"Three James Bond novellas come alive in [Simon Vance's] expert hands....[Vance] gives Bond a smooth, urbane voice, managing not to reflect any of the actors who've played the British spy on screen. He also nimbly handles the major's inner dialogue in Octopussy." (AudioFile)
I wasted a credit by buying this. I already had these stories on Quantum Solace. The stories are great, but I'm leaving the "rate" at one star because I was deceived.
The action-oriented espionage classics by Ian Fleming are always an enjoyable read, or in this case, listen. The audio is great, and the narrator's voice and accent create an enthralling, believable production of the literature.
Storyline was great. Narration was on par with the storyline.as usual Fleming excites the reader and draws him/her into the action.
