I can't quite account for the magnetism of Larry McKeever's mellifluous reading of James Fennimore Cooper's The Last of the Mohicans (Recorded Books, 15hrs 30m, pounds 47, or call 0171-731 6262 for mail-order rental). It is quite simply unturnoffable: maybe that's what books of legendary fame are about.

The elusive John le Carre reads his new novel Our Game (Hodder, 6hrs, pounds 7.99) with chill panache. Even better are his four unique prefaces which offer a remarkable insight into his working life and political and personal ideals, and go far towards explaining the power of his books.
