Rosamund Pike narrates new The Spy Who Loved Me audiobook

Actress Rosamund Pike, who played Miranda Frost in the 2002 James Bond film, Die Another Day, tells WENN that she recently did a new audiobook reading for Ian Fleming's The Spy Who Loved Me.

"I do a lot of audio books just for fun because I like using voice to create character. Most recently I've done one of the James Bond novels, The Spy Who Loved Me, which is coming out. It's the only one that was narrated by a woman. They're releasing the whole audio set of all 20 original Fleming/Bond novels next year."

Wait, did she say 20 books? Of course, Fleming only did 14 James Bond novels, so what are the additional six titles? The Young Bond books maybe? Or might we see select audiobook recordings of other adult continuation novels?

By the way, various media outlets are saying Pike is "the first woman to ever voice a 007 audiobook." Not so. Samantha Bond, who portrayed Miss Moneypenny in the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, narrated several of the Bond novels, as has former Bond Girl Joanna Lumley (On Her Majesty's Secret Service).
