Day 6: A book that makes you sad

The Spy Who Came in From The Cold by John le Carré

Is sad the wrong word to use in order to describe how I feel about The Spy Who Came in From The Cold? Should incredible rage and disappointment in the whole of humankind, with a side of pity and despair be more accurate? Probably. This is such a depressing novel, and no matter how well written it is, how engaging the story is, it still has one of the most depressing endings I have ever read. That includes Atonement! Now no-one should be put off this book because of that – I genuinely enjoyed it and am glad I read it as TSWCIFTC is a clever book that I think should be read by anyone with the smallest interest in espionage (whether it is accurate or not takes a back seat to essentially a debate on ethics, as fun as that sounds). However, be warned: upon turning the last page you may lose all hope in humanity.
