What did you love best about The Complete George Smiley Radio Dramas?

I love the repeatability of this performance. I own about 80 audio books here at audible and a lot more that I've collected over the years and I've listened to this one over and over and over again. Excellent work.

What other book might you compare The Complete George Smiley Radio Dramas to and why?

Possibly the Sherlock Holmes dramatizations but I've still listened to this one more often.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There were unexpected moments when it made me laugh. The accents are very well done and quite a few characters are real ... well characters.

Extreme reactions? I could do with a whiskey. I'm also a bit more partial to frogs.
