    Story
    Would you listen to You Only Live Twice again? Why?

    A combination of the Author and the narrator. A very informed writer, and a perfect British dialect.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bond of course, although you can't help but love Kissey.


    What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

    I love Simon's ability to become different characters without distraction to the listener. He has an incredible ability to add the perfect inflection to his speech. A rare ability in my opinion.


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

    Bond at his best. Hold on to your gardening trowel.


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to most of Ian's Bond books, and this is one of the best.
