A story of an English agent in the middle of the Cold War. Who is chasing who and why... and what happens.

Well. Not quite a James Bond- type of spy story (I was glad to find that out). I've never ever been into spy stories so this one is read solely for the reason for moving on in the list of 1001 books. This one's my 100th, woohoo ;)

As spy genre is a stranger to me I can't tell if this one's particularly this or that in that sense. Even though I'm not a fan and for me the book was occasionally boring, I did read almost non-stop to find out what's going on. And I liked the bits of Berlin :)

The main character Leamas reminds me as a mix of Wallander and James Bond (well, Bond for obvious reasons).

And the end was a bit surprising at first. Or maybe not.

This nice little book arrived in my mail today. Thank you mcsar for sending it to me for the St. Piran's Day exchange. I have read this book before although I must admit it was some years ago and I don't remember too much about it. I am tempted to reread it but I've got so many books to read that I may not do so. I'll keep it in the reading queue for now and see how it strikes me at a later date.
