I can’t think of a bad time or place for listening to any of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels… Any of them will have you driving in circles rather than arrive at your destination.

In 2012 Ian Fleming’s Bond novels were released as brand new audiobooks. Read by a spectacular cast of British acting talent including Bill Nighy, Damian Lewis, Hugh Bonneville, David Tennant and Sir Kenneth Branagh. Over three years in the making, the project was the brainchild of Lucy Fleming, Ian Fleming’s niece, and was headed by distinguished director Enyd Williams. They worked closely with the readers to create an exciting, modern take on the new, unabridged recordings of these classic books.

In 2013 Ian Fleming’s two collections of short stories, For Your Eyes Only and Octopussy and The Living Daylights were released, read by the very talented Samuel West and Tom Hiddleston.
