I've been meaning to read this series for over a year now (and by the time this review gets posted, that was probably another year ago). It tells stories about MI-6 the British version (sort of) of the CIA, and various characters within the service, their missions and personal lives/problems. Yeah, sounds good, and lots of people love it, but I'm not one of them. If it is put down in front of me, I'll read it, but I just don't care very much about the stories, especially considering how real life spy drama is so much more, well, dramatic (if at a much slower pace). It's not over the top, which is good, unlike 24 or MI-5, shows I've reviewed here, but there isn't enough to grip me.
