I have not read any Fleming before and was probably judging him unfairly based only on the movies, but the book was well constructed and the writing much better than expected, I think I thought it would be more comic book style. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Dan Stevens does a good job of the narration - maybe even a little hint of Connery about the phrasing and cadence every now and then.
Only as a add-on to other Japanese study material, the lack of a written refernce is a bit of a problem
Not really applicable
Helpful to hear Japanese when you are studying it
A more believable story line, far too many 'just introduced' elements with no logic attached. The love story thread was simply annoying and frustrating and no resolution delivered.
She did as good a job as she could have, just not sure such a light voice was suited to what was basically a fairly violent and heavy story, it just did not jell.
The final battle scene and the ending, just made you think you were being treating like an idiot who would not notice the flaws in the plot
The whole thing just jelled and worked as a total
Not edge of your seat sort of stuff really, more just sort of always interesting
The reading was surprising, you really felt the relationship between the main character and Maggie (the dog)
The story had it's problems really, but the narration was good enough to smooth over them. Considering the age of the book now it has lasted well.
Not sure, maybe an early version of Hunger Games, bit more reality based.
The rhythm and cadence is just right.
Not really, just engaging right from the start.
The whole thing is a big picture
Live it as best you can
It's Michael's life as written and read by Michael. Loved it
The narration style of Sir Ian McKellan
A very unique rhythm to the narration that keeps you listening with no fatigue at all despite this being a very long epic
The narration is very true to the feel of the series, particularly the main character.
Story is involving and interesting, the outcome is believable and not intelligence insulting.
Recommended only as a starting point. The hard copy book has much more detail that is of considerable value and use.
Not really interested in abridged versions anymore.
