Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you wonder why James Bond remains popular sixty-one years after his creation, listen to David Tennant’s narration of this work. In this eleventh in the series, Bond finds true love, battles the evil Blofeld, and skis down a Swiss Alp at night with villains chasing him. What more does one need? David Tennant, evidently. Though we should have known that portraying the tenth Doctor Who would prepare an actor for the 007 mantle, Tennant’s ease in playing everyone from the suave British spy to a Sicilian mobster, Eastern European thugs, and five women (four English and one Russian) boggles the ear. Add a pleasant up-tempo delivery of the narrative and attuned pacing (whiz-bang in a fight, seductive in bed)—and it’s ‘Bond, James Bond.’ Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“A Bond bombshell.” Time
“Fleming at his urbanely murderous best, a notable chapter in the saga of James Bond.” Houston Chronicle
“This is Ian Fleming at his best, and better than that you just don’t get.” Hartford Courant
“No book comes closer to the heart of 007.” Val McDermid, bestselling author of Cross and Burn
