JOHN LE CARRÉ was born in 1931.

JOHN LE CARRÉ was born in 1931. He was educated at the Universities of Bern and Oxford, taught at Eton College, and served as Second Secretary at the British Embassy in Bonn and British Consul in Hamburg during the Cold War. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a wide reputation, which was consolidated by his trilogy Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Honourable Schoolboy; and Smiley’s People. His recent work includes The Tailor of Panama, The Constant Gardener, and The Mission Song. Published by the Penguin Group.

The Night Manager is an espionage novel by John le Carré, published in 1993. It is his first post-Cold War novel, detailing an undercover operation to bring down a major international arms dealer. Jonathan Pine, a former British soldier, is the night manager. We first meet him in that capacity at the Hotel Meister Palace in Zurich. He is on duty when the "worst man in the world", Richard Onslow Roper, arrives with his entourage on a cold, blizzardy night.

The Night Manager book. I was surprised because the two books of John le Carré that I've read earlier were perfect for me. What I love about his writing is how realistic it feels. No flashy spy gadgets or extreme gun plays.

When his third book, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, became a worldwide bestseller in 1964, Le Carre left the foreign service to write full time. The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, which was also adapted to film, featured spymaster George Smiley, who was introduced in Le Carre's first book, Call for the Dead (published in the . as The Deadly Affair) and also appears in A Murder of Quality; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Honorable Schoolboy; and Smiley's People.

Instead le Carré’s novels recreate again and again small, self-contained and self-important communities, awash with . Self-mocking grandiosity, Latin tags and scraps of Victorian poetry – the book and its characters are saturated in it.

Instead le Carré’s novels recreate again and again small, self-contained and self-important communities, awash with dashing characters who all bathe in each other’s admiration and play out their romantic and improbable plots in isolation from the rest of the world. Public school mindset.

бесплатно, без регистрации и без смс. In The Night Manager, John le Carr 's first post-Cold War novel, an ex-soldier helps British Intelligence penetrate the secret world of ruthless arms dealers. Le Carr is the equal of any novelist now writing in English' Guardian'A marvellously observed relentless tale' Observer At the start of it all, Jonathan Pine is merely the night manager at a luxury hotel. But when a single attempt to pass on information to the British authorities - about an international businessman at the hotel with suspicious dealings - backfires terribly,.

In the shadowy recesses of Whitehall and Washington an unholy alliance operates between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. 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.
  • I have read reviews of Le Carre's post cold war novels that treat them as of a lower quality than his classics. I must disagree with that view. Le Carre's more recent works evoke the murky alliances of modern powers, whether state or private, with a deft touch. His tales paint compelling, relatable victims, villains, and heroes, navigating today's brutal world of big money, omnipresent surveillance, and bought and sold governments. The NIght Manager works both on the personal level as a story of fully drawn people struggling in difficult circumstances and in terms of the big picture where compromised institutions perpetuate their existence by supporting the very evils they were established to combat. An eloquent examination of our times.

  • I enjoyed The Night Manager, but I will say I enjoyed it AFTER I watched the Amazon Prime series by the same name. I was so captivated by both the superb acting and the story, that I then bought and read the book. It was very helpful that I could rely on the film to have sorted out the characters, as there are so many. There are the Brits, the Americans, the foreigners, etc. I do not think I would have been able to keep all the characters straight had I not seen the film. Having said that, it was enjoyable to read the book and see how it differed from the screen version. In general, John Le Carre is a skilled novelist and one can bank on most of his books as a good read.

  • Pine and Roper, protagonist and antagonist respectively, are well drawn, but there are just too many minor characters in the book, most of whom we know primarily by name. Thus, the book is a bit of a slog, requiring constant looking back to recall who is who. It also suffers from several long scenes made up entirely of dialogue. On the one hand, it's a well-plotted espionage thriller; on the other, it dissolves into confusion as one tries to disentangle internecine struggles among British agencies and similar ones amongst the "Cousins." The author sometimes displays a willful opacity that seems a little contemptuous of even his most seasoned readers. I have heard that the AMC mini-series is a model of clarity.

  • Although I'd seen the TV series I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Set earlier than the TV Series it contained more back story and different locations The characters were more complex. Despite knowing the type of ending I still found the tension building and had to put it down several times because my heart was pounding. So well written. What a master yarn-spinner this man is.

  • The Night Manager describes the murky trade in deadly arms, and the equally murky corridors of government agencies that aid and abet it if this so happens to advance The National Interest. The novel is populated by colourful characters, and has a pace that will leave the reader at times breathless, and at other times admiring the effortless prose and delightful turns of phrase so typical of Le Carre.
    Although Smiley catapulted him the fame, and I still re-read them regularly, it’s the non-dagger novels like The Honourable Schoolboy and The Night Manager where his writing is so rich, so full of flawed but loveable human characters, and the plots and sub-plots and viewpoints duck and weave and bob like corks in a torrent creek. Above all, Le Carre remains hugely entertaining.

  • The two drawbacks I had with this novel is that it is too British [slang, local jargon, insider references] and the ending. I did see the mini-series on TV and liked it enough to read the book which is usually better than the video. After building characters, plot and tension for several hundred pages, it was like "let's wrap this up and get on with something else". I felt there were too many loose ends and an unacceptable leap to finish the narrative. This leap was more than my imagination could logically accept. Still, it was a good read and except for my confusion with the end, I enjoyed the book.

  • John le Carre at his best: nail-biting suspense against a backdrop of an inept and corrupt MI6. Which just serves to make the good guys really good, and the bad guys really bad. The "worst man in the world" is the man who can sell high-tech illegal arms and ordinance to governments and terror groups who should never get their hands on such weapons. Le Carre gives us the ultimate British patriot in Jonathan Pine, a devotee of T.S. Lawrence, whose desire to bring down illegal arms salesman Dickie Roper amounts to his own personal jihad. But pay attention to the goings-on at MI6. That's where even more retribution and blood-letting will take place.
    Note: this 1993 book has a different ending than the recent TV movie, but is otherwise the same thriller.

  • Before reading Mr. Le Carre's latest book I would have been hard-pressed to think he would top what I always thought of as his best, namely, Tinker, Tailer, Soldier, Spy. And while The Night Manager is crafted very differently from the now-aged masterpiece, it evokes perhaps an even greater suspense, but this time with the fear generated not by a hard, Russian or East German adversary, but by the evil lurking within the offices of the British and American secret services themselves. The so-called "bad guy" arms purveyors seem almost tame by comparison with the corrupted secret service types whose machinations thwart Le Carre's protagonist and his handlers. Le Carre's depiction of the English old-boy network is simply superlative, and the result is a true masterpiece of modern-day espionage mired in pernicious bureaucracy and worse.
