    James Bond is challenged by a maniacal superfiend: the world's cleverest, cruelest criminal. Complications abound. A beautiful golden girl turns up dead, and a friendly game of two-handed canasta turns into a deadly game of survival with ever-rising stakes: 15 billion dollars worth of U.S. government bullion. But 007 knows that Auric Goldfinger's rules remain brutally simple: heads I win, tails you die.

    DARBY KERN says: "One of Fleming's better books"

    Where does Goldfinger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank it on a scale of 1 to 10, about 8.5


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am comparing this story to the movie I saw back in the sixties. For a
    change, the movie actually stuck fairly close to the book, with some Chauvinistic deletions. Certain subject matterwas not transferred from book to movie. I love the suspense and the pure evil of Goldfinger. The scheme was well thought out!


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    Goldfinger.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I can't think of one that has not been done already.


    Any additional comments?

    I may check out some other early Fleming novels for comparison.
