Tom Hiddleston adds his great voice to this unabridged reading of four short James Bond stories.
Octopussy, The Living Daylights and The Property of a Lady are read with the same cool and deep voice that makes this 4 CD set worth more than simply the words it conveys. There is also an interview with Hiddleston, which is not because of his excellent character portrayals in Spielberg's War Horse and Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris but rather his dark and sexy bad-boy character Loki in Thor and Avengers Assemble.
The last of the four stories is read by Lucy Fleming, better known to a generation as Jenny from Survivors. She as one of Fleming's two nieces, controls the estate and also delivers an excellent reading of her uncles work.
Hiddleston reads Flemings words like a long cold drink on a hot and humid night - his voice is full of the scent of 007, and enhances the sense of drama by just being the other side of the microphone!
Maybe we have a reading by Daniel Craig's successor here?
This set will cheer you through a few commutes, extend your adventure into modern literature and introduce you to the real James Bond and stories that inspired the movies.
This is an excellent buy, you will not be disappointed, buy it!
