Yes. The story had a good flow. I couldn't stop listening to the book. The intensity and exceitment kept building until the end.
When I first heard mention of this book, a British spy novel, my mind instantly conjured images of James Bond. I went into the book expecting a daring and suave hero. This expectation lead me to a bit of disappointment when I first met Smiley. But, as the book moved forward, I found myself becoming very fond of Smiley. A very clever hero in his own right. A hero that is not really a hero at all and is just as fallible as any of us. A very human character that has triumphed and failed, loved and lost, right and wrong. A character that can be related to by the reader.
I enjoyed the narrators smooth delivery. He was very enjoyable to listen to. I was often immersed in the story as if I was watching a movie completely unaware of the narrators voice. He didn't overdo any of the characters voices, but sometimes this lead to confusion as to who was speaking in parts of the book containing rapid dialog from multiple characters.
This was a great introduction to the series. The author has a knack for getting you to feel what the character is feeling with out a cumbersome amount of text. I enjoyed it until the very end.
