Chivers Audio Books - read by David Rintoul

I recently managed to complete my collection of these! thats the first 14 written by Fleming and read by David Rintoul (except the Rula Lenska one obviously). Plus 2 I didnt know existed until recently written by John Gardner, also read by Rintoul with the same box art and all. So thats all 16!

Anyway I have converted these to MP3 and have been listeneing to them in order since November time and im only half way through Dr. No. It occured to me that you chaps might also appreciate these hard to find audio books, if so drop me a message or email and we'll sort something out. Im not selling for profit but if you cover the post and cd costs you can have yourselves a copy :).

    and all were this style of box art:

    Highly recommend these.

    Rintoul's Bond can slip into cod-Connery from time to time, but being unabridged they wonderfully highlight Fleming's superb writing.

    What could be better - out and about or in the car with Fleming's brilliant words in your ear. Forget the films; this is th real James Bond.

    I was glad to get these so quickly; my local library threw out all their audio cassettes including some of these! David Rintoul is much better than other readers I've heard. Thanks, Candyman2!

    Hi Candyman2,
    Just PM'ed you about these.
    Dryden: How did he die?
    James Bond: Your contact? Not well.
    Dryden: Made you feel it, did he? Well, you needn't worry. The second is...
    James Bond: Yes... considerably.

    Hello Candyman 2, I'll have a copy please, if you send me a PM with the details, costs etc, thanks.

    I have most of the originals on cassette and can't recommend them enough, but wanted them on cd, now I've got an i-pod and can't think of a better addition -I take it you can sync these to an i-pod? (tech things go over my head :s), thanks.

    Wow, those covers bring back memories :) I listened to them all on tape in the mid 90s, and irritated many a librarian with late returns :)

    If possible, I'd love to get copies of them if they're still available.

    If you could, email me at or PM me on here. Thanks so much for making these available as I've been looking all around for them!

    Hi candyman2, I know it's been a few years since you started this thread, but I was wondering if you were still making copies of the audiobooks?

    I first listened to these when I was 15 and I really want to relive them! I can't find them anywhere else.

    Please candyman2, you're my only hope!
