I loved the reader's voice and cadence. It fit the deliberate writing style. The story had a couple of great moments and is more sophisticated than your average spy tale. I confess that I more enjoy the action in a cookie cutter thriller even when I see through it. I enjoyed seeing the character at early, middle and later middle life. I enjoyed his thoughts and their realism. But I prefer more action and obvious drama, because I read spy novels less to appreciate the art, and more to briefly step into another world. The book did illuminate some things of beauty about life, but also darkness that we already see all too clearly and can't help but think about. I know many people enjoy reading about life's agonies, and feel that a story without them is unrealistic and then lacks value. I'm the opposite. I think tales and stories must be about extraordinary topics to justify their telling. So I'm always willing to cut an author some slack if their plots are a bit too convenient. That's just not what this author is about.
