By comparison, the spooks in LeCarre's novels really spend t One of the more interesting aspects of Ian Fleming's James Bond series is the fact that, although Bond is ostensibly a spy, he really doesn't do very much spying: he doesn't invisibly infiltrate enemy lines, doesn't uncover valuable hidden information.

By comparison, the spooks in LeCarre's novels really spend their time spying: an activity which is, according to LeCarre, bureaucratic, tedious, dangerous, unrewarding, and lonely.

In other words, in LeCarre's novels, being a spy is much like being a police officer minus any of the redeeming aspects.

Given this job description, one of the most interesting questions about a spy is: why on earth do they do it? For LeCarre's characters, becoming a spy is less an act of heroism than one of self-abnegation, penance, or revenge, and the best of his novels focus on the forces that drive individuals to such acts.

The Night Manager is one of LeCarre's best novels, a thriller that is more interested in the unstable psyche and self-compromises of its protagonist than the plot events that are taking place around him.

Of course, those events are fairly interesting in their own right, a complex tapestry of government corruption, international arms dealing, and interpersonal intrigue which suggest that in the wake of the Cold War, and in a post-national era, the lines between business and government, politics and crime, are so subtle that they no longer actually have meaning.

A smart, neatly written spy tale by a masterful nihilist at the top of his game. View all 3 comments.

Jonathan Pine is ready to stand up and be counted in the fight against this ultimate heart of darkness. His mission takes him from the cliffs of west Cornwall, via northern Quebec and the Caribbean, to the jungles of post-Noriega Panama.

His quarry is the worst man in the world. His actions draw him into the world of Richard Roper, a businessman and arms dealer. Even though this was written in and this BBC rendition encompasses the Egyptian spring more than a decade later, all I can say is I loved episode one.

Six months earlier, Burr continues her recruitment of Pine, sending him to Devon to build his cover story. Meanwhile, Burr and Steadman seize on an opportunity to recruit a new asset.

Meanwhile, Burr has concerns for the safety of her source when she suspects key information has been leaked to the River House.

In London, Burr and Steadman face mounting opposition from Whitehall. Pine risks it all to put his plan in motion.

A discredited Burr makes one last stand. View all 38 comments. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious.

It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small "inside" group knows what it is "Every man has his personal devil waiting for him somewhere.

I loved it. It wasn't perfect, but it was a nice exploration of the guns for drug trade that went on and hell, probably still goes on with tacit approval of arms producing nations see UK, US, etc.

The adaption moves the time frame up lucky for the adaption, arms dealing and government complicity in this ugly economy is almost timeless to the period right around the Arab Spring.

With that out of the way, I have to say, I struggled mightily with this book. The plot--man infiltrates criminal organization to seek revenge on the man who heads said organization—should have made for a compelling novel, but it just In my opinion, of course.

Overall it was plodding and slow, and could never really hold my attention for very long. I could easily put Disclaimer: I only read this book because they're making a TV version, and Tom Hiddleston is going to play the protagonist.

I could easily put it down for days, ok, months at a time. The bureaucratic side of things was too confusing; there were far too many government figures—all of whom had little character development—to keep straight.

Burr being the exception. It took way entirely too long to get Pine infiltrated into Roper's organization.

I get that they needed to set up an intricate criminal background for him, but it took too much time. I'd have rather seen him get into Roper's organization much earlier.

I think it was over a third of the way in before he finally got in with him. I also felt too much of the novel was focused on Pine's manpain in regards to women.

He wanted revenge on Roper for Sophie's murder, and that's why agreed to infiltrate his organization.

I get that. Had more time been spent with her and Pine in the earlier parts of the book maybe by cutting out some of the 'criminal background setup' I mentioned earlier , then perhaps.

Therefore, I felt the revenge motive to be a bit And then there's Jed. Jed is Roper's mistress.

And, of course, Pine is going to fall for her. And for me, there were far too many passages of Pine's internal thoughts about Jed, his feelings for her, hating himself for having feelings for her, because he's not even sure he likes her most of the time.

Needless to say feelings the two had for each other never rang true to me. All of the characters, Pine and Roper included, needed more fleshing out.

I couldn't connect to any of them, really. I don't know. This book just didn't work for me.

That being said, I didn't loathe the book, and there were some enjoyable parts. With some retooling and a lot of the fat trimmed, I can see where this could be adapted successfully for the small screen.

Can't wait to see how it all plays out there. View all 18 comments. Feb 23, Paul E. Now, this may just be a novelist trying to be nice about the folks who just paid him a lot of money to film his book but, in the case that it is true, I think I agree with him.

