Has anyone read The Company: A Novel of the CIA by Robert Littell? Is it worth the nearly 900 pages? How does it compare to other Littell books? Or other spy genre standouts?

I'm not much of a CIA fiction fan, but this one seems to be a touchstone in the genre, like Norman Mailer's Harlot's Ghost, which I'm also curious about.

The Robert Littell titles I'd really like to read are The Once and Future Spy and Legends, but I guess I'll be "good" and read my copy of The Debriefing first, at least so I can decide if I like his narrative voice...

Any thoughts on whether Chuck Barris' claims to have been an employee of the Company in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind: An Unauthorized Autobiography were true or not?

Hi all! I see it's been a while since this thread was active, but I recently picked up The Sisters by Littell and I'm enjoying it very much, so I thought I'd add a comment here. I don't read a lot of espionage fiction--maybe one or two such novels a year--so I hadn't even heard of Littell. Just pulled the book off the shelf at a nearby thrift store. The story and the characters are well constructed.
