    Story
    (189)

    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"
    "Good story, not Flemings best, in my opinion."

    If you could sum up Goldfinger in three words, what would they be?

    Murder, Smuggling, Super-villans


    What other book might you compare Goldfinger to and why?

    Very similar to Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die. Similarities exist in both stories between villans which are running personal smuggling ring, with a loose attachmnt to James Bond's arch enemy SMERSH.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    Simon Vance does a great job during his performance. For now on anytime I read a Bond novel I will always have Vance's character voices in mind for characters such as Bond, M, etc.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to the book over a couple nights before bed.


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, a little far fetched in the end, but wraps up into a good story.