A conversation with a guest late one night opens his eyes to the dark underworld of the arms trade; this guest Sophie asks him to pass some documents to the Egyptian authorities, which he does, but he sends a copy onto a friend in MI6 too, even though she warned him that Roper has contact with the British security services.

A short while later she is found murdered, and it dawns on Pine that he may be responsible for her death. Six mo Jonathan Pine is the Night manager at a luxury hotel in Cairo.

Six months later, Pine is now in Switzerland at a new hotel where is slightly surprised to see Roper and his cohorts appear as guests.

A little while later he is approached by a man called Burr, who is ex MI6. He has set up a small unit to work against the arms dealers and he wants Pine to help with the sting against Roper.

It has to be done outside as Roper has too much influence inside MI6. Pine agrees to go undercover, and starts the process developing new names and details for his story, before heading to the Bahamas.

The team orchestrate a fake kidnapping of Ropers son, which Pine plays a key part in the rescue of him, and he gains Ropers confidence and is inducted into his team.

Unbeknown to him, there is another spy in the Roper camp, but he is working for the Americans. This guy starts to imply that the current right hand man, Major Corkoran, is not reliable, hoping that Roper will trust more in Pine.

The traps are set, but does Roper have enough influence to escape from this one? This is a dark and complicated story, which he has used to shine a light on the shady and dubious world of arms trading.

It demonstrates just how much the industry is intertwined with national governments and the security services. The plot is really good too, there are all sorts of deception and betrayals going on, and he has dipped into his knowledge of tradecraft to show how someone can develop a cover.

Great stuff. View all 4 comments. The Night Manager is about courage, redemption and love of country. To run away from his demon and fail marriage Jonathan Pine became a night manager at the Hotel Meister Palace in Zurich.

John le Carre know how to engage his readers in his plots. I like John le Carre portrayal of his characters and the way they entwine with each other.

John le Carre does a great job in describing the setting of The Night Manager for his readers. Also, The Night Manager highlights the problems of keeping problems to yourself.

I recommend this book I understood that the movie version was set some years ago--Sidney Pollack to direct and Robert Towne to do the script--then it fell through for those unspecified "creative differences.

Then I heard Le Carre speak and someone asked him about the movie project. He said he was barred from discussing it because of his co I have read [Book:The Night Manager] several times and I can't help seeing Kevin Spacey in the role even though he's not a Brit.

He said he was barred from discussing it because of his contract with the studio but did admit that the project ended badly. I do hope it gets resurrected.

I believe this is Le Carre's best book since the George Smiley trilogy. I don't much care for the descriptions of torture. Including that kind of material always seems to me as though the author were taking the advice of an agent who wants a big movie sale.

The book would be just as powerful without it. Or is brutality just an expected element of the modern spy thriller?

The popularity of Bourne would make you think so, but Le Carre's work rises to the level of the best literary fiction, whereas I don't think Ludlum's does.

I will admit, however, that the torture is organic to the plot. As any fan of Le Carre's might suspect, it's all about taking the consequences for your own betrayals.

The punishment did fit the crime, however unintended or in the line of duty. The old triangle trade was slaves for molasses for rum.

The subject of this book is arms for cocaine for laundered money. You can learn a lot about the complexities of international economics in the gray market, and you'll wonder what your friendly local banker is really doing with your hard-earned deposits.

Also that boat. Dickie Roper's yacht rivals Larry Ellison's. Big enough to land a helicopter on it. Makes delicious fantasy. I suspect that there was someone dear in Le Carre's life named Jemima because the name figures prominently both here and in The Perfect Spy.

View all 19 comments. I liked the pacing of this novel. It was classic Le Carre. I did have one issue with it though, some of the action scenes seemed a bit muddled.

So I had to re-read them to find out how the characters got from point A to point B. There was some connecting of the dots involved.

For this book had a unique story structure. If it has not or did not win a Pulitzer, Le Carre was robbed. Jonathan Pine, our protagonist, has not gone out for guts and glory; his military career was a deep and profound function of the almost criminal loss of his parents at young, tender ages.

He knew little of his father except that he had an illustrious military career and that that career was the cause of his death. His mother dies soon after of an illness.

Before he successfully reaches and negotiates adolescence, he is profoundly and completely alone. Military schools and military service parent him, orient him, yet do not require of him a lifetime commitment.

When we meet him, he is pleasantly serving as the night manager at a wealthy and quite exclusive hotel in Europe.

