Smiley’s People by John Le Carre

John le Carre’s Smiley’s people follows George Smiley as he tries to piece together the murder of his friend and British spy, Vladimir. As he does so he uncovers a sinister plot about his old nemesis Karla the Russian Director of the secret service and a Russian immigrant named Maria Andreyevna Ostrakova. That about all I say about the plot about if I say anything more, it will only lead to more question than it will answer. Despite the slightly overcomplicated plot I liked this book, due to the fact the characters are very likeable, meaning that despite the fact I didn’t understand what anyone was talking about I did care about their endeavours. It was dramatic, mysterious and the ending discovery does pay off.
