These audio books reveal Ian Flemings iconic hero as the author created him rather than the version portrayed in film. This original Bond is a civil servant, reading memos in his office and eating in the firm's canteen. But when he is given an assignment, Bond's powerful individuality emerges and the action begins. We follow the action in familiar set pieces, where the readings reveal Bond's thinking, his planning, hopes, fears and mistakes.
Although each audio book has a different reader, it is easy to adjust to another voice. The quality is high, with familiar voices including Bill Nighy, Rory Kinnear, Hugh Bonneville and Damien Lewis.
This audio series will be enjoyed by both fans and listeners who would like to enjoy the original James Bond.
