This was my second listen to Goldfinger and it held up about as well as I remembered. It is a solid novel although the plot is a bit more unbelievable than many.
It is like many of the other Bonds; a combination of smart decisions and luck.
SV is an excellent performer. All aspects were great.
No, but again, it was my second listen.
Simon Vance's performance is excellent, and the story has all the classic Bond elements of fast paced action and interesting characters.
It's a good story, one of the best of the Bonds.
The underwater fight scene is a classic.
It was my second listen, so no visceral reaction this time. It was, however, quite a fun listen.
Fleming stretches style.
There are five different stories, so five different moments. The two that stand out most are the shock Bond has at the end of Quantum of Solace and the gunfight at the end of For Your Eyes Only.
Excellent as always. All characters come to life.
No, but it is a familiar read.
If you are like me, you have to listen to the entire series regardless of how good or bad the novel. This is probably the least impressive of the series, with cardboard cut-out villains.
Considering I've read them all, yes.
SV does an amazing job with all of them.
Not particularly, but it was a good listen regardless.
