Publisher's Summary

The life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency...until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped. The action ricochets across the globe to a volcanic Greek island, where Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China collaborates with an ex-Nazi atrocity expert in a world-menacing conspiracy.
Stripped of all professional aids, Bond faces, unarmed, the monstrous devices of Colonel Sun in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical endurance.

Good Story Appalling editing

What would have made Colonel Sun better?

Throughout the reading there are areas of repeated lines where they have done different takes. It really jars and disrupts the flow of the story.


What did you like best about this story?

Interesting and unique storyline


Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Simon Vance?

Im not a fan of Simon Vance, his accents are questionable at best - for example one of the characters seems to fluctuate between Russian, Greek and American!? Martin Jarvis is the best Bond Narrator in my opinion.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Colonel Sun?

All the repeated sections!

Not Bond standard!

Having read the outstanding Trigger Mortis by Anthony Horowitz, Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver and Solo by William Boyd - all superb Bonds, this was a poor relation in terms of plot, Bond "slickness" and narration. The narrator seemed to struggle with the range of accents as well as the female characters and made Bond sound akin to a Leslie Phillips type character. As they used to say on Mastermind, I started it so had to finish it.....but wished I hadn't bothered.
