Description

CALL FOR THE DEAD by John le Carré (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

Call for the Dead marks the beginning of John le Carré's brilliant literary career as it launches the life of George Smiley, one of the most memorable fictional characters of the twentieth century, and immediately ensnares readers in the shadowy world he inhabits.

Pulled back from overseas duty during World War II, George Smiley was redirected to face the threats of the Cold War. Investigating circumstances that make no sense to him, he meets a twisted former hero of the German underground, a once beautiful woman with a terrifying secret, a high-ranking pompous bureaucrat, and a suspect British civil servant. Smiley is bitter and weary––he has seen too much and done too much––yet he cannot refuse one last desperate call for his services. He gradually uncovers a spy ring and is led into a lethal duel of wits with the best of his war-time pupils.

Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.

NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator, Ralph Cosham. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

• EXPERIENCE. About 4.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults who are fans of the George Smiley series of novels, as well as spy intrigue.

_

“A subtle and acute story of counter-espionage marked by restraint, indirection, and intelligence.” (New York Times Book Review)

“The premier spy novelist of his time and perhaps of all time….” (Time magazine)

“Le Carré is a brilliant linguistic artist with a keen eye for the exotic and not-so-exotic locale, a crafty moralizer with an occasional bent for sentiment.” (Wall Street Journal)
