    Story
    "Not Gardner's best, but okay time passer"
    What did you love best about Brokenclaw?

    Simon Vance's crisp, smart, and enthusiastic reading helped put this one over the top.


    If you’ve listened to books by John Gardner before, how does this one compare?

    Gardner's Bond stories are always worth the trip, though "Brokenclaw" I found to be only a little bit better than "okay", storywise.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to many of Mr. Vance's performances before, most notably his readings of Ian Fleming's and John Gardner's Bond novels. He does his usual polished job here.


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

    No, this was an okay Bond story, but I was fine listening to it over the course of about a week in my car. Other Bond stories by Gardner I listened to faster to see how they would turn out.


    Any additional comments?

    This one was mainly enjoyable due to the reliably entertaining Simon Vance performance. The story was engaging, but not much more than that.
