    L'onorevole scolaro By John le Carré Attilio Veraldi


    In the review I wrote for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy I mentioned that it took me a while to accustom myself to the spy jargon as well as many of the British idioms It gave me a very strange feeling to start reading this episode 6 in the George Smiley series and discover 1 the British idioms are offset by the fact that the Circus centre of espionage in London is balanced, and often explained by the Cousins their American counterparts, based in Langley, Virginia and 2 the definitions of the spy [...]

    Popular opinion has it that this is the weakest of the three Karla novels I thought it was a masterpiece, and a ambitious novel than Tinker, Tailor.It is very different from the last book suddenly there is this unexpectedly huge scope of Southeast Asia to go alongside the muted meetings in grey London office rooms I can well understand how some readers might have felt it was two books jammed together, but for me the contrast worked perfectly and I was riveted by how brilliantly Le Carr unfurls [...]

    I m a longtime reader of the espionage genre beginning as just a lad and although I massively enjoyed all of John LeCarre s earlier works and particularly his George Smiley series I must call out The Honourable Schoolboy for especial recognition This penultimate work of that series is really the triumph of LeCarre s career the point at which he reached the full breadth and scope of his powers Afterwards although he enjoyed further achievements I suggest that he never again eclipses this colossal [...]

    , Le Carre, noir , .

    I and the public knowWhat all schoolchildren learn,Those to whom evil is doneDo evil in return W.H Auden Yet it s not for want of future that I m here, he thought It s for want of a present John le Carr , The Honourable SchoolboyWell sport, this was a messy, sometimes uneven AND occasionally a plodding novel but I absolutely loved every single word of it This is the second book of le Carr s Karla trilogy Perhaps, the greatest spy trilogy ever While people focus on the first book, Tinker, Tailor [...]

    One of the few bright spots is how the author wrote the 1970s colonized Hong Kong, I also enjoy how the author described the international spy network and how those spies work, but all the good things I have to say about this book end here The characters are rather flat, the plot and the war among spies slow paced and uninteresting In the end I don t care what might happen to any of those characters So it s a disappointed 2 stars.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a tough act to follow, but I must admit I was expecting At first, I thought that s exactly what I was getting but then the mind numbing second third happened and I was lost in a way I never was in Tinker Tailor I still don t have a clear understanding of what happened in the book or with my interest in it.All I know is that I got sick of reading about Jerry I got sick of Guillam s overdone fawning I got sick of the female characters including Connie portrayed as lit [...]

    John le Carr calls Hong Kong the world capital of espionage of the seventies There on the invisible battlefields the unseen combats are being fought But the invisibility doesn t make the m l es less cruel Clandestinity just makes spy battles much psychologically complex A redhead, which was half way to whoredom for a start Not enough breast to nurse a rabbit, and worst of all a fierce eye for arithmetic They said he found her in the town whore again From the first day, she had not let him out o [...]

    This is one of the greatest spy novels I ve ever read It s a powerful, ambitious, satisfying sequel to the very great Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy The plot concerns the Circus British espionage unit tracking down a Soviet operation in the far East Smiley rebuilds the shattered agency and hurls it into the fray Without spoilers I can assert that The Honourable Schoolboy takes place largely in south and southeast Asia, with long stretches back in London, and an ultimate focus on Hong Kong Every lo [...]

    I love le Carre, and I love the other two books in the Karla Trilogy, but for some reason this one didn t do it for me I found the writing flat, devoid of le Carre s usual angry incisiveness, and the characters seemed like wooden dolls than people Maybe I ll revisit it some day, but let s just say, I m in no rush.

    After Tinker, Tailor, le Carre s fans waited many years for the follow up The Honourable Schoolboy When I first read the book 35 years ago I recall being a little disappointed that the book wasn t Smiley centric, but in retrospect le Carre s shift in focus from treachery within the Circus to the exotic East was what the series needed lest it choke on its own incestuous fog.The Hong Kong of the early 1970s in the book wasn t very different from the Hong Kong I encountered in the early 1980s Many [...]

    I d wanted to read the George Smiley books since watching the BBC adaptation of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy back in the 1970s I also subsequently loved the 2011 film adaptation directed by Tomas Alfredson, which I saw in the cinema, and rewatched recently Everything I had heard about the source material suggests joy and wonder would await and, I m pleased to report, that s exactly what I have found so far I have read the series, up until The Honourable Schoolboy , in quick succession Call for t [...]

    This the second in the Smiley Karla trilogy the only one as far as I m aware that hasn t been dramatised and as such the least known of the three Yet it is my favourite by far The main character is not George Smiley although he is present in much of the novel but Jerry Westerby, one of the Occasionals as they are referred to foreign correspondents who do a little spying on the side As such, it is altogether human than either Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy or Smiley s People the reader is engaged [...]

