  1. I ve read a few of the Smiley novels over the years and generally liked them It is a mystery to me why, now, I have embarked upon the journey of reading them all in order.The plot, of course, is superb, and the characters convincingly three dimensional Two unrelated items deserve mention 1 DO NOT skip the Preface, in which the author charmingly explains how the Smiley novels came to be Absolutely fascinating.2 The diction and idiom are markedly British here than in the later Smileys I ve read wr [...]


  2. Having read almost all of the works of John Le Carre, I decided to read this, his first novel, where the character is first introduced I felt like I was getting reacquainted with an old friend The author s writing style was superb and worth savoring in even his first books This was followed later in his masterful Karla trilogy with Smiley again as the principal character Le Carre was an unknown writer at the time and did not become the famous spy thriller author until he published The Spy Who Ca [...]


  3. Smiley was no material for promotion and it dawned on him gradually that he had entered middle age without ever being young, and that he was in the nicest possible way on the shelf from CALL FOR THE DEADI ve been a tremendous fan of John le Carr s George Smiley for years How could one not be, especially after having seen the BBC s exemplary television adaptations of


  4. Having enjoyed the Smiley trilogy Tinker, Tailor Honorable Schoolboy Smiley s People and enjoyed them immensely Call for the Dead is a prequel of sorts that introduces you to some of the main characters earlier in their careers If you re a le Carre fan you will enjoy this book If you re new to le Carre this isn t a typical spy thriller it s a leisurely journey with George Smiley as he unravels the case systematically, eliminating suspects methodically The book was written quite a while ago so so [...]


  5. I wrote this for the other DVD of A Murder of Quality I can no longer recall if this is the first of the Smiley character novels by John Le Carre or whether it is Call for the Dead Doesn t matter, both are great stories that get foreshadowed by the even greater story of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and the even greater production of the story by Sir Alec Guinness as Smiley in the PBS series of Tinker Tailor Nevertheless, this is still a great story and well acted movie Eclipsed by the other produc [...]


  6. I am in no way a LeCarre completeist I started with Tinker Tailor after watching the glorious BBC series greatest TV dramatisation ever Considering buying the new novel, I decided to read the Spy who came in from the cold, on which the new book is based, and which I was aware was a Smiley novel I was surprised to find two earlier books.In this, the first Smiley book, he interviews Fennan, a minor foreign office official about his communist party past The interview goes well, and Smiley tells him [...]


  7. This was the first of the George Smiley stories, set in Britain during the late 50s I would imagine When talking in money terms, it is old pounds and shillings It also has a wonderfully atmospheric feel of Retro London and a good old foggy pea souper.I had read the Karla trilogy of George Smiley which takes place in the 1970s I also read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold in which George Smiley has a minor role That is set in the 60s Therefore, I was compelled to learn of this wonderful character [...]
