Enjoyed it. One of my favourite books of last year .
I know there was supposed to be a film coming out - although I've not heard of anything for a long time. Anyone know any more? Has he written anything else yet?
I offer my impressions largely because the book has many positive comments, and I just want to present that not everyone will read this and fail to be distracted by its shortcomings. I say shortcomings in the spirit that almost every book is imperfect and falls short of genius. The failings of this book were very distracting to me. That is a big part of my definition of a failing in a book: that I am wrenched out of the bookworld -- distracted, taken out of my suspension-of-disbelief -- frequently in the course of reading.
I certainly grasp that many readers didn't have this problem with the book.
Naivete: to my ear, the voice read as unskillful and juvenile. Others may find this seamless and intentional. I didn't find it so. Just one view.
Despite all that, there was much to enjoy.
Personally the bit near the end was the main thing that threw me out of the narrative. No lead up to it, not even a hint, and doing what he did with no espionage training of any kind felt, to me, to be a stretch.
