The innocent, even academic, voice of British narrator Nadia May is miscast for the graphic seduction and sexual scenes common to Bond stories. Although she reads clearly, May's depiction of the heroine's sexual adventures is made unbelievable by her prim and proper voice. May's portrayal of Bond, police inspectors, gangsters, and violence in gruff, officious tones fails to match the personalities of the characters--or the story itself. However, sounds of bullets and screams renew the pace as Bond comes to the heroine's rescue. For those expecting a typical Fleming story, this will be a disappointment.