He is not happy, he is not unhappy, he is not even waiting. He has loved one woman and lost her tragically, and he wants to avenge her, yet has had no opportunity to do so.

He does not go in pursuit of one, such opportunity presents itself, and when it does, he lunges for it. The murder of a young boy in a small coastal town brings a media frenzy, which threatens to tear the community apart.

A police investigation, the saga of a grieving family, and a Seattle mayoral campaign all interlock after the body of year-old Rosie Larsen is found in the trunk of a submerged car.

Ten strangers are invited to an island by a mysterious host, and start to get killed one by one. Could one of them be the killer?

A disgraced lawyer, now an ambulance chaser, gets a case that could bring him redemption or at least revenge on the firm which expelled him.

An up-and-coming CIA analyst, Jack Ryan, is thrust into a dangerous field assignment as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit.

Adventurer James Keziah Delaney returns to London during the War of to rebuild his late father's shipping empire.

However, both the government and his biggest competitor want his inheritance at any cost - even murder.

He gets involved with a local woman who is the girlfriend of a local gangster. Through her relationship with the gangster she has acquired information linking illegal international arms sales with Richard Roper Hugh Laurie , an English billionaire.

She is soon found dead, murdered due to her having this information. Fearing for his own life, Pine flees, ending up working at a remote hotel in Switzerland.

Four years pass, and then Roper visits the Swiss hotel. This rekindles Pines thirst for revenge, and he is enlisted by British Intelligence to spy on Roper.

What follows is a very dangerous game of intrigue and deception. Written by grantss. Very flash and dazzle television highlighted by attractive cast, exotic locations, and cloak and dagger plot.

So you're ex British military, disillusioned from your war experience, and currently a night manager at a four star Cairo hotel. When you got the skills, are ridiculously hansom, I suppose life moves pretty fast!

The Night Manager gets off to a great start, setting up a nice six part series of some serious undercover action.

And I'm not just talking about the quickies with equally beautiful women. If this all sounds too awesome to pass up - quit reading here, and fire this series up!

It is unlikely you will be disappointed. However, if you want to know my negative marks, proceed. The disappointment comes in the last third, where an increasingly unlikely set of choices, circumstances, and results unfold to wrap up the story - just not in most savory of ways to the experienced mediaphile.

If one reads or researches enough actual historical espionage - spies are one cold group of mo-fo's who will use any variety of tactics to achieve their ends.

This includes lies, betrayal, seduction and true moral ambiguity. Unfortunately, The Night Manager simply doesn't turn the dark corner to deliver the logical payoff.

The writers choose to keep the protagonist likable and a man of honor - which sounds good in theory, but the choices rely on a lot of luck and suspension of disbelief to rationalize the outcome.

This may sound harsh - but I'm hoping anyone who reads this watches this series or already has , to understand my viewpoint.

It's really good, recommended - but falls far short of a classic, 7 out of Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.

He does not go in pursuit of one, such opportunity presents itself, and when it does, he lunges for it. He has hated the man, a notorious and disgustingly wealthy criminal at the highest level, since the brutal beating death of this woman he loved.

She haunts him, lives deeply inside his soul, spirit, and consciousness, and when service as an agent is required for the chance to send the devil on earth responsible for her death to prison, Jonathan Pine surprises even the espiocrats who hire and train him.

Not even they are prepared for his quiet, solitary, deathly, committed service. What I love most about this character is that he is not loud, boastful, an extrovert.

He knows best how to remain by himself. He socializes, but never with intent; he takes nothing from his friends, nor does he give; he doesn't pry, yet if someone needed something important, he would find a way to satisfy their obvious necessity.

He goes out in pursuit of nothing, yet when opportunity walks up to him, he greets it heartily and with the ready potential for murder within the most supple palms of his hands.

He does not speak loudly, nor is he happy when love insists on the heart's allegiance; he is furious with himself when a woman captures his attention, and within his own mind, curses both she and himself repeatedly when his body and mind react to her beauty.

Both Burr and all those committed to a lifetime of service within the intelligence community are dumbfounded by all they discover that Pine is capable of achieving.

They think they train him, yet are surprised by what he achieves once they set him loose in the field. He is simply the best they have ever seen, and they cannot believe how forcefully and competently he rises to each and every occasion.

And he does so without fanfare, bravado, just a quiet intensity and focus that astounds them all. The difficulty of the vocabulary and its unapologetic Britishness I found imminently and profoundly refreshing; it was as though I had come home to the books I used to read as a teenager and young adult: challenging, masterful literature written at the highest level.

