I loved his The Constant Gardener because it’s one of those books that clearly change your life. So, I thought his other works would be the same. I was wrong. I was so in love with Our Kind of Traitor (great cover, amazing previous experience with the author, a gift from mom and dad) and then, it was nothing like I expected. You can read a short description here, but, to put it simply, it was a well-researched work on spies, with a slow narration, a plain style and only an interesting female character. I expected something more humane, something like The Constant Gardener and with such an incredible female character as Tessa Quayle but I found something boring and, although now that I’m writing this I realize there is something humane in Our Kind of Traitor too, it was not the same. John LeCarré will never be the same for me.
