Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fleming is splendid; he stops at nothing.” New Statesman
“Do not miss this…Mr. Fleming continues to be irresistibly readable.” Observer (London)
“If you’ve forgotten how wonderful Fleming’s books are as books, you are in for a huge treat. Bill Nighy’s James Bond is a man who knows he can fail, a man who might not get the girl. That quality marries beautifully with Fleming’s high-octane plotting, Cold-War style. There’s a duel between Bond’s souped-up Bentley and the ghastly Sir Hugo Drax’s Mercedes, which Nighy makes hair-raising. Even better is a veddy British scene in which Bond must catch Drax cheating at cards at a London gentlemen’s club. Drax and his crypto-fascist henchmen are cartoonish, red meat to Nighy; the voice he creates for the loathsome Krebs is particularly entertaining. Most impressively, Nighy convinces you that this Bond is a real human being.” AudioFile
