Description

Long-awaited reissue of the first part of the classic spy trilogy, Game, Set, and Match, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world. East is East and West is West - and they meet in Berlin.

He was the best source the Department ever had, but now he desperately wanted to come over the Wall. ‘Brahms Four' was certain a high-ranking mole was set to betray him. There was only one Englishman he trusted any more: someone from the old days.So they decided to put Bernard Samson back into the field after five sedentary years of flying a desk. The field is Berlin.

The game is as baffling, treacherous and lethal as ever.

©2014 HarperCollins Publishers Limited (P)2010 Len Deighton

Commentaires

"Deighton's best novel to date - sharp, witty and sour, like Raymond Chandler adapted to British gloom and the multiple betrayals of the private spy" ( Observer)
"Sheer consistent rightness page after page after page" ( The Times)
"Virtuoso top level performance" ( Guardian)
"A masterly performance, the best thing Deighton has done since SS-GB" ( Sunday Times)

The first book in a brilliant Cold War spy series

Would you consider the audio edition of Berlin Game to be better than the print version?

Yes, given the masterful narration that captures the nuances of British class differences and the German of the Berlin characters.

Which scene was your favorite?

Bernard and Werner remembering their schoolboy days in the ruins of Berlin post WW II. And, inevitably the dramatic scene where Bernard at last confronts the traitor within his unit.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

"Trust no one"

Any additional comments?

This is the opening volume of a nine book series featuring British agent Bernard Sampson, collectively the greatest set of spy novels ever written. I hope that Audible will quickly produce the next eight so that a new generation of listeners can enjoy these great books. Highly recommended.

Excellent SPY Drama, perfectly read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely. And I just did.

One of the better readers and audiobooks available. Great story, compelling and believable characters and a THEME that is timeless - Individualism. Something that both political parties in the US and England have forgotten. But with the rise of Russian totalitarianism and Islamic terrorism...well...this book is a must read.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Berlin Game?

The ending. Which will we not disclose as other have done on audible. What a silly question to ask.

Any additional comments?

Like John Le Carre but more sarcastic, witty, not quite as heavy handed or brilliant but thankfully, superior in philosophical outlook as compared with Le Carre's recent ideological turn.

Spy stories for mature audiences

Where does Berlin Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

After reading 'Spy Line' by the same author, I wish there was an option to listen to more books written by Len Deighton. In the world of "written books", the stunning abundance and over supply, results in "mass production & mediocrity", thus making the author of these books a delightful find. Highly recommended.

Great Book - don't get hooked

Any additional comments?

This is a great production of a great spy book. I really enjoyed it having read the books many years ago.

Just don't get hooked. Due to the stupid publishing rules you can't buy the rest of the trilogy Mexico Set and London Match.

Just as stupidly you can buy one or two books from the follow up trilogies, but not the complete set. I would willingly buy them. I'm just disappointed that Audible allows only a sampling of some classic British spy novels.

Must listen for those who love Berlin and the Cold War

I have read and listen to the Game Set Match series multiple times and even when I know the plot I delight in the construction and details of the characters and story. This may be too slow for some but I find that its rich setting and characters part too quickly. Recommended!

Deighton is the Master Spy.

My favorite book and I own all of the Bernard Samson's books. You can almost be in Berlin seeing it as it was before the wall came tumbling down.

A Taut Spy Thriller with Complicated Characters

Spy thrillers don't get any better than this. It's not just the intricate plot that will draw you in, but the deep cast of complex and utterly human characters, each of whom has some redeeming quality that you can help but empathize with, even the bad guys.

The narrator is excellent as well.

I can't recommend this one enough.

A spy novel for the intelligencia.

What did you love best about Berlin Game?

It was the antithesis of James Bond type shoot-em up style spy novel. This is a more realistic version of the cold war and the men and women who risked their lives in defense of their country.

Verdammt guter Sprecher!<br />

Nebst einer typisch guten und spannenden Geschichte von Len Deighton beherrscht es der englische Sprecher sogar ein solches Englisch zu produzieren, dass man merkt, dass die gesprochene Person eine Deutsche sein soll. Nebenbei kann er gekonnt eine schottische Figur neben einer britischen sprechen und dabei gekonnt fließend switchen. Dazu wirkt sein Rhythmus und Sprachfluss angenehm. Klare Empfehlung für das Hörbuch, da der Spannungsaufbau und die Verwirrungen, Irrungen und Wendungen für den Hörer/Leser immer wieder reizend sind.
