No one sets scene or describes character or place more perfectly. He makes the mundane so real it is simply stupendous

Because you need to read this to make sense of the trilogy. It is excellent and you won't regret it

Full on mystery in the Smiley's People trilogy. Have just finished all three and couldn't put any of them down.

Fantastic, what a pity the BBC never made a series of it to complete this trilogy by John Le Carre

Just what I expected from this author, though it took a long time to get it in the kindle edition

Format: Audio CDVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
If, like me, you caught the odd episode of Le Carré's 'Karla' trilogy on the radio, but never managed to listen to whole series complete, these CD's are a blessing. These are dense and complex stories and they deserve to be listened to with the minimum of distractions and interruptions.
Le Carré's world of understatement, impenetrable hierarchies and subtle betrayal is quintessentially English, and listening to these in the comfort of your living room is a perfect way to get through the dark winter evenings.
The cast and production is superb. Each disc of the three disc set is broken into 16 tracks for easy navigation on your CD player (they do, of course, play continuously).

Not having read any of John Le Carré's books or watched any of the BBC TV adaptations, I came to this more or less without expectations. I'm pleased to say that this is an extremely good radio drama production, with a superb cast and a gripping story. Simon Russell Beale is every bit as good as you might expect in the role of Smiley, but special mention should go to Hugh Bonneville who gives a terrific performance as the titular Jerry Westerby. On the strength of this I shall certainly be listening to more of these.
