review Call for the Dead ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook John le Carré classic novels deftly navigate readers through the intricate shadow worlds of international espionage with unsurpassed skill and knowledge and have earned him and his hero British Secret Service Agent George Smiley who is introduced in this h. He learnt what it was never to sleep never to relax to feel at any time of day or night the restless beating of his own heart to know the extremes of solitude and self pity the sudden unreasoning desire for a woman for drink for exercise for any drug to take away the tension of his lifeWhile this isn t my first John le Carr novel The Russia House holds that distinction it is in fact my first George Smiley book Call for the Dead is also the first in the series of the George Smiley novels and offers a very satisfying introduction to the surprisingly ordinary yet uite honorable little man When I say little I mean in stature He s no looker that s a fact A James Bond type he is not Short fat and of a uiet disposition he appeared to spend a lot of money on really bad clothes which hung about his suat frame like skin on a shrunken toad I have a great image in my head of Smiley now and regardless of his looks I loved this man He s not perfect who is but he s intelligent he has a conscience and he s uite perceptive In a nutshell he is a British spy caught up in a case of intrigue involving the suicide of Samuel Fennan an employee of the Foreign Office in London who also happens to have affiliations with the Communist party But some things don t appear to add up correctly according to Smiley s calculations and he takes it upon himself to corroborate whether this was in fact a suicide Could there be something even sinister going on here He teams up with Inspector Mendel to uncover the truth Those looking for a fast paced espionage thriller will likely be a bit disappointed by this one However if you like me prefer a literary type spy novel with well written and convincing characterizations then this should appeal That s not to say there is no action here because there are certainly some wonderful moments of tension as well as some dramatic run ins with the villains of the story I found this to be smart and exciting enough to keep me completely immersed in the story throughout I m uite certain I could never pull off a double life a life of secrets and treachery even if for a good cause George Smiley is definitely the kind of intelligence officer I could buy into As I alluded to he is not without flaws and often reflects on his position and resultant lifestyle He mourns what life once was and perhaps could be if he had made another choice Always withdrawn he now found himself shrinking from the temptations of friendship and human loyalty he guarded himself warily from spontaneous reaction By the strength of his intellect he forced himself to observe humanity with clinical objectivity and because he was neither immortal nor infallible he hated and feared the falseness of his lifeSince reading this first in the series I jumped to the renowned of the Smiley novels The Spy Who Came In from the Cold although Smiley himself is not prominent throughout on that later It was excellent I will definitely circle back and try to read the one in between which I missed As a matter of fact I plan to read them all They re that good Recommended to those that don t mind a old fashioned and literary type spy novel
