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?

Stunning... just stunning

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

Very enjoyable and fun to listen to. The story is engaging and makes you want to listen right until the end. Packed with adventure and nail-biting moments. I will definitely be buying the next in the series!

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.