    A John le Carre novel set in Hong Kong and Southeast Asia Yes, please This is the second volume in the Karla trilogy, and as such is the direct sequel to Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Do not expect of the same, however This is, after all, John le Carre, and he rarely, if ever, writes the same novel twice.The le Carre novels that I have read tend to make use of two general frameworks There are the whodunit style stories, set primarily in London, such as Call for the Dead and TTSS These are, effectiv [...]

    Apparently, many people read John Le Carr s spy novels for a glimpse at what the world of international espionage is really like in other words, they read them like a kind of journalism about the shady world of Intelligence Services And there certainly is something to it we ve grown used to a realistic perspective on secret services, but we can still imagine what it must have been like to read a novel like The Spy Who Came In from the Cold for someone whose idea of spy thrillers were Ian Flemin [...]

    A superb story, multifaceted with wonderfully evoked characters and settings The pinnacle of the Smiley books thus far Michael Jayston s narration is flawless as always in the Audible version.

    The Karla Trilogy is not a true trilogy but a marketing spin and this book proves it in ways than one.To start with, this book has little connection with the Karla Smiley story of Tinker, Tailor Yes, Karla is mentioned as linked to the spies being chased but with no other role whatsoever Smiley team is there but as a sideshow to the juvenile story of a fringe spy falling in crazy love over a single meeting, his Southeast Asian ventures and a complex capture tale where one is never clear what t [...]

    Crime noir been given its due, with Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, and James M Cain all winning Nobel prizes haven t they read Cain s Serenade , I nominate for the award the spy genre s only serious candidate, John le Carre More, I nominate The Honourable Schoolboy as the best spy novel ever written, and the author himself doesn t put it in his top four.The Honourable Schoolboy, second in the Karla Trilogy, coming after Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and before Smiley s People, is all about J [...]

    Super Ripping But you see, sport, this is a case of le Carr being himself but so , as they would say at Sarratt To the book s great detriment The writing is not that great for there to be so much of it But the book s main shortcoming is the titular character, a journalist aristo cum spy named Westerby, dispatched by Smiley on a mission in the south east Annoying by half, in the final part of the book he spoiler inexplicably turns out to be an utter cretin, when the plot so dictates, successfull [...]

    Honourable School Boy Another good production by the Smiley Players This radio drama than a straight forward audio book The cast is great, especially Simon Russell Beale who plays Smiley It is of morality tales that will make you think If you like Dowton Abbey, you might want to check this out as Hugh Bonneville has a large part.

    164, 164, 228, 340, 433, 686.This is the sixth in the tentative Smiley series I say tentative because the series is mostly a marketing trick and the second of the Karla Trilogy within that also a marketing ploy although believable.The numbers above are the page counts in the editions I read of the six books so far It doesn t take a mathematician to spot a trend It is clear that THS is substantially longer than everything that has led up to it And I have to say that I am not completely sure this [...]

    At times this was le Carre s best work The chapter of the bureaucrats arguing over what to do was a triumph of showing government pettiness at it s best But it did go on a bit, Westerby was just too smart, Guillam needs to find a new line of work and the women are trinkets Of course the question of why did any of this matter was raised as George Smiley seemingly goes back into another retirement.

    I have read two classical espionage novels this year that puts into play the canon that would follow Ashenden by Somerset Maughan and The Gadfly by Ethel Voynich From these two novels it went two ways glamourous settings people, and heroic deeds or covert activities, lots of watching and reporting and a dark side involving governments and betrayal The former style is admirably covered by James Bond, or The Saint the former became the style favoured by LeCarre.I like LeCarre a lot He attacks the [...]

    I tried so very hard to like this book, I really did It had been recommended to me as a good example of an espionage book by a master storyteller, and I thought that it might be a good airplane read to boot During the past two weeks when I ve been traveling, I have faithfully labored through this work, and hard work it was Initially I was intrigued by the details of spy tradecraft, but those details became quickly tedious The story itself is involved and clearly a part of a larger and longer tal [...]

    I really wanted to get into this for my holiday The plot was set in Hong Kong, so what could be appropriate, and initially I was quite gripped by the characters and potential story But as the novel progressed I found I just wasn t interested enough in the minutiae of the spying world in the way that Le Carre so clearly is, how it operates and what legwork needs to be done in order to unearth the Red under your Bed Which was enough of a pity that I might go back to the book soon, because I didn [...]

    Seriously, I can t understand why le Carre is not even popular It may that he is just too good of a writer This book was so dense, so expertly written, and so visual, I could not wait to get back to it Yet, I recommended it to several people and almost no one shared my passion for the story I feel the problem may be that there is a lack of early action in the story, instead, le Carre takes his time with character development which he probably does better than any other modern writer Le Carre is [...]

    There are two LeCarre s the first from 1961 to 1971 Good, though nothing memorable Then the second, from 1971 to the present Bitter, mediocre, overlong, padded, anti Western Judeo Christian, pretentious, and whose characters only ever had one voice Namely they all sounded like LeCarre LeCarre didn t just want the commercial sales, he wanted to be a chronicler of our time A modern day Stendahl or Balzac That will never be within him Cuts a sad figure these days.
