What did you like most about John le Carré Value Collection?
I could hardly believe how good the author is at narrating this story. Not only does he get all the accents right, he also delivers each line perfectly and as good, if not better than a trained actor.
Oftentimes when listening to authors reading their own books, I am unpleasantly surprised, not in this case. I hope Mr. le Carré will record more of his books.

Solid and entertaining stories with great narration by yhe author. One has tonpay attention as flashbacks and bits of infortmation that change the plot can be missed.

Generally I think it is a terrible mistake to let writers narrate their own books. Not so here. While I've gotten used to listening to Carre' through the voice of the late David Case (aka Fredrick Davidson) Carre's disenchantment with the powers of the Western World suits the cynical outlook of his characters. Carre' is as good a vocal actor as he is a writer of the cerebral thriller. Unlike the Smiley series, The Tailor of Panama is almost a comedy.
