Who am I?
Why did John love this book?
I loved this book for its engaging story. Spies, particularly the real ones, intrigue me.
Macintyre shapes the story of Kim Philby as a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. His style flows like a river in summertime, a trip through history with a human touch and a fascination for the people of the Cold War.
The book was made into a six-part TV series featuring Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce. I watched it, and then I read the book. I couldn’t get enough of MI6, the CIA, and the KGB who play games of the worst kind, through lies.
