[This is for the audiobook CD (the other was for a pre-loaded audiobook)]
Like the others (God Bless The Child; A Mercy), this is read - quite poorly - by the author. The story is easier to follow than the other two, but its nearly impossible to discriminate between various characters during dialogue, and various characters when there are shifts in the point of view. Really, someone should tell them to hire a professional reader and audio engineer (listen to the newer audiobooks of Le Carre's novels to hear how well it can be done).
The biggest shortcoming is that the main narrator and character is a male - and an old woman is (trying to) speak his voice! The story itself, its phrasing and plot (it gets disgusting (very morally repulsive) at the end like in God Bless The Child) is terrific, insofar as I could tell; its certainly worth the effort to read the book.
After the fourteenth time it inexplicably reset before getting less than halfway through the second chapter, I couldn't tolerate it further. Weren't these pre-loaded audiobooks supposed to be more reliable?
There are 10 great comments already written under the 'book' section. Also the average rating is 4 stars! I expect I will enjoy this audio just as much as I would the book form.
