Stunning... just stunning

Exciting, disquieting in places. Drama, excellent vocab, and a truly dramatic crescendo of a climax. Thoroughly recommended. ps. Im 44.

The Beginning...

If you could sum up Young Bond: Silverfin in three words, what would they be?

Licence to thrill

What other book might you compare Young Bond: Silverfin to, and why?

Skeleton Key by Anthony Horowitz, because Alex Rider could give James Bond a good run for his money

Have you listened to any of Nathaniel Parker’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes he is as good as ever and makes it come to life

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Licence to thrill

Any additional comments?

My children loved it!

My children really enjoyed this and a long car journey went much more quickly. They felt that the female voices were a bit samey but are already nagging me to get the next one!

Great book

Silverfin is a really great audiobook. I have read the book awhile back and enjoyed and now listening to the story has reinvigorated my passion for these books. I have several in my Wishlist to get ready to buy and listen too

Good story, characters and credibility.

A step up from the alex rider series in terms of character and story. Recommended for those who have started to tire of the incredible twists of alex rider.

Loved it!

Really great story for all the family and created a scary tension in the car on long journeys! Great to pause when needed and discuss issues, and the 'scary' parts are well done and entertaining. Thought provoking for younger tween listeners, and well written for adults too.

Never disappointed with 007

Would you consider the audio edition of Young Bond: Silverfin to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print, I shall now do so so stay tuned for this comment.......

What did you like best about this story?

it gives a background for where Bond would have started from which cements the story of the adult Bond series

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of them!!!

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

Definitely, it's a pity I could not since real life gets in the way, gosh darn it!!! :)

Any additional comments?

I am a die-hard (excuse the pun!!) 007 fan so I loved this book and it was fantastic to hear where it all started to so to speak, I know it's all fiction but it's the best fiction I have read/listened to for a long time!!! - I give it an infinite score /10!!!
