Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exciting sequences, especially the railroad scene, capture all the thrills one has come to expect.” Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill
“I can’t think of a bad time or place for listening to any of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels…Any of them will have you driving in circles rather than arrive at your destination.” Times (London)
“Fleming keeps you riveted.” Sunday Telegraph (London)
“Most people don’t think of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels as great literature, but that’s exactly how Kenneth Branagh, one of our finest actors, narrates this one. His performance is notable for exploring the subtleties of the villain Scaramanga and focusing on Bond’s interior life—both of which may surprise those who know 007 only through the films. The setting, more important here than in most novels, comes across as sensuous and menacing. There are moments when Branagh’s voice goes very quiet…the effect is mesmerizing…A marvelous reading.” AudioFile
