John le Carré
The master of modern spy novel, John le Carré's works are available for your listening pleasure in an impressive range of CD and MP3 audiobook titles from AudioGO.
From his breakthrough work The Spy Who Came In From The Cold, published in 1963, le Carré specialised in the intrigues of Cold War-era espionage, giving us fascinating vignettes through which to view the very real political trepidation of the times. That novel is available here as two audiobooks - both as an unabridged reading, read by Michael Jayston, and as a full cast BBC dramatisation featuring Simon Russell Beale as George Smiley.
Among le Carré's most famous novels is Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - the first of his 'Karla' trilogy and newly popular again following the recent film adaptation starring Gary Oldman. Here you can choose from a full cast dramatisation, in which Simon Russell Beale reprises the role of Smiley - or you can choose an unabridged reading of the original novel, read by Michael Jayston. Both are available as CD audiobook or MP3 download.
You'll find over 20 John le Carré audiobook titles in our collection, either as downloadable MP3 audiobooks or as books on CD. AudioGO, formerly BBC Worldwide, is the leading UK supplier of audiobooks from the BBC and other publishers.
