It's some project where famous British actors read James Bond. (Jason Isaacs will read Thunderball).

We can preorder from Aug 1. :D

Nice! Love Bond, especially the books. I hope they will be available for folks in the US, too.

Jason AND David Tennant, Hugh Bonneville, and Bill Nighy! whoot!

Flippin' 'eck.

That's quite a line-up. Talk about aural pleasures.

Interesting choices, with Rosamund Pike being the only female. Both she and Toby Stephens were Die Another Day.

Thanks, Thunder.

One must tweet or have a Facebook page to hear it. I don't do/have either. I'll wait till the audio book is available for sale. Was gonna buy it anyway.

Jason's bit was really good...but that was SO obvious. Actually, so were a couple of other's too...but I have my favorite already picked out. LN

This is a slight non-sequitur, but still vaguely on topic. Yes, he does have an excellent reading voice. I've listened to several of his audio books, and most recently I listened to A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness (which just won two awards, fyi). Not only did Jason do a wonderful job with the audio, but the story itself is bittersweet and heartwrenching (even if it is a "children's book"). As a daughter of a breast cancer survivor, whose mother was diagnosed when I was an adult, the book thoughtfully dealt with the fear/anger that a child (no matter the age) can/will feel at the possible loss of a too-young parent. Jason has an dab hand at doing several characters. (And I can't wait to hear him as a seductive Bond girl -LOL!) And - as a bonus- Jason even did a Q&A at the end, although, he won't be able to do that with Fleming--unfortunately. Can't wait! Bond and Jason - really, the combo is too good.

I've always thought that Jason would make a terrific Bond "BADDIE" (not that I would mind hearing him say Bond, James Bond...LOL)

Thanks Beth for that link!! :hug
