Some explanation and exposition. I had to re-listen to sections based on british slang or british intelligency agency jargon. I've listened to hundreds of thrillers, some very complex and politcal but this one was a tough listen. I gave up about 5 hrs into the book. I saw the movie hoping that some of the vague aspects would be clarified but the movie wasn't that easy to follow either. I think you either get this kind of Le Carre novel or you don't. If you're looking for an easy intriguing listen, this is NOT it.
Was going to be 50 Shades of Gray but due to reviews blasting the narration will probably go with lighter fare- maybe "Guts"
Less british spy jargon or at least a little explanation here and there on some of the story's characters, "circus" terminology, etc.
Disappointed. I knew there was a cool story there but just too much effort to figure out what was going on chapter to chapter based on the narration/heavy brit accent.
