    David Rintool is good, but I think the ones read by Robert Whitfield are even better.

    Also, I quite like the radio drama's that feature Toby Stephens as James Bond. They create the perfect atmosphere with different voice actors and background sounds and music. They're not audiobooks of course, but they're quite fun to listen to, and there not that long either:

    Here's an example of FRWL:

    They also did one for DN, GF and OHMSS, which should all be on YouTube as well :)

    Can anyone recommend any of the continuation novels? I intend to download Colonel Sun & License Renewed at some point but what others should I be looking out for & why?
  • AlphaOmegaSinAlphaOmegaSin EnglandPosts: 10,924MI6 Agent
    For Gardner, his earlier Books were better. I especially recommend For Special Services, Role Of Honor and Nobody Lives Forever. All three of those Books deal with SPECTRE -{

    No Deals Mr Bond, Scorpius and his License To Kill Novelization I also recommend you pick up. Win Loose Or Die is rather dull though.

    For Benson, I suggest The Facts Of Death.

    I decided to have a look around one of the local Charity Shops Today, and by Luck I found David Rintoul's Reading of From Russia With Love (On Cassette)

    Yep ! I bought a disc, -{ and I bought a few of the new novels on disc and copied
    Them to mp3. They can be picked up cheaply on eBay, the ones I got were all
    Second hand but looked brand new. :)

    The 007 Reloaded Range?

    They are very good Readings. Toby Stephens did FRWL and he put quite a bit of Passion into his Voice.

    I'm currently listening to Dr No. I find audiobooks to be the perfect solution - allowing me to 'read' while dodging about the place. It's a long time since I read the book & I have half forgotten what a cracking story it is. One very minor mistake which IF makes though is the part where the motor launch has been sent to look for Bond, Honey & Quarrel. Fleming describes the deck mounted machine gun as an MG42 but then goes onto to say that a lull in the firing is as a result of the magazine being changed. I've included a short video link to allow you to spot the deliberate mistake.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwW31u6wYvE

    According to Fleming the last time Bond heard the sound of the MG42 was in the Ardennes 1944.

    Audible has a lot of the Bond novels as audiobook. All the Fleming, Gardner, Benson novels and CB, DMC and TM. Also, it has the Monneypenny diaries and the Young Bond novels AND a lot of books about Bond like The Music of James Bond, Bond on Bond (read by Sir Roger himself) and the Bedside Companion.

    I find the sudio books a great way of passing the time, either out walking
    or on a long drive. -{

    Yes me too, I live about a 30 minute walk from my work so I spend at least an hour a day listening to audiobooks. I prefer non-fiction to fiction when commuting to and from work so I listen to a lot of management books, language courses and am a great fan of the Great Courses series. However, once in a while I do pop in a novel.

    The BBC Bond radio dramas are another good listen. I downloaded them all from you tube. At about 90 minutes each they are ideal to listen to in one go when the situation allows. Toby Stevens makes a great radio Bond & overall they are well acted.

    Is there anyone here who owns the Audiobooks of Diamonds Are Forever and You Only Live Twice by Simon Vance ? (a.k.a Robert Whitfield)

    I do have these two as read by David Rintoul, but I like Vance/Whitfield a lot better and would love to fill up these final gaps in my collection. (As I do have all the other Fleming novels read by Vance.)

    I've been trying to purchase these final two on several websites. Inaudible only allows credit cards (which is not a common thing here in Holland, so I don't have one.) I tried to purchase it on Estories using Paypal, turns out the audiobooks weren't in my region. And so on to websites that claimed to have them for free but putting you on a 30 trial which did once again needed credit card details.

    So if anyone has these two on .mp3 format, I would be willing to trade for it with any other audiobooks read by Vance/ Whitfield. :)

    Okay, so forget my last post :p I have just found a way to purchase the ones I was missing by letting the website think I was actually in a different region using some sort of extention that changes my IP adress or something... (Technical stuff, but hey I found it out :) )

    In other words, I have now bought the remaining audiobooks I was missing -{ And with that my collection is complete :)

    Can't wait to finally make my way through all of these ones and for all! I love reading the actual books with the narrator, and Vance is superb with all the accents and voices, highly recommend his audiobooks the most out the ones I tried -{
