Description

Smiley, wrestling with retirement and disillusionment, is summoned to a secret meeting with a member of the Cabinet Office. Evidence has emerged that the Circus has been infiltrated at the highest level by a Russian agent. 'Find the mole, George. Clean the stables. Do whatever is necessary.' Reluctantly Smiley agrees, and so embarks on a dark journey into his past a past filled with love, duplicity and betrayal.

Starring the award-winning Simon Russell Beale as Smiley, and with a star cast including Anna Chancellor, Alex Jennings, Kenneth Cranham, and Bill Paterson, this epic dramatisation brilliantly depicts the complicated moral dilemmas of those who practice post-war espionage and illuminates the murky corners of le Carré's classic spy thriller - the first in the Karla trilogy.

Atmospheric, powerful production

I have read and listened to different interpretations of John le Carre's work over 20 years this is as good as any previous productions including the those with Bernard Hepton and Alec Guiness. Simon Russell Beale has just the right air of world weariness for George Smiley, Ann his wife's part has been extended beautifully to add context. This production adds to others I have and I shall enjoy it again and again.

Poor dramatization of a masterpiece

There are many bad things about this dramatization, but the worst is the casting of Smiley. You get the impression that he's young and talkative, which is absurd. The people who did this should have listened to previous renderings, including the reading of the unabridged version on Audible, which with all its faults is far superior to this. I wish I hadn't bought it.

Poor substitute for a good reading

I have the Listen for Pleasure releases of the John LeCarre Smiley series on cassette. Bad assumption on my part that these dramatizations would be comparable. If you love the John LeCarre series of Smiley books. Don't listen to these, they'll put you completely off the genre! This is the first Audible selection that I actually deleted out of my library.

Dashing!

Splendid and authentic rendition of the Cold War cloak and dagger game. Another fine innings by John LeCarre!

Difficult to follow

This is the first dramatized audio book I have listened to and I found it very hard to follow. It's like radio, and I often couldn't distinguish the characters, nor follow the story line. I was intrigued but frustrated. I didn't finish it. This story was too complicated to listen this way.

It fails

Lacks narrative power. Cheesy effects distract rather than entertain. And chopped to fit. Procrustean solution failed. Blurred a good book.

No

Dramatisation = Distracting

Was Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Dramatised) worth the listening time?

No, I would have preferred a single narrator to a cast, especially for a story like Tinker Tailor that has so much going on. I had a hard time figuring out who was talking and it really took away from the overall story.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend skipping this audio book version until their is a single narrator, unabridged version available.

Listen in Order

Last of a long storyline. I don't know if I'll listen to the preceding books in the series now, knowing the end. I should have looked into that.
