    When Ernst Stavro Blofeld blasts into eternity the girl James Bond has married only hours before, the heart and zest for life goes out of Bond. M, unwilling to lose his best man, is persuaded to give him one last chance: an impossible mission far removed from his usual duties. Bond heads to Japan and a mysterious residence known as the "Castle of Death".

    What made the experience of listening to You Only Live Twice the most enjoyable?

    Simon Vance is a master with his voices. He gives each character their own unique personality through his intonations. Fleming's character come to life with his reading.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Bond of course.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I like Bond's interactions with his chief, M. In all of the Bond stories, these are the start of the adventure.

    When a parcel bomb explodes on Charles Denham's doorstep he realises that an enemy from the past is out to destroy him. This is the thrilling story of a man being hunted by an unidentified assassin across rural Buckinghamshire and then the Cotswolds in the mid 1950s.

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

    Live up to your description that it is unabridged. The abridgment leaves out far too much subtle detail that gives the story it's true flavor.
