Writing this somewhat (several months) after reading it. But it was excellent Le Carré. Really good to see how he branched out after the fall of the Soviet Union. Also nice continuation of themes and characters from The Secret Pilgrim. Somewhat reminiscent of The Little Drummer Girl. A touch more Bond-ish than normal, with all the sneaking around. Lots of the Le Carré human fallibility on display. ( )

I really wanted to read The Night Manager by John le Carré because of the miniseries. I'm that weirdo who likes to read the book first. Why not? I found it cheap on Book Outlet and I love a good spy thriller. Or maybe I don't?

This book kind of put me off spy thrillers. It was long, slow and boring. I love a good spy thriller that keeps you engaged and isn't written to the point of boredom. There was so much explanation, so much random dialogue and content it just was dull. I couldn't get into it. I kept sloshing through it hoping that it might pick up... and it didn't really until the last quarter of the book. I was bored silly! It's a real shame too because everyone I know loves John! They all talk so highly of his books (including this one). It's just not my type of book, which is totally okay.

I think this will be a great miniseries, but the book just didn't translate for me.

One out of five stars. ( )

Just to be upfront about it, I did not finish this book. This review is based on the first chapter.

I saw the Amazon series, and was intrigued.

I found the book to be sexist. Specifically, the main character -- who I would imagine is meant to be the sympathetic hero -- had sexist thoughts in an inner monologue. As a result, I had a difficult time engaging when I found the hero not redeeming in this way. Life is too short for such books, full of too many thrillers that don't have such issues, so I set it aside permanently. ( )

Al comienzo, Jonathan Pine es simplemente el director nocturno de un lujoso hotel. Pero, cuando un intento de pasar información acerca de un hombre de negocios internacionales con tratos sospechosos alojado e n el establecimiento se vuelve en su contra de una manera terrible y empiezan a morir personas cercanas a Pine, él se compromete a luchar contra unas fuerzas tan poderosas que no podría ni imaginar.

Is "The Night Manager" up to the best of John le Carré? The equivocal answer has to be: yes, but only where it concerns the worlds of Roper and the London and Washington agencies. Their activities are handled with total assurance and an evident and infectious enjoyment. Elsewhere, however, Mr. le Carré sometimes surrenders to the inescapably sensational nature of the espionage thriller, and also to a romanticism about women that leads to the creation of a pipe-dream fantasy rather than a character in Jed, Roper's mistress.
adicionada por Widsith | editarNY Times, Julian Symonds (Jul 20, 1993)
 
In his superb new novel […] he works familiar territory with the mastery of a brilliant conductor returning to a favorite symphony. […] Through every page, the almost-numb heart and mind of Le Carre's still- honorable protagonist give this novel a heartbreaking gravity.
adicionada por Widsith | editarEntertainment Weekly, Mark Harris (Jul 9, 1993)
 
The Night Manager also obeys solid and readable conventions. […] But in seeking to move with the times, Le Carre has produced an adventure of the most old-fashioned and predictable sort. […] Hovering over this extravagant saga is a moralising, allegorical tendency that continues to drain the energy out of Le Carre's natural storytelling gift.

On a snow-swept January evening of 1991, Jonathan Pine, the English night manager of the Hotel Meister Palace in Zurich, forsook his office behind the reception desk and, in the grip of feelings he had not known before, took up his position in the lobby as a prelude to extending his hotel's welcome to a distinguished late arrival.
