The story was fast paced and moved very well.
Raylan Givens gives the reader a consistent presence to guid through the book.
This was my first listen to this narrator. Honestly he was just ok.
Super great read! Now I have a great base for the FX show.
Young Bond book two Blood Fever is better than Silverfin in my opinion. This is the first book in this series that the reader and/or listeners get to experience Bond travel the world well at least out of England. Bond fans get to meet more of 007s family. Also, Higson creates the danger society for James to have some structure. Just like in Silverfin The narrator is awesome. Enjoy this novel its another page turner.
In truth, the Young Bond series had me more than nervous. When IFP announced that they had commissioned Charlie Higson a comedian to pen the series. However, he is an obvious 007 fan because he definitely stays true to the spirit of the character. Any Bond fan should definitely read this series because Higson very smartly throws in bits and pieces of the 007 legacy in the novels and gives us reasons why Bond is the way he is. Silverfin being the first of five novels (so far) must be read first. The characters are rich and feel like Ian Fleming himself could have pinned them. The Narrator's voices for each charater is amazing and the same narrator does all three in the series that are currently in audible. In my opinion, Silverfin is a page turner when I read it in book form I couldn't put it down and again when I listened to it I couldn't stop. The Young Bond series is the perfect way to introduce a child to the wonderful world of 007. May anyone who reads or listens to this book be shaken and stirred.
