  • "Much more than I expected"

    Overall

    I usually choose an audio book because of the narrator not the author, so having seen the movie of “From Russia With Love” I felt this would be an easy choice, albeit not a very adventurous one. I couldn’t have been more wrong. The book contains much more depth, some fascinating characters that never made it to film, and a completely side to Bond which makes him much more fallible, vulnerable and therefore interesting as the central figure. Toby Stephens is excellent as always. He provides light and shade to the characters and his narration adds tension to the plot without ever seeming OTT. Well worth a try.

    Dan Brown's new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces. As Dan Brown comments: "Although I studied Dante's Inferno as a student, it wasn't until recently, while researching in Florence, that I came to appreciate the enduring influence of Dante's work on the modern world."

    They say Black Dow's killed more men than winter, and clawed his way to the throne of the North up a hill of skulls. The King of the Union, ever a jealous neighbour, is not about to stand smiling by while he claws his way any higher. The orders have been given and the armies are toiling through the northern mud. Thousands of men are converging on a forgotten ring of stones, on a worthless hill, in an unimportant valley, and they've brought a lot of sharpened metal with them.
