I have been a keen fan of John Le Carre for a long time, this dramatisation is excellent. It is at the right pace for the story to unfold the actors fit their roles as though they were made for them and the device of having the character Ann play an active role in the story shows the other side of Smiley. This is a superb piece of work as are the others in this series, and thanks Audible for making the recordings available so quickly after broadcast.

What would have made Smiley's People (Dramatised) better?
I love this book, but disliked the dramatization. It rushed through a very involved, intricate puzzle-box of a novel, losing both the tone and rhythm of the book. If I hadn't read the book, and seen the miniseries, I'd have been completely lost. I realize that a dramatization differs (often dramatically) from its source, but this one cut too much, and raced through what remained.
eautifully read and produced and a thoroughly engaging narrative. Can?t wait to listen to it again.
