The beginning of this audio is confusing as the author starts with fast-paced action, nonstop dialogue, and the introduction of a team of six teenage spies, the Bond Team, who are on a mission against an archenemy. Richard Aspel manages to help listeners keep the plot straight and portrays an evil-sounding enemy and a vitriolic leader. Otherwise, Aspel has a hard time differentiating the six characters, who seem to be chosen for "PC" representation in a story loaded up with techno-gadgets and teen talk. Aspel can't make up for author's lack of character development, but fans of futuristic adventures may be sufficiently entertained. S.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
