TOO BAD TO DIE

by | Read by Matthew Brenher

Mystery & Suspense • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

This audiobook resembles good fan fiction, with problems. It features Ian Fleming, who is forced by circumstance to pose as a secret agent called James Bond as he tries to foil a Nazi plot to murder Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt all in one morning, mid-war, in Tehran. With the D-Day invasion hanging in the balance, the plot is equal parts exciting and silly. You can't build much mystery around whether Fleming or the leaders of the free world are going to survive. But the real problem is Matthew Brenher's weird mispronunciations--like "inconGREWous," and worst, "RUEsevelt" instead of "ROSEvelt." Maddening when heard scores of times, as it necessarily is here. It's a family's name; the pronunciation isn't a mystery. B.G. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
