A Trip Down The Secret Path

Perfect Spy Coronet Books ebook

Perfect Spy Coronet Books ebook

A Perfect Spy shocks, provokes, weaves a story of Magnus as he plots the ultimate betrayal. When I say the story is woven, I mean it. The structure is similar to The English Patient, where the story skips back an forth in time and amoung characters. I rate this book highly, much as I had done with other Le Carre books. A perfect Spy, however is not another Spy novel, indeed the suspence is not as central to the plot but the character development is truly epic. Magnus Pym becomes a close relation throughout the narrative, all the good, bad, ugly, and even sometimes boring. A Perfect Spy is a gripping portrait of a twisted life, and the injury of the life a spy.

A Perfect Spy is an unreal, yet believable journey in the life of a Spy. I highly recommend this book, if like me, you enjoy a non-linear story.

    A read this book a number of years ago. After much reflection -- and quite a few more spy novels under the bridge -- I think this is perhaps the best I've ever read. The character development is fantastic, to the point that this book is arguably one of the finest character studies written in English. Trust me on this one...

    The first 100 pages or so of this novel are quite demanding: the time frame is unclear, some characters appear without introduction or context, and the narrator switches from omniscient to first person. The payoff - and it's a big one - comes in the pages that follow. The reader understands just how integral the baffling beginning is to the entire novel.

    This book is both a psychological and stylistic tour de force. It puts to shame so much of today's "serious" fiction.

    The reviews here make clear that John Le Carre's A Perfect Spy is not for all tastes. To my mind, though, it is the finest book of Le Carre's long and distinguished career, surpassing even the iconic The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. I am now reading it for the third time and continue to wonder at its greatness.

    Magnus Pym, the title character, is indeed a perfect spy but a profoundly flawed and unhappy human being. Le Carre tells Pym's story by first telling us the story of his father, Rick Pym, a man at least as interesting and, perhaps, even more deeply flawed than his son. Along the way we learn of Magnus Pym's marriages, his son, his friend and mentor, Jack Brotherhood, and most importantly, his long and curious relationship with a Czech spy, Axel. I hope some of you who have not read A Perfect Spy will do so and that you will love it as much as I do.
