Publisher's Summary

The Moonraker project has a millionaire backer, the war hero Sir Hugo Drax - a man who, it seems, cheats at cards. With a ballistic rocket at stake, Sir Hugo's exposure could threaten Britain's latest defense system, so James Bond is asked to investigate. Moving from London's most exclusive gambling club to a missile silo on the Channel coast, 007 and his Special Branch assistant, Gala Brand, discover there's more to Drax than meets the eye.

This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Bill Nighy.

    "Ian Fleming + Bill Nighy: Perfect combination"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've read Moonraker many times, but Bill Nighy's narration made it feel like it was the first time. He softens the edge to Bond's characterization which somehow gives it more depth. Marvelous.

    "An excellent story"

    As a massive Janes Bond fan, of both the films and original source material, it always surprises me how rich Fleming's novels are; Moonraker was published many years ago (1955), yet it still reads as a fresh, relevant, modern tale. I thoroughly enjoyed the novel and award full marks to Bill N's vocal performance. He is a terrific reader. Overall, it was excellent. Enjoy!

    Story
    "Bridge and rockets"

    A surprisingly well written story brilliantly read by Bill Nighy.

    Knowing just a little bit of bridge and a lot more about rockets I was absolutely thrilled to hear those sections.

    Ian puts together a great story with equal attention to thrill, romance, people as well as scenery.

    I loved to be emerged in the period setting of the (then contemporary) fifties as the story is clearly set in.

    Heartily recommend!

    "Not a fan of the narrator"

    I enjoyed the book, but never liked Bill Nighy, and found his accent, voice and/or style irksome.

    "Surprising how prescient Ian Fleming was.."

    I thoroughly enjoyed Bill Nighy's performance. While the plot is fit for the juvenile reader, simplicity is what I enjoy in my heroes. At least, it's not as dreadful as what Saltzman and Broccoli delivered. My review title derives from a single line in the text that foresaw the terrible potential of atomic weapons in the hands of terrorists.

    "Wonderfull literature. Great performance."

    This is a real great story. Bill Nighy performance elevates it to new highs. Highly recommended. I hope it will find its way to the big screen as is.

    "Better than the movie (no surprise there)"

    I grew up with the Roger Moore movie as a kid and I half-expected some semi-scifi, 60's-driven "comedy" with a metal-toothed henchman. Instead I get a fantastic cold war narrative that delves into Bond's more human side. Great listen!

    "Surprisingly fun"

    Bill nighy is fantastic and makes the experience worthwhile. Bond isn't quite as over the top in the books. Thought there would be more punching and gunplay. No gadgets but still well written.
