    An amazing novel I was a le Carre fan coming in, but this book s explorations of identity and morality blew my mind while simultaneously blowing up lots of other stuff It s a story about Zionists, Palestinians, and bombs And love and identity and morality It s complex as hell the identity stuff is on a PK Dick level, but goes there without drugs The morality issue may be closer to common, as we are given Palestinians and Zionists and why they are who they are, but le Carre never overtly po An amazing novel I was a le Carre fan coming in, but this book s explorations of identity and morality blew my mind while simultaneously blowing up lots of other stuff It s a story about Zionists, Palestinians, and bombs And love and identity and morality It s complex as hell the identity stuff is on a PK Dick level, but goes there without drugs The morality issue may be closer to common, as we are given Palesti...

    I found this novel extremely disturbing, and the movie version starring Diane Keaton evenso Perhaps it s because I m half Jewish, and family discussions regularly circle back to Israeli Palestinian politics The basic scenario in the book is that Mossad are concerned about a successful series of bombings carried out against Israeli targets by a Palestinian terrorist group They want to infiltrate the organization, and recruit a young actress to help them There are two scenes near the beg I found this novel extremely disturbing, and the movie version starring Diane Keaton evenso Perhaps it s because I m half Jewish, and family discussions regul...

    I have a vague memory of a column by George Will, back when I used to read him, about this 1983 novel If memory serves, Will was upset that le Carr depicts the Palestinians as having a point of view, or maybe of just acknowledging that they exist He likened the book to a Harlequin romance He hated the dust jacket, and the typeface I don t like any of the choices we re given in the Middle East choose one side or another, or say a plague on both your houses, or ignore it altogether Le Car I have a vague memory of a column by George Will, back when I used to read him, about this 1983 novel If memory serves, Will was upset that le Carr depicts the Palestinians as having a point of view, or maybe of just acknowledging that they exist He likened the book to a Harlequin romance He hated the dust jacket, and the typeface I don t like any of the choices we re given in the Middle East choose one side or another, or say a plague on both your houses, or ignore it altogether Le Carr doesn t like them either, and offers no answers, easy or otherwise He sees the big picture so well I wonder how well he sleeps.Having only just read this novel, I m surprised that it was so controversial It could probably be published today without creating a ripple Unfortunately, though, it would not feel dated.I also remember not liking the movie with Diane Keaton It seemed bowled over by its own premise Wow, an actress, prone to fabulation, playing a part in real life A and forgetting that...

    This is one of the hardest books for me to get through I m still working it out, and it s worth it I don t like slow reads normally, and this one started out all over the place Boring, but if you get through the first several chapters, it gets much better I AM interested in the girl s downslope into terrorism, if that is really what it is I will let you know My usual style is to finish a book in two to three nights This one is taking forever I cant give up on it though There is a good s This is one of the hardest books for me to get through I m still working it out, and it s worth it I don t like slow reads normally, and this one started out all over the place Boring, but if you get through the first several chapters, it ...

    His best, and for me that s saying a lot Intricate, atmospheric, penetrating and going to a gripping climax The love interest in The Night Manager is less manipulative, and I like that book better as a romp, but Drummer Girl is exceptional in its politics and its Shakespearian psychology.
