On its publication in 1964, John le Carré’s The Spy Who Came in From the Cold forever changed the landscape of spy fiction. Le Carré combined the inside knowledge of his years in British intelligence with the skills of the best novelists to produce a story as taut as it is twisting, unlike any previously experienced, which transports anyone who reads it back to the shadowy years in the early 1960s, when the Berlin Wall went up and the Cold War came to life.

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold was hailed as a classic as soon as it was published, and it remains one today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Refreshing Ony my side, I liked this book because it critics the Intelligence Corps of the British Army. Also, it shows new and more realistic version of spies. Finally, I recommend you to read this book because it's very refreshing comparing to James Bond aventures.

Editorial Reviews

"Let me be specific: I think the man deserves the Nobel." - The Globe and Mail“As the greatest spy novelist of our times John le Carré has always used as the bedrock of his craft the strange ways people are bound to each other.” - Calgary Sun“In a world where villains can bleed tragedy and heroes may not be so heroic, le Carré is still our keenest arbiter.” - Winnipeg Free Press“No other contemporary novelist has more durably enjoyed the twin badges of being both well read and well regarded.” - Scott Turow“Le Carré, always an intriguing blend of patrician and populist, gives voice to all our contempt for hot-money deals.” - Independent (UK)“I would suggest immortality for John le Carré…. May he write forever!” - Chicago Tribune“A literary master for a generation.” - Observer (UK)"The best spy story I have ever read." - Graham Greene"Le Carré is more than just a great storyteller—he captures the Zeitgeist itself." - Tom Wolfe"Le Carré is simply the world’s greatest fictional spymaster.” - Newsweek"He is one of the half-dozen best novelists now working in English." - The Chicago Sun-Times"No other contemporary novelist has more durably enjoyed the twin badges of being both well-read and well-regarded." - Scott Turow"For my money, le Carré is the equal of any novelist now writing in English." - Guardian (UK)"Le Carré is one of the best novelists—of any kind—we have." - Vanity Fair
