The Expats: A Novel | Chris Pavone

Pickpick

This was a twisty story that I really enjoyed. I listened on #audiobook, so maybe that‘s why some of the movement back and forth in time was confusing for a while. I‘m not sure. I think I‘ve pretty much got it straight now, and I enjoyed it!

I generally enjoy Le Carre‘s work, but this book never really grabbed me.

I keep trying... I even keep trying with novels by Le Carre ... but spy novels might not be for me. You‘d think they would be an easy transition from mystery & thriller. But they‘re just not. And I‘m always left thinking, “All that? For nothing?” pretty much after each one, no matter how well it was written 🤷🏻‍♀️

Caroline2 I know what you mean, I can‘t get into spy novels either! 🤷‍♀️ 1w

This wasn't one of my favorite 007 stories, but I do love James Bond, so it was still a pick. #ReadingThroughTheYears192021 #1955

Cathythoughts @cinfhen I‘ve never read any either ... but James Bond is such a memorable character from all the movies 3w

Cathythoughts @batsy thanks! 🤣🤸‍♀️ 2w
CarolynM Fab cover! If you're going to read one I wouldn't recommend starting with this one. Casino Royale or From Russia With Love would make better starting points. 2w

I was so torn on this one! It starts out strong, but jumps around quite a bit and I found it difficult to follow at times...I don‘t like when books change to the past or present with each chapter and it takes you a while to figure out which story line it was...overall it kept me engaged and I would like to read the next in the series, but I still have so many questions because the ending was quick and incomplete... ⭐️⭐️1/2

JacqMac @Buechersuechtling It‘s Remembrance Day in Canada. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, we remember those who were lost in war and all the people who fought and sacrificed for our freedom. This poem is always read at the ceremonies of remembrance. 4w

#NamasteNovember #WinterTheme For some reason ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold‘ has become our Christmas Eve film (for at least the last five years): I first read the book when I was having a break in Berlin (I like to theme my holiday reading), it was snowy and freezing.

Eggs Great choice 1mo

Silva never disappoints.In this the 5th in the series, there are twists and turns a plenty.We also learn more about Gabriel‘s personal life.His books are more than thrillers ,they make you think about art , history, and the complexity of international relations.
