    (385)

    The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla - his Moscow Centre nemesis - and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

    carl801 says: "Le Carre remains the gold standard"
    "Nicely done."

    Story
    If you could sum up Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy in three words, what would they be?

    Extremely well constructed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The subtle intrigue. Nothing was over the top. It seemed that the author matched his method of story telling to the lives of the characters he described. Quiet, deliberate and with a great many of the details of the story implied but never written.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Jayston – was your favorite?

    George Smiley of course, but he did a brilliant job with all of them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I wouldn't say extreme but it definitely made me look forward to the next opportunity to listen to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The strength of Mr. Jayston's abilities will have me looking for other author's books that feature him as their narrator.
