    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I heard these stories in bits and pieces on satellitie radio. When I first started listening to them downloaded to my device I can't get enough. James Marsters really makes you feel like you are there and it is real.If you love scifi and magic this series is great. Even if you don't it's funny serius and sometimes sad. Listen I don't think you will be dissapointed.

    It was just a fun listen


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    He made you feel like you were there

    The moments when Charlie saw his girlfriend after she was shot. I felt like I was involved with these characters.

    Story
    (725)

    Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome, chillingly ruthless, and licensed to kill. This, the first of Ian Fleming's tales of secret agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called "Le Chiffre" by ruining him at the Baccarat table, forcing his Soviet spymasters to "retire" him. It seems that lady luck has sided with 007 when Le Chiffre hits a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Casino Royale to be better than the print version?

    I don't read as much as I used to. I have about an hour commute each way so I like to listen to audio books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Having watched the movie I really enjoyed the book. It was different but yet I thought it made the character more real. I could see this being made back when Sean Connery was bond but yet it worked in the movies with the current Bond.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The torture scenes were hard.

    What did you love best about The Monuments Men?

    Watched the movie first. Quite a bit different. Great book but did drag on a little. Overall I enjoyed it quite a lot and some very good history also.


    What does Jeremy Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I like to hear books. It brings it to life better.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have enjoyed each book in this series. I felt that this was better than the earlier ones. All I can say is if you want action you get it with these books and this doesn't disappoint.


    What about James Marsters’s performance did you like?

    I like his performance and how he can do all these different voices. He makes them believable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to these books on my way to work. I have about an hour commute each way and sometimes I just want to keep listening. I don't want to stop. As soon as the book is over I want to start a new one.
