A bit outdated, but a good listen on the road

I am glad that Audible has added John Gardner's James Bond novels to its collection. I've read these when I was in high school and enjoyed it very much. The voice artist is doing a splendid job of bringing James Bond alive. Yet this is the Bond of the Cold War, a bit dated with his technology. Gardner also tells a story that is most often quite predictable. Yet, if you are looking for action, some suspense and a not-too-in-depth listen with an old-time favourite as the hero, this is a good listen. It comes highly recommended to hardcore 007 fans.

Oh oh 7

Very entertaining and continues the James (007) Bond legacy. Took me back to the sixties and the height of the films.

Okay

It was well narrated but it felt like I've heard a lot of it before and knew pretty quickly who Blofeld was.

Spoiler alert. This may spoil the upcoming oboe SPECTRE

Usual good fun. A bit predictable. Ultimately satisfying. Give it a go. The narrator does a good job

Only read as part of the whole bond series

One to miss if not. It just doesn't work as a story. To much name dropping not enough story.
