I really like the follow up, I'd expected more of a basic takeover from the old regime, have new adventures, but was pleasantly surprised to see the full ramifications of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy carried out--the entire operation has, practically, to be rebuilt, and less trustworthy, less veteran members of the circus must be relied upon.

I think, however, le Carré started to get a bit long winded. Maybe most of the book contributed to the ended, but I couldn't help feeling that some concision would have helped push the reader into the story, and make them care more.
