Tremor of Intent: An Eschatological Spy Novel (1966), by Anthony Burgess, is an English espionage novel. Burgess conceived it as a reaction both to the heavy-handed and humourless spy fiction of John le Carré, and to Ian Fleming's James Bond, a character Burgess thought an imperialist relic. The subtitle "An Eschatological Spy Novel" refers to Burgess's idea of the Cold War as a hostile symbiosis, an "ultimate conflict" for which Good and Evil are inadequate terms. Let us get certain things straight about Roper. Approach Number One will never work. I don't think for one moment that Roper can be persuaded to go back to anything

An eschatological spy novel. First published in 1966. But between the day and night. I don't think for one moment that Roper can be persuaded to go back to anything. He has this scientist's thoroughness about disposing of the past. He never rummaged among old discarded answers. It's not up to me, of course, to say what a load of bloody nonsense that is.

Tremor of Intent' is really a very minor effort by Anthony Burgess, an author who has otherwise fully earned his stellar reputation. It is a spy story that mostly takes place on a cruise ship in the Adriatic during the 1960s. The plot? Not very important, plausible or even fully understandable. The book is full of clever dialog and memorable characters

I think,' said Alan weightily, offering a Black Russian to Hillier, 'we ought to stick together, the three of u. Un-wontedly, Hillier accepted the cigarette and a light from the flaming Cygnus. We can have dinner in one of those special little dining-rooms. I'll go and arrange that

I think,' said Alan weightily, offering a Black Russian to Hillier, 'we ought to stick together, the three of u. I'll go and arrange that. Won't it look too much like a conspiracy?' asked Hillier, amused but touched. So it will be. A conspiracy against her.

Was it the rare book called Pokam, whose title Hillier had always remembered for its facetious English connotation? What now began was e, something he had forgotten existed. She gently inflamed him with the mayil or peacock embrace, moved on to the matakatham, the poththi, the putanai.

Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) was a novelist, poet, playwright, composer, linguist, translator and critic

Tremor of Intent is a rare combination of the deadly serious and the absurd, the lofty and the lusty. Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) was a novelist, poet, playwright, composer, linguist, translator and critic. He is best known for his novel A Clockwork Orange, but altogether he wrote thirty-three novels, twenty-five works of non-fiction, two volumes of autobiography, three symphonies, more than 150 other musical works, reams of journalism and much more. He was born in Manchester, England and grew up in Harpurhey and Moss Side, went to school in Rusholme, and studied at Manchester University.

Denis Hillier is an aging British agent based in Yugoslavia. His old school friend Roper has defected to the USSR to become one of the evil empire's great scientific minds. Hillier must bring Roper back to England or risk losing his fat retirement bonus. As thoughtful as it is funny, this morality tale of a Secret Service gone mad features sex, gluttony, violence, treacher ...more

'Tremor of Intent' is really a very minor effort by Anthony Burgess, an author who has otherwise fully earned his stellar reputation. It is a spy story that mostly takes place on a cruise ship in the Adriatic during the 1960s. The book seems mainly as vehicle for the author to show off his considerable wit and knowledge of languages. The plot? Not very important, plausible or even fully understandable. But no bother. The book is full of clever dialog and memorable characters.

Bottom line: a weak effort by Anthony Burgess would be considered a tremendous achievement by most anyone else. Yet, I think this book is best for Anthony Burgess fans only.

i hate giving huge descriptions about books and how the characters are and the problems of the book. to put it simply if you like anthony burgess and you like spy stories with a great ending then pick this book up. the history and development of the main characters was probably one of the most interesting aspects of the book. the two main characters are spies and one of them has left the side of "good" to be with the "bad". the one that remains on the good side is basically threatened by the "good" side in order to bring the other spy back. both characters go through some interesting development and get into some real trouble like a 250 lb child molester who doesnt just have his eyes on the children. the ending is definitely something unexpected but for those who read anthony burgess, they already know this. burgess has an incredible of keeping your interest the whole time. spies on adventures and their sexual prowess, as well as, their naievity and insanity that comes with job. overall an intersting read for any fan of burgess. you will definitely root for the good guys the whole way. anthony burgess hands down, was and continues to be one of the best writers in modern lit
