But THE IPCRESS FILE, Deighton's debut, was not as well-written. 21. Can't read it without thinking of Michael Caine in the film adaptation, which is not a bad thing at all. Recently got into spy novels...didn't enjoy Deighton.

I enjoyed this book, for the most part.

Perhaps that's why I could not really follow the plot.

I did like that the narrator was unnamed and I thoroughly enjoyed his sense of black humor, and deadpan dialogue. | Contact this seller I'll probably pass on other Deighton novels in the future.
