    Ernst Stavro Blofeld, leader of the terrorist organisation SPECTRE, has hijacked an American plane loaded with atomic weapons. Unless his demands are met he will destroy one of the world’s major cities. With only one week to locate the missing bombs, Bond goes to the Bahamas where he encounters Blofeld’s right-hand man, Emilio Largo and his mistress Domino. With time running out, Bond learns that sharks are not the only killers in the Caribbean Sea.

  • The Doors: A Lifetime of Listening to Five Mean Years

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 45 mins)

    Story
    (5)

    A fan from the moment the Doors’ first album took over KMPX, the revolutionary FM rock ’n’ roll station in San Francisco, Greil Marcus saw the band many times at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom in 1967. Five years later it was all over. Forty years after singer Jim Morrison was found dead in Paris and the group disbanded, one could drive from here to there, changing from one FM pop station to another, and be all but guaranteed to hear two, three, four of the Doors’ songs in an hour - every hour.

    Quentin says: "The worst book ever written"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If you buy this book hoping to learn anything about the doors then don't bother. There is no factual information about the doors, no real research whatsoever. A total waste of time I'm afraid.


    What was most disappointing about Greil Marcus’s story?

    This book is the self indulgent ramblings of the author with no clear or relevant information to impart to the listener.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.
