    The Secret Pilgrim Epub ´ The Secret eBook É Ð eBook smrl.me secret ebok, pilgrim mobile, The Secret mobile, The Secret Pilgrim eBookThe phrase invisible writing kept entering my mind as I read le Carré's last Smiley novel which consists mostly of a spy named Ned on the verge of retirement reflecting back on his career Christopher Hitchens used it in reference to an Anthony Powell passage wondering what George Orwell Powell's friend would have been like in the Army Hitchens and I are talking about slightly different things he calls Powell's passage deceptively dense I would adapt it to mean writing that doesn't draw attention to itself that tells you exactly what you need to know without pretense or showiness propelling you forward without you being aware of the mechanisms of that propulsionLe Carré is a genre writer but it's easy not to notice because he's so much better than so many literary writers Only our craven legal adviser Harry Palfrey seemed as usual to have weathered the changes and as I entered Burr's shiny executive suite Palfre

    The Secret Pilgrim Epub ´ The Secret eBook É Ð eBook smrl.me secret ebok, pilgrim mobile, The Secret mobile, The Secret Pilgrim eBook‘The Secret Pilgrim’ is a really set of short stories joined together as the reflections of Ned who after a life of spying now has the role of teaching new recruits Ned reflects on his life as he listens to Smiley giving a speech to his trainees I loved the stories some just simple gentle and sad like the story of Cyril Fruin the clerk being ‘audited’ and others powerful like one of a British spy in South East Asia caught during the Vietnam war Possibly my favorite Smiley so far but one that is probably best read at the end of the series

    The Secret Pilgrim Epub ´ The Secret eBook É Ð eBook smrl.me secret ebok, pilgrim mobile, The Secret mobile, The Secret Pilgrim eBookReading a John le Carre book is like meeting an old very good friend it fills you with warmth And this of course is a Smiley book which is an added bonus In fact after reading the first chapter I just sat smiling happily to myself I knew how enjoyable it would be Though a Smiley book Smiley is not the protagonist He is the framework through which a variety of events are presented Smiley introduces ends comments describes philosophises but it is happening to Ned who relates the eventsand gives his perspective Two events later I realised that le Carre had these stories left over to tell and had chosen this structure to present those stories That something completely banal can become a hug

    The Secret Pilgrim Epub ´ The Secret eBook É Ð eBook smrl.me secret ebok, pilgrim mobile, The Secret mobile, The Secret Pilgrim eBookThis is a collage of old tales an ageing spy tells his students before his retirement Unfortunately the stories were told in the first person voice from a perspective I never connected with Despite his best efforts le Carré couldn’t make me care about Ned not even when he was reminiscing with Smiley Smiley made a cameo and nothing I might have found a couple of the spy tales themselves interesting but they always ended and a new chapter began just as I started paying attention Someone else might think the description of a hardened spook letting go of his secrets and learning to live in a post cold war world is compelling in itself but for me it simply wasn’t enough
