Absolute Friends Absolute Friends by John le Carré

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
I love John le Carre. His books Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Our Game, Smiley’s People & The Night Manager are some of my all-time favorite reads. But Absolute Friends wasn’t up to his (admittedly high) standard. It was lugubrious until about the last 2 chapters of the book & I pretty much slogged through it. The characters weren’t likable (with the exception maybe of his Turkish significant-other & her delightful pre-teen son, about which there was precious little in the plot).
