Simon Vance is a great reader. Thankfully he has been the only voice for 007 to this point. Makes it real easy and familiar to read... a continuation from book to book.
Still enjoyable as a 007 book. Least enjoyable was the let down of the quickness of the story. It was over way too soon... only one quick adventure and a drawn-out ending. Sadly, that's audio books for you, though. You'll not know how many more pages are left (few or a lot) and then you hit the end and cannot believe it. That's how I felt with Dr. No. However, it's difficult for a late writer to adjust his further works.
Only listened to Simon Vance in the 007 series. Again, the familiarity from book to book makes 007 more realistic... believable. He's never been rushed while reading, and, as he is an entertainer, he can deliver the lines with perfection.
I COULD have listened to it in one sitting. And yes, I could have easily enjoyed it in one sitting.
I would definitely recommend "It" to a friend. In fact I already have recommended it a few times.
Cannot really compare it. It was long and scary and fun and a lot of the enjoyment was because of Steven Weber.
I enjoyed the battle scene as the characters were adults. Weber really got into it.
Just really enjoyed "It".
I read this book many years ago. The length of it made it easy to lose track of info and story lines. With Steven Weber reading it to me as I train for triathlon, I can understand the story and enjoy it much more. "It" is a fantastic story. But being so long it loses its allure. Being read the story in such the fashion that Steven Weber got into it I kept track of the story and it always was fresh in my mind.
