Finished "The Night Manager."

Le Carre is an interesting contrast to Ludlum (obviously a far superior writer). In a Ludlum book, the good guy is really good, and the bad guy is really bad. It's a fast read, and you forget about it an hour after you finish the book.

In "The Night Manager," I rather liked the bad guy (an arms dealer).

And the people the good guy is working for aren't really very good (no better than the bad guy, at least).
