    "Good Book, Terrible Narrator"

    The book was hard to pay attention to because of Mr. Doyle. I'm sure there are a lot of books he reads well, however this one was not among the list. I would listen to 10 mins of this book and not remember anything I heard. I kept starting over - this was the most tedious listen I've experienced. I wanted to listen to the story so I pressed on. I purchased Book 5 in paper form as I cannot find it read by anyone else than Mr. Doyle. Please bring back Nathaniel Parker.

    "Great Book"

    If you're a fan of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels this Young Bond series is a must read. The stories take place in the correct time line to Fleming's original novels (late 30's)before WWII. Can't wait for the fifth book 'By Royal Command' which isn't available in the US yet.

    "Sad departure from the frist three very good books"

    I am not sure how much the narrator colored my impression of this book, but this was my least favorite of the series so far. Eoin Colfer made the mistake of having someone else read his Artemis Fowl books, only to realize the mistake and bring back the amazing Nathaniel Parker.

    I found the story to be lackluster with no real suspense. After all these are tales of Young James Bond, we know he is not going to die, and we know he is going to grow up to be the greatest spy the world has ever known. The Rat Run that is the focus of the finale of the book loses a great deal of suspense because you know he will make it through unscathed.

    All in all, this book would have been an entertaining distraction if read by Nathaniel Parker, but Gerard Doyle made a dull book that much worse.
