Book #26: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

The Spy Who Came In from the Cold

by John Le Carré

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a spy novel. But I didn’t include it in the project because I needed a Bond-James-Bondesque break from all the heavy reading. Instead of the romantic 007 image of espionage, Le Carré provided a realistic look into spy agencies that shocked readers, and questioned whether a moral nation can afford to use borderline immoral spy tactics.

Although many of Le Carré’s works are available in electronic form, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold isn’t one of them. For the reading project, I obtained a new paperback copy of the 1963 original. As for length, it is 212 pages.
