    1 thought on “The Sisters

    1. Attention du lourd du tr s lourd Du grand Littell Et encore je suis gentil je ne raconte pas l histoire sauf qu il s agit de celle d un agent dormant russe r veill pour accomplir une mission Mais Avec Littell c est videmment beaucoup plus compliqu que a en a l air.

    2. I really liked The Company very much and hoped this was equally engaging A good mystery and always strong on CIA KGB lore Did not become attached to any of the characters but still enjoyed.

    3. This gets four stars for spycraft, and two for political acumen Basically it explains Dallas, 1963 in terms of a convoluted spy turning I did enjoy the spycraft and clearly the author knows that trade, but the politics were clumsy at best How a sleeper could be directed to Dallas many years later on the basis of a prearranged plan that somehow can be changed at will, asks too much of the reader s imagination.

    4. Maybe 3.5 stars, maybe Spy vs spy Country vs country Sisters and cousins Me, the enemy is me Clever, but almost an overly forced clever Too many twos Don, maybe I was ruined because I read a different and better version of the same book written by Delillo Still, glad I read it still.

    5. This was a fine book for me, Littell confirms his ability to master the genre artfully, though The Sister looks a little artificial at a few levels the plot is very well constructed, actually even too much, almost too clever the two heroes the sisters a little over characterised to be real Anyway, we are talking details, this remains a very enjoyable and well written espionage thriller.

    6. Only Robert Littell and John Le Carre can pull me into a spy novel so deep, but for a change, The Sisters felt like a Coen brothers movie than a deep dive into the cold Cold War era.The plot moves at breakneck speed, but the characters and settings is decidedly Littell noir.As always, the Russsia centric discusssion on ideology vs idealism is first rate

    7. Strange book, all of the characters were sort of fascinatingly disturbing Enjoyable but it left me scratching my head wondering what the author was trying to say about people in the subtext below the spy story Definitely need to read another Littell to see what he s getting at

    8. The early 1960s The Cold War at its hottest Two CIA agents, who began with the OSS during World War II Soviet spies and sleepers Plots within plots within plots To say is to give it away Definitely a compelling read.

    9. Enjoyable, Cold War spy thriller Pretty much exactly what I was looking for Not as good as The Company, obviously, but I learned some new spy tricks

    10. This is a spy novel I am reading for my bookclub It just got interesting as the former KGB agent was smuggled out of USSR.will let you know.

    11. Very Good Russian sleeper is activated by CIA to commit perfect crime, as the story goes along one realizes its a famous one.
