James Bond: The Collection47 books in series
Meet Agent 007, MI6's most dangerous spy. His name is Bond—James Bond.
Discover (or revisit) Ian Fleming's classic spy thrillers in this collection of James Bond audiobooks, which includes 12 novels and two short story collections. James Bond is exceptionally good at his job, which means he's often called upon for near-impossible missions. Whether it's destroying a Soviet spy at the baccarat table, investigating shady millionaires, ducking Russian assassins, or breaking up a dangerous diamond smuggling ring, 007 is on the case. With his good looks, snappy retorts, and penchant for fast cars, cool gadgets, hot women, and daredevil moves, James Bond is one of the most memorable and famous fictional characters in history.
The James Bond Collection boasts a star-studded cast of narrators, with a different actor performing each of Fleming's celebrated novels. The notable voices include Dan Stevens, Rory Kinnear, Bill Nighy, Damian Lewis, Toby Stephens, Hugh Quarshie, Hugh Bonneville, Samuel West, Jason Isaacs, Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, Martin Jarvis, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Hiddleston, and Lucy Fleming. Each of these audiobooks also features an exclusive interview with the narrator.
The James Bond spy adventures have inspired a billion-dollar movie franchise, spurring the creation of more Bond books after Ian Fleming's death. If you want to stay true to the original 15 novels, start with Casino Royale and continue in numerical order. But do feel free to hop around and pick up any of the authorized sequels penned by Kingsley Amis, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks, Jeffery Deaver, William Boyd, and Anthony Horowitz. Most of those audiobooks are narrated by Simon Vance, offering a consistent voice for 007.
