Bond is still Bond

What did you like best about Bond on Bond? What did you like least?

Roger Moore is a pleasure to listen too, some humor that is almost over your shoulder and missed if you do not listen too closely. What did I like the least, I suppose I just expected more regarding the making of the movies, back of set fun and games. This does go into that but seemed to lack. It was too much like a dictionary for my liking

Would you be willing to try another book from Roger Moore? Why or why not?

Yes, a great voice, one I could listen too over and over.

Could you see Bond on Bond being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I have always been particular to say each actor who played Bond was the right one for the moment however, if a movie or TV series of this book would have to be someone with a great wit. Maybe Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese (yes I know he's been in the movies) or even, as this is a book like a dictionary of history, David Tennant or Matt Smith. You can take Bond Seriously but its best done, in my opinion as a retrospective tongue in cheek.

Any additional comments?

This was enjoyable, but be a big fan to listen all the way through. I am glad I did.

The accout of a gentleman

In this book the self deprecating Roger Moore tells the story of the screen hero, James Bond from the first Eon production of Dr No through to the second Craig outing, Quantum of Solace. Moore is generous to a fault, no only in his praise of all of the movies and people involved through to his donation of part proceeds to UNESCO.



What you loose on the plates you gain on the warmth and wit of Moore's voice as he tells us about his and others experiences on the movies. Being a personal friend of both producers, Saltzman and Broccili he has insight into the franchise that no other person has and he brings this into his narrative. Being invited to every opening screening and also being on the set for his seven outings as well as his personal connections makes this a unique account.



This audiobook is a must for any Bond fan or even Moore fan, even if you have the paper version if only to experience that wit and warmth that Moore is now famous for.

Shaken not stirred

I love James Bond and I love listening to Sir Roger Moore, he was my first James Bond and who better to ask to cast his wry eye over the Bonds. He reads his book superbly, giving us all insights into the world of Bond with his humour coming across at all times. Excellent.

Enjoyable

Loved the insights provided by Roger Moore. Well read by him which added to the atmosphere. The only odd downside is there's an interview at the end by an Irish guy... Roger is highly
professionnel wheen asked some stupid question by the interviewer. If you're going tu have an interview as a bonus, then at least get soneone decent to do the interviewing or leave it out!

Do we need Moore

Maybe nothing in this that will be knew to the die hard Bondian but it’s nice to here Moore reminisce none the less. A voice to live for.

Fantastic tales from the late Sir Roger Moore.

What did you like most about Bond on Bond?

It's great to hear Sir Roger reselling tales of Bond through the decades both his own and what he knows about all the others.
Just wish I'd bought the audio book sooner

Fantastic

Have you listened to any of Roger Moore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Sir Roger is as good with his recital as he is with his screen presence
I can just imagine him in a tall back leather arm chair reciting his tales of Bond

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You can just come back to it as and when with Moore's laid back style it's an easy listen

Any additional comments?

Just wish we were able to get more Moore !

For Fans

I'm a big Bond fan and a lot of what you will hear you might know if you would consider yourself a fan.

However Roger has some insights and interesting facts for even fans to enjoy.

Plus he is Bond! :)

A likeable history of Roger Moore's experiences

This is Roger Moore's own telling of his life as James Bond. It covers other parts of his career e.g. The Saint, but really concentrates on Bond and some of Moore's experiences since then (meeting newer Bonds, etc.).

Moore's character comes through very well in the narration and you can tell he genuinely enjoyed his time and considers himself to be very lucky. There are a few things that ring hollow - Moore's attitudes to women (probably contemporary for the time), that everything was fantastic on the shoots (perhaps it was!) but this is me nitpicking.

In summary, if you enjoy or are interested in Bond movies or Roger Moore then this is an enjoyable and easy listen.

If you like celebratory biographies then this is one for you as well.

Dull

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a book for Bond lovers but I like Bond and it was not for me. I found it sounded like a photo book with narrative.

What will your next listen be?

I like biographies and fiction and with that in mind will be listening to the new Robert Galbraith.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Roger Moore?

I found that Roger Moore was sounding his age (sorry - but I do like you really) Daniel Craig would be great though.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

There were some interesting facts on the films which were fun.
