Not even close to the musical movie

Well I have discovered that my favorite movie from childhood is only Very Loosely based on Ian Fleming's book of the same name.

The only thing familiar from the movie I love so much was the car and the kids' names, everything else is different, no grandpa, no Truly, no child catcher or Baron. It was very odd to have it be familiar yet not at the same time.

I’m still trying to get over how different this was than what I was expecting; it is more similar to the Bond stories than the musical movie is. There are crooks and their hideout and trying to get away. This was a fun book but just know it is nothing like the movie of your childhood.

David Tennant's narration was fabulous though, great accents and voices and characters! Tennant’s narration made this book even better.

Rollicking Good Fun!

Any additional comments?

When I heard the audio sample of this book with David Tenant's voice, I knew he would do a perfect narration of a lovely story and I was right. The story itself is a delight, but what he does with the various voices make this recording top-notch. It is unlike the movie as many have noted, and not typical Ian Fleming, but taken on its own merit it is a great adventure story with sly British humor woven throughout. A real treat for family listening.
