a good listen well crafted, but

devoid of any real plot or conclusion, drifting to an end. certainly not his best work, but articulate well crafted and enjoyable none the less.

Deliciously poetic!

Would you listen to Our Game again? Why?

The plot and writing captures me time and time again.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The twists are unexpected and nothing is as it seems. Classic Le Carre!
