The SilverFin audio book cover art has been revealed by publisher Puffin Books. The audio version of Young Bond #1 retails for £12.99 ($20.22 U.S.) and will be released on March 3, the same day as the UK paperback edition. As CBn first reported in October, author Charlie Higson will be reading the text himself.
Having the author read his own text is a first for a Bond novel, but in this case it’s a choice that makes sense. Besides being a novelist and a television writer, Higson is a talented performer, having achieved success in the BBC production The Fast Show.
Past James Bond audio books have been narrated by 007 veterans such as Joanna Lumley (who played one of Blofeld’s “Belles of Hell” in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) and Samantha “Moneypenny” Bond.
