Five short stories find James Bond facing danger from a variety of sources, all of which he escapes through fast thinking and even faster action. The suave, cultured British accent of Rintoul captures both the sophistication and complexity of Bond's personality, in addition to defining his nationality. His dramatizations convey the moods, nuances and personal traits of all the characters, whether they're Canadian, American, Italian or British. By softening his voice, changing his pace and mellowing his vocal tones, Rintoul realistically performs female voices, as well. Rintoul's expert performance enlivens the story and helps guarantee that Fleming's writings will remain popular with listeners. P.A.J. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
