agent, and he so far seems to be surrounded by incompetents. It’s interesting going from The Spy Who Came in from the Cold  where everyone was pure genius and things were subtle and smart, to this one where everyone so far is being an idiot. I wonder if it is just to contrast how brilliant the agent, Avery, is. I hope so, a book full of people screwing up is less interesting to me.

The writing is great either way, though.