Le Carre puts me in the mind of, say, Baldwin, in terms of the complexity and sophistication of his prose art. I could quite easily teach an entire seminar on this one novel alone.

It was old home week; it was a return to literature of the highest caliber; it was discovering Sherlock Holmes all over again at It was worth every second of every minute that I suffered and watched and waited with Jonathan Pine.

Dec 15, Eva S. I gave this book 3 stars because I felt it was lacking in certain areas. I will admit that, as far as plot goes, it is a very well-thought-out book and that the author knows how to set the mood, despite his elaborate writing style.

However, I cannot get on board with paper cut-out female characters and two-dimensional secondary characters that exist just for 3 out of 5 stars Since, I finaly got the chance to write this almost a month after finishing the book , I'll keep it as short as possible.

However, I cannot get on board with paper cut-out female characters and two-dimensional secondary characters that exist just for the sake of existing.

The use of certain stereotypes, that in my opinion came to define one character in particular, bothered me, in the sense that they weren't addressed in the entirety of the book.

If you are intimidated by the length of the book, allow me to reccommend the series it was made into by the BBC, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Happy reading! This isn't so short after all Oh, well! I consider myself a John le Carre aficionado, and this is, hands down, my favorite thus far.

We anticipate that his espionage and political threads are strong and tightly drawn. However, what is the true joy of this novel is the emotional depth of le Carre's hero, Jonathan.

Driven by retribution and revenge, we get a man as opposed to an automaton with heart and soul as well as the obligatory skills of a spy.

I can't get you out of my head. I don't mean I'm in love with you. I sleep with you, I wake up with you, I can't clean my teeth without cleaning yours as well and most of the time I'm quarreling with you.

There's no logic to it, there's no pleasure to it. I haven't heard you express a single thought worth a damn, and most of what you say is affected bilge.

Yet every time I think of something funny, I need you to laugh at it, and when I'm low it's you I need to cheer me up. I don't know who you are, if you're anyone at all.

Or whether you're here for the beer or because you're wildly in love with Roper. And I'm sure you don't know either.

I think you're a total mess. Not at all. It makes me indignant, it makes me a fool it makes me want to wring your neck. But that's just part of the package.

And if you don't get it, then seriously, you just don't get le Carre. The recent BBC version is fairly faithful to the first part of the book, though it misses out a whole episode in Quebec where Pine is creating a backstory for himself.

The book also pads out the relationship between Pine and Jed English here and allows us into his thoughts making him far less opaque than Tom Hiddleston's character.

It perhaps doesn't have the emotional intensity of the Karla trilogy or books like the superlative The Constant Gardener but it is an engrossing tale that transfers beautifully to the present day.

View 1 comment. Jonathan Pine is the night manager of an Egyptian hotel when he is indirectly responsible for the death of a customer who trusted him with information about her husband who is involved in international weapon deals.

When he finds himself in an old family hotel in Switzerland he finds himself in the company of an international arms dealer who is responsible for his customers death in Egypt and he wants to take this character out of circulation and once again approaches the British secret service.

And so starts a sequence that will deliver him into the path of this Richard Onslow Roper and gives him a credible history to find a place among his entourage and to destroy the man and his business from the inside.

The story is also about the power and influence within the walls of Whitehall and the price might be head of Jonathan Pine.

This is actually quite a decent thriller even if the ending is somewhat baffling and feels a bit surreal and unreal.

The story is disturbing in the sense that powerplay is not done for the good of the nation but the good of the various business people.

The Ropers of this world always gets coveted and protected by the man in power who should protect the world.

Selling weapons even to areas of conflict does not interest them as long as he sells British. We see the white knight versus the world of money and power.

Anybody would guess the result. Well worth your while, I guess I will have to watch the tv show now. This took me a while to get into.

Let's hope the TV series keeps me awake longer than the book did! The first 50 pages of this novel are some of the best material I've ever read.

The result is absolutely stunning. When Pine first gets in contact with his handler Leonard Burr, The Night Manager goes into full spy novel and become labyrinthic and some The first 50 pages of this novel are some of the best material I've ever read.

When Pine first gets in contact with his handler Leonard Burr, The Night Manager goes into full spy novel and become labyrinthic and somewhat predictable.

At least, much more than its wonderfully disorienting start. There's a LOT of character, lots of stereotypical bureaucrats jockeying for power.

My expectations swell out of proportions, but I was expecting more given how the novel started.
