Format: Audio CD
I'm about 2/3 through listening to this wonderful reading of the novel. The reader has a wonderful British voice so perfect for LeCarre and the interior thoughts of Ned. Even better, when he quotes Smiley, he almost exactly reproduces the voice of the elderly Alec Guinness (who played Smiley in the BBC TV versions of the Karla trilogy).
