    "Several improvements in this book."

    I have to say all the books in this series have been pretty good. I like this one best so far. That is because the author finally settles in to tell the story and tones down the constant braggadocio about the droods. That was the only real complaint I had with the series and now that it is better this was a pleasure to read.

    The narrarator changed, but I like him better anyway. Mr. Langdon has a better range than the previous person and the voices are not quite so cartoony. So, two thumbs up for this one. If you liked the other books in the series you will definitely enjoy this one as well.

    "Audiobook series are driven by narration!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have stayed with Stuart Blinder as narrator. I didn't care for himat first but he grew on me after a couple of books. I am sure Mr. Langdon is a competent narrator, but his voice changed the character of the book series in an unforgivable way.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of James Langdon?

    Stuart Blindor or Marc Vietor


    Was The Spy Who Haunted Me worth the listening time?

    Not particularly.


    Any additional comments?

    I see that there is yet another narrator change for the next book. I hope his take on the characters is better.

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

    Yes the voices are so exciting and brings the characters to life.


    What other book might you compare The Spy Who Haunted Me to and why?

    I cant compare it to any other book. The series is a one of a kind.


    What about James Langdon???s performance did you like?

    Loved it. He throws himself into the story


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I would not want to make it into a movie. Movies are great but imagination is better.


    Any additional comments?

    He should narrate all the Simon green syfy series.

    "An Average Listen"

    I love a lot of Simon Green's work. This one is a little contrived, however. Eddie Drood is thrown into this game, but it's not save the world kind of stuff that Droods are known for. It's an OK listen, but not Green's best. Langdon does his usual good job at narration.

    "New Narrator Review"

    I think they try hard to find similar narrator but I still think this one is duller. I prefer the old narrator even if it's just because you get used to it after 2 books.

    "THE SPY WHO HAUNTED ME"

    WELL WE GO SCREWED ON THE THIRD BOOK. THE FIRST TWO BOOKS WERE GREAT. THE NARRATION WAS BY STUART BLINDER AND WAS INTENSE AND RIVETING AS WELL. NOW THE POWERS TO BE HAVE CHANGED TO JAMES LANGTON. HE IS DULL AND HARD TO FOLLOW. ITS LIKE TRYING TO GET IN TO A BAD BOOK. I WISH I COULD TELL YOU ABOUT THE BOOK ITSELF, BUT DIDNT FINISH THE BOOK
